The answer is B.
This is quite tricky - a CR question which is actually more like a quant question. solving requires carefully reviewing each answer:


If the information given above is true, which of the following statements must be true?

A. At least 60% of the patients who do not respond to the first treatment respond to some other treatment. we have no data on this
B. At least 30% of the patients who do not respond to the first treatment do not respond to the subsequent treatments as well. 30% of 60% is .3*.6=0.18=18% - while the stem tells us this group (did not respond to anything) is more than 20% - this must be true!
C. Of the 40% patients who respond to their first treatment, at least 50% also respond to some other treatment. -The issue is that we don't know how many don't respond at all: if it's only 20%, then 80% respond to something, meaning at least 20% are included in the 40% group who responded to the first treatment - that's 20%/40% - at least 50%! however, if say 60% don't respond at all, this means that 0 of the 40% do - no way of knowing!
D. Of the people who respond to some treatment, the proportion that responds to the first medication is the lowest. exactly the opposite - 40% responded to the first, and the absolute max that the group which responded at all is 80% - meaning they are AT LEAST 50% of this group - definitely the largest part!
E. Of the 20% patients who responded to no treatment at all, at least 10% would have responded to some treatment had it not included the use of antidepressants. This is completely hypothetical - we have absolutely no information on how these patients would have responded if things were different

The answer is B as 30% of 60% is 18% - while the stem tells us that this group did not respond to anything is more than 20% - this must always be true!
