Hi,

Seems to be a fairly easy one. The speaker tells us that the majority of Americans have access to the best medical care available anywhere in the world. Note that no statistics or numbers are presented in the argument. Majority just means means >50%. The objector's response is that "Thousands of poor in this country cannot afford to see a doctor." Looking at options

a) We cannot infer that he is using emotionally charged words. All he mentions is that thousands of Americans cannot afford to see a doctor. Discard
b) He gives no specific examples. Discard
c) The objector's statement in no way contradicts the speaker's statement. Speaker is talking about majority (maybe out of 1 million Americans, 0.6 million have access to a doctor. The speaker says that thousands (1 mill-0.6 mill= 400 thousand) do not have access to a doc. These two statements are not mutually exclusive. Keep this one.
d) Speaker's statement does not confirm or deny the objector's point. Discard
e) Out of scope since there is no cause or effect mentioned in the argument.

C is the answer by POE. Hope this helps.

Cheers!
