Mehran on March 1, 2016Hi @AnkitM, thanks for your question. Two points about answer choice (C). First of all, even if this question stem was a "main point" question (which it is not; see notes below), answer choice (C) would be wrong. It is too narrow. The main point of the passage as a whole is not only to dismiss the *historical* doubts, but to dismiss (much more generally) all the enumerated doubts and critiques of the Hippocratic oath. Notice how the historical point is raised and dismissed in just one small part of the passage: lines 28-41.
Parker on July 12, 2018Why isn't answer choice E correct? Doesn't the author advocate for some sort of revision?
Anita on July 12, 2018@Parker-Zopp Here, the author is much more affirming that the oath is still vital than advocating for any change. The note about it changing at the end is meant to show that it's flexible to updates in its current capacity, rather than advocating for revising it.
