Re: CR: Cement Manufacturer [#permalink]

A leading cement manufacturer has been having problems processing manufacturing and delivery records since it expanded its operations. To solve this problem, it plans to install a new platform on its central computing system which will run its tracking program five times faster than the current system does.
Which one of the following casts the most serious doubt on the manufacturer’s plan?
(A)Not all computer platforms can make the company’s tracking program run more quickly --> not all, but it can't change the fact that there is still a new platform can do it
(B)The cost of the new computer platform will require the cement manufacturer to raise prices for its products --> cost of producing is out of scope
(C)The cement company’s computer system does not have the capability to run the new platform and cannot be updated -->the best. Because of this, although the new platform system is quite good, it is useless because it can't integrate with the computer system
(D)The company has been increasing sales of cement by 1.5 percent a month for the past 18 months --> although the company enhance its business' sales, it still have difficult in managing its expanded business. And this choice has no influence on the argument
(E) A completely new computer system could make the program run six times faster than it does currently --> out of scope
