I got stumped in this critical reasoning question. The system states that the correct answer choice is (A) however, my intuition points to answer choice (B). Why is my choice incorrect and the answer choice A, correct?
Thank You in advance for your time.
Alonso: The introduction of a new drug into the marketplace should be contingent upon our having a good understanding of its social impact. However, the social impact of the newly marketed antihistamine is far from clear. It is obvious, then, that there should be a general reduction in the pace of bringing to the marketplace new drugs that are now being created. [/b]
Which one of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument?
[b](A) The social impact of the new antihistamine is much better understood than that of most new drugs being tested. [/b]
(B) The social impact of some of the new drugs being tested is poorly understood.
(C) The economic success of some drugs is inversely proportional to how well we understand their social impact.
(D) The new antihistamine is chemically similar to some of the new drugs being tested.
(E) The new antihistamine should be next on the market only if most new drugs being tested should be on the market also.
