Choose the statement that is best supported by the information given in the question passage.

1. 

Yoga has become a very popular type of exercise, but it may not be for everyone. Before you sign yourself up for a yoga class, you need to examine what it is you want from your fitness routine. If you're looking for a high-energy, fast-paced aerobic workout, a yoga class might not be your best choice.
This paragraph best supports the statement that

[A]. yoga is more popular than high-impact aerobics.
[B]. before embarking on a new exercise regimen, you should think about your needs and desires.
[C]. yoga is changing the world of fitness in major ways
[D]. yoga benefits your body and mind
[E]. most people think that yoga isn't a rigorous form of exercise.

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

The second sentence points out that people should examine what they want from a fitness routine before signing up for a new exercise class. There is no evidence to support choice a. Choice c might sound reasonable due to the fact that the paragraph tells us that yoga has become very popular, but this statement is not supported by the information provided in the paragraph. Choices d and e are also not supported since the paragraph doesn't tell us whether yoga is good for both body and mind or what people think about it.

It should be E.

"If you're looking for a high-energy, fast-paced aerobic workout, a yoga class might not be your best choice".

Support the idea that "yoga isn't a rigorous form of exercise".
