This is suppossedly MGMT CAT's 700 bin CR:

Doctor: Research shows that adolescents who play video games on a regular basis are three times as likely to develop carpal tunnel syndrome as are adolescents who do not play video games. Federal legislation that prohibits the sale of video games to minors would help curb this painful wrist condition among adolescents.

The doctor’s conclusion depends on which of the following assumptions?
A) The majority of federal legislators would vote for a bill that prohibits the sale of video games to minors.
B) Not all adolescents who play video games on a regular basis suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome.
C) Playing video games is the only way an adolescent can develop carpal tunnel syndrome.
D) Most parents would refuse to purchase video games for their adolescent children.
E) The regular playing of video games by adolescents does not produce such beneficial effects as better hand-eye coordination and improved reaction time.

I am stuck between C and D with more close to D.
C says playing video game is not the only way adolescent can ..... Which implies that there can be many other ways of developing CTS but as per the stem, those play video games are more likely to get it. Hence This
option may or may not be assumed.

In D, If parents themselves buy the games for their adolescents, the legislation would not hold any ground and its very purpose will not be met.Hence I guess, this option is correct since it is assumed that only adolescents go to buy video games..
The keyword could be 'most'. Does it implies majority ?

My take D.

Either C or D. I go for D.

Reason : It says "only". If it was "only", then the author would have said "Federal legislation that prohibits the sale of video games to minors will curb" and not "would help curb"

I know it sounds a little weird. But this and the fact that I couldnt find a better reason to strike out D made me choose D.

That is an excellent observation. My first pick was C initially but since you brought this point up, I lean towards D. What is the OA?

OA is D

Good catch you guys, After reading three times I am still having hard time convincing myself on the logic, but looking at the fine print mentioned above I kind of get it.

Seems incredibly hard of a task to see such minor detail in time pressure though.
