It is more desirable to have some form of socialized medicine than a system of medical care relying on the private sector. Socialized medicine is more broadly accessible than is private-sector system. In addition, since countries with socialized medicine have a lower infant morality rate than do countries with a system relying entirely on the private sector, socialized medicine seems to be technologically superior.
Which one of the following best indicates a flaw in the argument about the technological superiority of socialized medicine?OPTIONS
[A]. The lower infant mortality rate might be due to the systems allowing greater access to medical care.
[B]. There is no necessary connection between the economic system of socialism and technological achievement.
[C]. Infant mortality is a reliable indicator of the quality of medical care for children.
[D]. No list is presented of the countries whose infant mortality statistics are summarized under the two categories, “socialized” and “private-sector.”
[E]. The argument presupposes the desirability of socialized medicine, which is what the argument seeks to establish.
