Eclampsia in pregnancy is especially prevalent among women who are seriously malnourished. In order to achieve early detection of eclampsia in these individuals, public health officials distributed pamphlets explaining the importance of early detection of this potentially fatal disease.

Which of the following, if true, is the best criticism of the use of the pamphlet as a method of achieving the public health officials’ goal?


(A) Many prenatal diseases produce symptoms that cannot be detected by the patient.

(B) Once Eclampsia has been detected, the effectiveness of treatment can vary from person to person.

(C) The pamphlet was sent to all town residents, including those individuals who are not pregnant.

(D) Eclampsia is much more common in very young and very old mothers, rather than in those at the height of their productive years.

(E) Pregnant women who are seriously malnourished are often homeless and thus unlikely to receive and read the pamphlet.

60 secs.

I read the choices from A to E. Had I done it in reverse order, I'd have saved 20 minutes.
