Critical Reasoning Question #59: Rheumatoid Arthritis and Vitamin B6  
Time 0 0 : 0 0 : 0 0

Rheumatoid arthritis has been associated with deficiency in Vitamin B6. In parts of Southeast Asia, agriculturists are attempting to lower the frequency of arthritis in the aging population by encouraging farmers to use land for raising versatile meats such as chicken and turkey which are rich in vitamin B6. The plan has good chances of success, since meats are increasingly becoming a part of the region's diet, and the crop varieties currently grown contain little vitamin B6.

Which of the following, if true, most strongly supports the prediction that the plan will succeed?

(A)

The growing conditions required by the varieties of agricultural crops currently cultivated in the region are conditions in which raising poultry farms of chicken and turkey can flourish.

(B)

The flesh of chicken and turkey meats differs from that of the beef meats currently in the region's diet, so traditional meats would look and taste somewhat different when replaced with chicken and turkey.

(C)

There are no other varieties of meats that are significantly richer in vitamin B6 than chicken and turkey is.

(D)

The varieties of meats currently cultivated in the region contain some important nutrients that are lacking in vitamin B6.

(E)

There are other meats currently grown in the region that contain more vitamin B6 than the meats imported do.
