A: There is firm evidence that information communicated in a textual format is more convincing than the same information conveyed in the form of visual depictions B: There is firm evidence that information conveyed in the form of visual depictions is more convincing than the same information communicated in a textual format C: A survey reveals that 79% of smokers look at their cigarette packages when taking out a cigarette D: A study of over 3,000 individuals shows a statistically significant relationship between smoking and pulmonary damage 40.The passage does NOT state which of the following about smoking warnings?
