    Select Question Language :


    Directions: The given question is based on the following paragraph.

    A National Institute of Health, Atlanta study shows that uncooked or improperly cooked pork consumption results in a severely infections disease of the liver, caused by an organism called the tapeworm. In this study, 1000 humans in an experimental group were given improperly cooked pork while a control group (consisting of 1000 humans) was given perfectly cooked pork. Within a couple of weeks, around 80% of those who had consumed partially cooked pork showed symptoms of the tapeworm infection. Thus, the study concluded that the infection must be due to the organism, which does not get killed, in case the pork is not properly cooked.

    The above line of argument would be most greatly strengthened if it can be shown that
    1.         nearly all the experimental group subjects who contracted the infection developed severe complications of the liver later
    2.         the normal incidence of this disease among humans is just 0.01% in case of those not eating pork meat
    3.         those eating heavier quantities of improperly cooked pork develop more serious complications as compared to others who eat lighter quantities
    4.         the treatment for tapeworm infection involves a rather longish time wherein the patient is on a light, vegetarian diet
    5.         the tapeworm spends a great part of its overall lifecycle in the body of a pig, wherefrom it is transmitted to humans
