HideShow timer Statistics

Two groups of laboratory mice were injected with cancerous cells. One group’s cages were rotated in a disorienting manner. Two-thirds of these mice developed cancers. One-tenth of the mice in stationary cages developed cancers. The researchers concluded that stress enhances the development of cancer in laboratory mice.
The researchers’ conclusion logically depends on which of the following assumptions?
(A) Rotating the cages in disorienting manner produced stress in the mice in those cages.
(B) The injections given to the two groups of mice were not of equal strength.
(C) Injecting the mice with cancerous cells caused stress in the mice.
(D) Even without the injections the mice in the rotated cages would have developed cancers.
(E) Even the rotation of cages in a manner that is not disorienting is likely to produce stress in mice in those cages.

B. The injections given to the two groups of mice were of equal strength.

A right away !! This supports that stress enchances developement of cancerous cells.

A too

be careful with D, it is not an assumption, it is a deeper conclusion than the one that is already given in the statement

The key word here is stress enhances the development of cancer.

If A were not true, then the argument would fall apart.

A is the assumption. As suggested my Himalaya, I would not dispute B also.

clearly A. Try to negate it and the conclusion would fall apart..
