Someone who gets sick from eating a meal will often develop a strong distaste for the one food in the meal that had the most distinctive ﬂavor, whether or not that food caused the sickness. This phenomenon explains why children are especially likely to develop strong aversions to some foods.

Which one of the following, if true, provides the strongest support for the explanation?

A. Children are more likely than adults to be given meals composed of foods lacking especially distinctive ﬂavors.
B. Children are less likely than adults to see a connection between their health and the foods they eat
C. Children tend to have more acute taste and to become sick more often than adults do
D. Children typically recover more slowly than adults do from sickness caused by food

Irrespective of which food caused the sickness, someone doesn't like the food which had a distinctive flavor. The argument applies the rule to explain the reason for children to develop aversion towards some foods.

A. Children are more likely than adults to be given meals composed of foods lacking especially distinctive ﬂavors. - Incorrect - Out of scope.

B. Children are less likely than adults to see a connection between their health and the foods they eat - Incorrect - Out of scope

C. Children tend to have more acute taste and to become sick more often than adults do - Correct - The argument talks about sickness and taste. This option strengthens the argument by stating that children have the ability to perceive taste and children fall sick.

D. Children typically recover more slowly than adults do from sickness caused by food - Incorrect - Out of scope

E. Children are more likely than are adults to refuse to eat unfamiliar foods. - Incorrect - Children may refuse to eat unfamiliar foods. But it does not strengthen the reason for taste aversion mentioned in the argument.

since the question does not have a specific and reliable source, this question is unlikely to appear in the actual Gmat.
The question does not have a common pattern either.
A and D weakens.
B and E are out of scope.
