".... the publisher who owns the copyright on the novel plans to print a new edition to be made available the same week the film premieres."

The publisher who is going to print a new edition the same of the film premier , wants the film to succeed and this can be more supported only if he is getting some incentive / benefit for doing so.

We need to find an OA which could tell what can benefit him- except !

(4)The actress playing the lead in the film has discussed her love for the novel in nationally televised interviews.

(4) wins because it never hurts the argument that the publisher is getting benefited for promoting film by making new prints of the bestseller book.

I fail to understand why D is the answer. It clearly indicates that publicity of the book has happened by virtue of an actress supporting it. I find B to be a bit shaky because it talks about a book on the author and not the actual book. So it is a bit irrelevant COMPARATIVELY. In other words , I might be interested in reading Jurrasic Park novel after the movie but a biography of Michael Crichton ( author) might not enthuse me at the moment

Hi,

I have been facing the same issue while trying to understand why C is incorrect. Anyhow, the OE goes like this:

Which one does not support the soundness of the publisher’s plan? The publisher hopes the film will renew demand for the out-of-print novel and plans to supply a new edition to meet that demand. The soundness of this plan can be supported by evidence that films have previously created demand for the novels on which they are based, and also by any agreements the publisher has already made with the film studio. Opinions of participants in film production, however, have no direct bearing on the soundness of the plan.

The publisher has made an agreement with the film studio that links the movie with the book, thereby supporting the soundness of the plan.

This piece of evidence supports the soundness of the plan by proving that the link the publisher intends to make between book and film has previously been successful.

The fact that the publisher has already received a form of profit from the link of novel and movie supports the soundness of the plan.

Although the actress’s high opinion of the novel may add interest in the eyes of the public, it has no direct bearing on the soundness of the publisher’s plan.

Proof that a popular film can increase sales of the book on which it is based supports the soundness of the publisher’s plan


The correct answer is D
