thanks, I am confused about the way answer choice D was phrased: "the Beverage was not the only cause of the ineffectiveness of the prescribed dosage", which implies that the Beverage is one of the causes, but from the second set of recommendations and results of their application(without knowing the 3rd recommendations or results), we can not know whether or not the beverage is the cause, it could just be the doc has prescribed the wrong drugs. please can anyone help?

thanks very much.

Albert

That's not borne out by the results, Albert! The medication did prove to be effective after the doctor eliminated the beverage AND doubled the dose. So he was right that the dosage was too low, but the beverage was also causing a problem. Remember, doubling the dose didn't fix the problem, so the dosage alone wasn't the issue. Getting rid of the beverage but keeping the original dose didn't fix the problem either, so the beverage alone was not the problem. Only doing both did the trick, so that indicates that there were two problems that needed to be resolved.

thanks, Adam for your reply! I think I know where I got wrong: I interpreted the question stem as how the 2nd set of recommendations and results supported the initial hypothesis WITHOUT KNOWING THE FINAL RESULTS, so stopped the beverage and maintained the initial dosage, and nothing happened.
