Explanation

The portion of the sentence that begins with “given that” provides a reason for a conclusion reached in the first part of the sentence. Since the study “showed no decreased heart risk for drops in blood pressure below a certain point,” that point may be a threshold below which reductions in blood pressure provide no benefit; that is, they may be “superfluous.”

Thus, the correct answer is superfluous (Choice E).

Can someone give a more elaborate explanation to this question? I seem to not be able to comprehend it correctly even after reading it multiple times.
