When I first saw the multiple choices, I really wanted to choose B. But, Because the answer stated: "Self-sufficiency contribute to person's well-being" it didn't really say whether that contribution will increase or decrease the overall well-being (which the conclusion state it would "diminish the overall well-being"). Am I thinking too deep or am I just missing something?
Well, to contribute is to add to or to increase. So to contribute to a person's well-being means to increase her well-being.
Put it another way: if an act diminished a person's well-being, we could not accurately say that the act had contributed to her well-being; it detracted from it!
When formulating my answer for this question, I had written that some people require self-sufficiency for their well-being. I was surprised to see stronger language in answer choice B.
I actually pegged B as a sufficient assumption answer, but after reviewing the other answers, it was the only one that worked.
Could B be considered a correct sufficient assumption answer, or does the word 'contribute' lower the burden of proof away from sufficiency? Thanks
To say that something is required for a second thing is much more aggressive than to say that it contributes to something else.
For example, complex carbohydrates are not required for human survival. Nevertheless, eating complex carbs can contribute to a human's survival odds.
