Over the past ten years more than two dozen athletes have died from the medical condition known as heatstroke. Heatstroke occurs when the body’s internal temperature becomes so elevated that its cooling system begins shutting down...A promising new product hopes to end the all too common heatstroke trend. It is called a thermometer pill. While these tiny lifesavers have proven to be effective, they are quite expensive. On average the cost is $50.00 per pill. However, many parents of young athletes say that it is a small price to pay for the peace of mind it gives them on a hot, sultry day

Which of these is the MOST ACCURATE evaluation of the comprehensiveness and validity of evidence for the last statement in this passage? A)Evidence is provided, but specific numbers are not included in the passage. B)No evidence or documentation is given for the last statement in this passage. C)The statement is common knowledge, so no evidence is needed for it to be valid. D)The author includes only parents of football players for evidence of her last statement.

    Wouldn't the answer be "B) No evidence or documentation is given for the last statement in this passage" because although this passage talks about how much it is, and that parents say it is a small price to pay for their child's well being. It does not give reliable evidence to support that these pills actually do work, it says that these pills are proven to be effective but it does not give the evidence to support this statement.
