Option A explains why the stereotype that mood disorder enhances creativity is dangerous: it could stop people from seeking medical attention. Option B talks of 'differences that may vary systematically' between 'the groups'. What groups? People who achieve creative success and 'the average' person. According to B, these groups differ in that those who achieve creative success face the stress of being in the public eye, while the average person does not. There is no obvious link between B and A. Now, option C talks of groups too-- those in 'creative groups', which include successful writers and artists, and those in the 'less-creative' group, which includes the 'average' people living in the area where the study takes place. It's clear that B and C have a common thread, and that C will precede B in a paragraph. Option D states that 'just that component' could account for differences in cases of mood disorder. What is this 'component'? D states that stress is a major cause for the onset of mood disorders. Now, option B also refers to stress, about this being one of the differences between those who achieve creative success and the 'average' person. CBD forms a cogent paragraph. The main idea of this paragraph is that creative people are subject to the stress of being in the public eye and stress, by itself, is a cause for mood disorder. Option A is the one to be eliminated. None of the other sentences relate to the danger of thinking that creativity is enhanced mood disorder. Correct Answer: Choice (A)
