Question number 50

During the IMAT test on 9th September 2011, it was noted that the question shown below contained an error as both C and D were identical.
However, it has been decided that as the correct answer was option B, the presence of the two identical answers, both wrong, does not affect the validity of the question nor would it adversely affect performance of candidates answering this question. The question will therefore remain in the overall test score calculation which is out of 80.
