Hi guys - for some reason I was stuck on this one problem
Because humans have evolved very little since the development of agriculture, it is clear that humans are still biologically adapted to a diet of wild foods, consisting mainly of raw fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, lean meat and seafood. Straying from this diet has often resulted in chronic illness and other physical problems. Thus, the more our diets consists of wild foods, the healthier we will be.
The claim that "humans are still biologically adapted to a diet of wild foods" plays which one of the following roles...
C- it is a phenomenon for which the main conclusion of the nutritionist's arg. is cited as an explanation
- I thought this was the answer because "humans biologically adapted to a diet of wild foods" is a phenomenon (thing) and the main conclusion states that the more our diets consist of wild foods the healthier we will be (isnt this their explanation).
D - it is an intermediate conclusion for which one claim is offered as support and which is used in turn to support the argument's main conclusion
- for this answer choice I also see how this is correct
D ended up being the right answer.
The main conclusion doesn't support/explain the statement in the question...it's the other way around. Just look at the flow of the argument. The main conclusion is the last senetence and everything before it supports it. Answer D reflects the logical flow of the stimulus.
