I posted on here before about this question, but I still don't feel confident about it. Just because Lycopene is more abundant in fruits and vegetables, doesn't mean that the people in the study got their lycopene dose from fruits and vegetables. The stimulus never states that the people in the study got their lycopene doses from fruits/veggies, so how can we make that leap in answer choice A?

Hi LSAT12345,
Since this is a Weaken question you can bring in outside information in order to highlight a problem in the argument. Answer A attacks the conclusion of the argument which says that lycopenes reduce the risk of stroke. Specifically, Answer A is saying that it may be other things that are reducing the risk of stroke, so the lycopenes may have nothing to do with it.
Hope that helps!
