Fact: More computers purchased than computer programs purchased.
Conclusion: Germans been duplicating computer programs illegally.
Reasonable objections/explanations to the fact can be:
1. Some Germans write their own program so need to buy pcs but not programs.
2. Some Germans use free programs instead of buying commercial programs.
3. Some Germans don't keep any program in their pcs.
4. Some Germans may have copied the programs legally.
(A) Few German computer users write their own
(B) There are few free noncommercial computer
programs available in Germany.
(C) Some Germans purchase computers outside of
Germany for use in Germany, and such
purchases were counted in the survey.
No use. If it was about computer programs purchased outside of Germany instead of pcs, then it would be useful.
(D) The typical German computer user has several
commercially written computer programs on
his or her computer.
(E) Many Germans legally make duplicates of
commercial computer programs, but such
duplicates were counted as purchased copies in
My choice would be C.
Keep on asking, and it will be given you;
keep on seeking, and you will find;
keep on knocking, and it will be opened to you.
