DISCUSSION: You have to refer to the passage on this question.
Note that the question isn’t asking what wine can do. It’s asking what could prevent heart disease.
For example, wine can’t increase the body’s ability to remove lipids (answer B), as far as we know. But we know that increased lipid processing would help prevent heart disease.
The right answer has to be something that doesn’t prevent heart disease. It doesn’t matter whether it has anything to do with wine.
- CORRECT. This sounds bad. Lines 35-38 say that it’s better when platelets clot less.
- Lines 17-22 show that more lipids are bad. So fewer must be good.
- Lines 22-24 show that wine alcohol is absorbed more slowly. This helps with lipid processing, which alcohol normally slows (lines 17-20). That helps prevent heart disease.
- That’s lines 34-37. We don’t know what the compound is, but it helps reduce clotting.
- That’s line 37-40. They say this directly.
