I don't understand why A isn't a better answer here. If the arthritis patients are reporting varying accounts about how long it takes the weather to affect them, it sounds to me like the weather affecting some patients more quickly than others would account for the data very neatly.
It might help to think of it this way: while (A) is a possible explanation, we certainly don't have the evidence here to say that the data indicate it is true.
If you substitute "ESP" for "pain intensity" I think you'll see this in a very organic way.
I also got stuck in this question and finally thought this through. I think it might be helpful to think of this question as a combination of inference and reconcile type. We need to conclude from the two premises, which should be taken as true.
As for answer choice B, just like the placebo effect, B itself proves the correlation between weather features and increasing pain, just that weather works on these people's mind, which in turn causes the pain.
some sufferers reported pain at different times which i thought could have been explained by them thinking about the causes at different times. I can now see that I have to draw a bridge in order to make that conclusion whereas C was more substantiated in the stimulus.
I think B directly contradicts "researchers tried but failed to find any correlation between pain intensity and those features of the weather" but under time constraints I was confused because some people were convinced that they were experiencing pain.
