A famous football player recently won a lawsuit against an advertising firm for using an actor in a fundraising event to appear as a football player to sign autographs and take pictures with attendees. As a result of the lawsuit, advertising firms will stop using actors to impersonate famous athletes. Therefore, advertising costs will rise, since actual famous athlete costs more than that of impersonating actor.

The conclusion above is based on which of the following assumptions?

(A) Most attendees are unable to distinguish a famous athlete from a impersonating actor.
(B) Events using famous athletes are usually more successfull than those that use impersonating actors.
(C) Some famous atheltes who would be popular at such events are ill at present.
(D) Advertising firms will continue to use imitators to impersonate famous athletes but will do so with the disclosure that the actors are not real athletes.
(E) Events will continue to attract attendees with the opportunity to recieve an autograph by and a a picture with a famous athlete

Conclusion:advertising costs will rise
Fact1: One football player has own the law suit against an advertising firm.-->
Fact2: Add firm will stop using actors to impersonate athletes.

Assumption: 1. Cost of actual athletes is more than that of actors
2. There is no alternative for athletes in the fund raising event.

option E is the only option close to assumption2. As fund raiser will be effective with athletes and due to court ruling add firm can not use actors to impersonate. they have no other option but go with athletes.

by the way, all options looks very irrelevant at firs glance. good question
