Oh I see what you mean. We know the 5000 people are middle aged and elderly but it says those that had moderate to high levels of activity lived 1.4 to 3.6 years longer.

From this we can’t determine whether middle aged people actually took part in the study. It’s possible that they could have but we can’t be certain. Therefore, to say “moderate to high levels of activity in middle aged people can add years”, is not something we can deduce.
Nearly, I think it's to do with the level of activity. The "exercising more" is not supported by the text. Middle aged people who exercised regularly lived longer than people who didn't. It doesn't say that exercising more in/after middle age will add years.

Ahh okay 👌🏻
But would you not agree that the passage doesn’t tell us if the middle aged people actually did any moderate to high levels of activity? Because in that 5000 it could have just been the elderly that took part.

I think that's valid as well. There must have been some.Middle aged people who took part, but it says nothing specific about their exercise levels, which is the focus of the question.

That makes sense. It seems there are many flaws for that statement. Thanks a lot 🙏
