Hi guys,

IMO B

A the sentence has nothing to do with the first part of the sentence
B Hold, because if there are a lot of people who don't join online communities, you cannot take the member of those communitites to obtain a real data
C for me it is a little bit stupid
D the sentence has nothing to do with the first part of the sentence
E if so, the number of members would be a very accurate number

OA and Source?

Thanks

OA is E.

Reasoning:How could the survey overestimate the number of girls with anorexia? The number quoted in the passage refers to the number of members of pro-anorexia discussion communities. Since membership in a discussion community is the only criteria for being counted in the survey, it is possible that some community members are not themselves diagnosed anorexics.
