### HideShow timer Statistics

The latest study indicates that women who exercise daily have a higher rate of metabolism than women who do not exercise, lending support to the view that lack of exercise contributes to slow metabolism.

The argument would be weakened most by pointing out which of the following ?

(A) Statistics can be deceiving.
(B) Many genetic backgrounds were represented in both the exercising and non-exercising groups.
(C) Participants in the study were chosen at random from a larger population.
(D) Some women who did not exercise had higher rates of metabolism than some women who did.
(E) Many variables, such as the ages and diets of participants were not accounted for in the study.

between 'D' & 'E'. I'll go for 'E'.

Good question.

E should be it. E says daily exercise is not the single factor to have a higher rate of metabolism than women who do not exercise daily.

Only D and E are relevant.

Even though I will choose E in the GMAT, I am unable to dismiss D. D directly refutes the argument. Can anyone explain why E is better than D.

Thanks,

I think the assumption of the author is exercise is the ONLY single factor contributing to the heigher rate of metabolism.

If we can show that excercise is not the ONLY single factor, the the argument falls apart.

D highlights some exceptions but is not as strong as E, since E attacks the assumption directly.

I am not good at CR, but I am working on it.

Any tips guys...especially Ranga, Darth, Himalaya and HMTG

the OA is E

D is close. However, some variation would not affect the value of the study. No generalization from a study such as this need to be true in every case to be valid.

D directly refutes it.

E kind of does, but is very weak

This is a poor question.
