Hello,
Can someone please explain to me how A does not resolve the paradox?

Thank you.

Hi Candace,

In that one, the apparent paradox is that people who eat a lot of honey don't get as many cavities as others, even though honey has a lot of sugar.

Answer choice (E) resolves the paradox, providing that honey inhibits the bacteria that cause tooth decay.

Answer choice (A) provides that people who eat a lot of honey don't consume much other sugar. But they still eat a lot of honey, and honey has a lot of sugar, maintaining the apparent paradox.

I hope that's helpful! Please let me know--thanks!

-Steve
