Hi pghai,

Thanks for the explanation.

At the end of the tunnel, I can finally see some "light".


P:S- However, I still have doubts on whether it is an assumption or a fact. However, would like to leave it at that.

B it is, as that is the only option that provides an alternative explanation as to why the sales performed poorly;

Not D because if it were true you would expect the sale to be more.
Not E because it says the sales were relatively higher for competitors. Let's say that originally company used to sell 100 razors and for the new model it sold 10 and it's competitors sold more; let's say 20, whereas they used to sell 40. This figure still shows that the sales are lower and therefore does not provide an alternate explanation or a new finding that challenges the original finding.

Just to add to the comments above, from my experience of mostly selecting the tempting yet incorrect choices, I have realized the correct answer choice is mostly set in the same context as is the argument.

To elucidate, one of the premises explicitly mentions the comparison between NEW model with MORE PRECITION and OLD model with LESS PRCISION.
This happens to the reasoning for the conclusion, PRECISION is not important.

Therefore, answer choice preferably needs to in the NEW model-OLD model context. Moreover, Option E says RELATIVELY WELL does not really counter the POORLY sale of new model.
