In passage there is nothing mentioned about comparison of vaccine and inoculum dosage so how we can infer they are "likely to be more similar" ?


Also, read the following line.

Quote:
However, due to extreme disparities in the type and amount of virus used, health practitioners could offer no real prediction of how severe a case a given patient might contract after being inoculated.


From the above line, we can infer that two doses of inoculum are going to produce a variety of results and hence are less similar.

Re: The first smallpox prevention methods were inoculations, in [#permalink]
Hello how can option A for first one qualify ?

-- A Vaccination replaced inoculation because it was a safer method of protecting against disease.
Isnt disease a too broad scope for answering?
Also the passage mentions vaccination poses a much lower risk of fatal infection .. and not otherwise

Can you please help clarify ? which is the best way to tackle passage suggest questions?

Hey,

Check this : Inoculation differs from vaccination. HOW ? It uses a standard dose of dead or weakened virus culture and therefore poses a much lower risk of fatal infection.

From this, we can infer that a vaccination was much more safer than inoculation.

The passage only talks abut smallpox so there is no issue for broader scope for the word disease.

For suggest question - keep one thing in mind. Do not think outside the scope of the passage. No general knowledge but just what the passage indicates.

Please ask if the doubt remains.
