Question Stats:

50% (00:54) correct 50% (01:35) wrong based on 48 sessions
Government restrictions have severely limited the amount of stem cell research companies in the United States can conduct. Because of these restrictions, many scientists previously based in the United States and specializing in the field of stem cell research have signed long-term contracts to work for foreign companies. Recently, Congress has proposed lifting all restrictions on stem cell research.

Which of the following conclusions can most properly be inferred from the information above?

(A) At least some foreign companies that conduct stem cell research work under fewer restrictions than some United States companies do.
(B) Because scientists previously based in the U.S. are under long-term contracts to foreign companies, there will be a significant influx of foreign professionals into the United States.
(C) In all parts of the world, stem cell research is dependent on the financial backing of local government.
(D) In the near future, U.S. companies will no longer be at the forefront of stem cell research.
(E) If restrictions on stem cell research are lifted, many of the scientists previously based in the United States will break their contracts to return to U.S. companies.

Kudos for R.A.E

In inference questions, you should read very carefully.

B is out of scope as you can see.

A is the answer.

You do not have enough information in the passage to assert if the scientists will break their contract or not.

Since the scientists established contracts with foreign countries when there is the restriction, one can safely conclude that there is less restriction in spme other country. While we cannot surely say anything about the validity of B,C,D,E. The correct answer is C.

Here,

Govt restriction = Limited research of stem cell in US = This led to many scientist to sign long contracts for foreign companies.

This infer that there are fewer restriction in foreign companies or else the scientist won't sign a long term contract.

So option A is the right choice.

Option B:- "there will be a significant influx of foreign professionals into the United States" : Can we infer this? as this is a doubtful situation as nothing is mentioned about the foreign companies and if there are even fewer restriction after the recent proposal in US - we really can't infer it, so this is not an option

Option C: Is there any mention of financial backing in the passage? we can't infer that, so option C is out

Option D: There are no information in the passage about America's present and future position in regards to stem cell, so option D is out

Option E: Again there are no information about the statement and we do not know whether the scientist will break the contract or not, so option E is out

The answer is A because that is the only answer which has sufficient information in its support.
