P: many people develop severe back problems during adulthood, and that virtually all such people who received chiropractic treatment showed great improvement.

C: recommended that chiropractic treatment be directed toward those adults who suffer from severe back problems.

PoE eliminates all other choices but C.

c)Individuals who receive chiropractic or other treatment prior to developing severe back problems are not less likely to develop back pain than those who do not.


Conclusion states that the treatment is recommended for adults who suffer from severe back problems. Choice C states that treatment is used as a relief from back pain and not to avoid back pain since Individuals who receive chiropractic or other treatment prior to developing severe back problems are not less likely to develop back pain than those who do not. So even if you are using the treatment without any back ailment; you would still have a chance to develop serious back problem.

Therefore, in order to minimize the proportion of the population that suffers from back pain, the Ergonomic Society recommended that chiropractic treatment be directed toward those adults who suffer from severe back problems.

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?

(A) Any person who receives chiropractic treatment for back pain may also benefit from other forms of treatment.

(B) Large insurance carriers cover chiropractic care for back problems to a lesser degree than they do other medical treatments.

(C) Individuals who receive chiropractic or other treatment prior to developing severe back problems are not less likely to develop back pain than those who do not.

(D) Chiropractic treatment is more effective in treating severe back problems when utilized over a long period of time, as opposed to sporadically.

(E) Severe back pain and other problems often cause individuals to miss workdays.


Use of POE will help here:

Conclusion : Therefore, chiropractic treatment be directed toward those adults who suffer from severe back problems.

(A) Any person who receives chiropractic treatment for back pain may also benefit from other forms of treatment. Other treatments (Irrelevant)

(B) Large insurance carriers cover chiropractic care for back problems to a lesser degree than they do other medical treatments. Irrelevant.

(C) Individuals who receive chiropractic or other treatment prior to developing severe back problems are not less likely to develop back pain than those who do not.

(D) Chiropractic treatment is more effective in treating severe back problems when utilized over a long period of time, as opposed to sporadically. Not mentioned anywhere. Irrelevant

(E) Severe back pain and other problems often cause individuals to miss workdays.[/quote] Out of scope.

Only (C) left.
