12-A consumer survey of independent feature films revealed that the percentage of action films that received the survey's highest rating was greater than the percentage of romance films that received the highest rating. Yet, the survey organizers were probably erroneous in their conclusion that subject matter determines a feature film's popular appeal, since the action films were all directed by filmmakers with at least one hit film to their credit, while the romance films were directed by newer filmmakers, many of whom had not produced a previous film.

12. Each of the following, if true, supports the author's contention that the organizers misinterpreted the survey data EXCEPT:

A The fact that one has directed a previous hit film is a positive indicator of that director's filmmaking tale B Consumer ratings of a new film are influenced by the previous history of success of the film's director.
C Action films generally require larger budgets than romance films and are thus prohibitive for many first-time film directors.
D It is rare for the films of first-time directors to attain the popular appeal of films directed by filmmakers with at least one hit film to their credit.
(E Directors who have produced a previous hit film generally obtain the
largest budgets and attract the most talented and well-known actors for
their subsequent films.
