HideShow timer Statistics

The Timas are members of an indigenous tribe of relatively closely related people who have for centuries occupied an area now located partly within the nation of Gredaria and partly within the nation of Lexica. In the Timas who live in what is now part of Gredaria, the rate of diabetes is extremely high in comparison with the rate in people in general; 38 percent of the Timas in Gredaria are currently experiencing diabetes. As the Timas in Gredaria tend to consume large amounts of heavily processed foods, their high rate of diabetes must result from their dietary choices.

Which of the following, if true, would provide further evidence supporting the above conclusion?

A. Among the 62 percent of Timas living in Gredaria who are not experiencing diabetes are many who consume large amounts of heavily processed foods.

B. When asked, Timas who eat heavily processed foods and are experiencing diabetes generally indicate that they are not aware that there could be a connection between their diets and their health issues.

C. Because Gredaria is a technologically advanced nation, Timas in Gredaria who are experiencing diabetes have access to advanced medications for managing diabetes symptoms.

D. In the Timas who live in Lexica, who consume a traditional diet that includes no heavily processed foods, the rate of diabetes is 7 percent.

E. The Timas who maintain healthy body weights as a result of their engaging in strenuous activity while farming experience diabetes only rarely.

Which of the following, if true, would provide further evidence supporting the above conclusion?


A. Among the 62 percent of Timas living in Gredaria who are not experiencing diabetes are many who consume large amounts of heavily processed foods.
This choice actually weakens the argument. This choice points out that the high rate of diabetes doesn't result from consumming heavily processed foods

B. When asked, Timas who eat heavily processed foods and are experiencing diabetes generally indicate that they are not aware that there could be a connection between their diets and their health issues.
aware or not is irrelevant to the arguement

C. Because Gredaria is a technologically advanced nation, Timas in Gredaria who are experiencing diabetes have access to advanced medications for managing diabetes symptoms.
Advanced mediacation is irrelevant to the argument

D. In the Timas who live in Lexica, who consume a traditional diet that includes no heavily processed foods, the rate of diabetes is 7 percent.
Correct. This choice clearly indicates that if people in the Timas stay away from heavily processed foods,
their health will be better and in return, the rate of diabetes is lower.


E. The Timas who maintain healthy body weights as a result of their engaging in strenuous activity while farming experience diabetes only rarely.
The argument focuses on consuming heavily processed foods, not on engaging in strenuous activity

How can a higher percentage denote a higher number and a lesser percentage denote a lesser number ?
Lets say 100 Timas are living in Gredaria, then 38% of 100 is 38 So 38 Timas are diabetic and 62 Timas are non diabetic.
Lets say 1000 Timas are living in Lexica , Only 7% are diabetic , 7% of 1000 is 70.

So 70 is greater than 38 so even if the percentage of people in Lexica is less the actual number is more.
So option D could be the answer if there were an equal number of people living in both Gredaria, and Lexica , or there were more people in Gredaria,

A higher percentage of a higher number is definitely more than a lesser percentage of a lesser number.
