11. Advertisement: The world’s best coffee beans come from Colombia. The more Colombian beans in a blend of coffee, the better the blend, and no company purchases more Colombian beans than Kreemo Coffee, Inc. So it only stands to reason that if you buy a can of Kreemo’s coffee, you’re buying the best blended coffee available today.

The reasoning of the argument in the advertisement is flawed because it overlooks the possibility that

(A) the equipment used by Kreemo to blend and package its coffee is no different from that used by most other coffee producers
(B) not all of Kreemo’s competitors use Colombian coffee beans in the blends of coffee they sell
(C) Kreemo sells more coffee than does any other company
(D) Kreemo’s coffee is the most expensive blended coffee available today
(E) the best unblended coffee is better than the best blended coffee

Re: CR: Colombian Coffee [#permalink] New post 02 May 2005, 15:10
C is quite a straightforward choice.

A is wrong because the passage doesn't mention that the equipment contributes to the taste/quality of blended coffee.
B is straightforward - if competitors dont use the best coffee beans in the blend, they're not as good anyway.
C is true because despite buying the most amount of best coffees, if it sells by far maximum coffee, the proportion of columbian coffee in the blend decreases.
D is irrelevant - to the quality and focusses on cost.
E, if true, could merit attention. However, it contradicts the first statement "The world’s best coffee beans come from Colombia. The more Colombian beans in a blend of coffee, the better the blend".

Any other choices?

Thanks.

C. They could sell millions of tons of coffee with just a tinge of the columbian bean blend. Yet, the tinge could equal tens of thousands of tons....

Why not E? It looks tempting.


Wunderbar,

This is quoted from the passage

"So it only stands to reason that if you buy a can of Kreemo’s coffee, you’re buying the best blended coffee available today."

And the question is the argument could be flawed because it might overlook something.

Now obviously, the question was talking about "the best blended coffee". Thus the case of unblended coffee being better than blended one doesn't come into the picture because it was not even asked.

Hope that helps.

The question is about blended coffee only. But if Kreemo sells more, it may buy more colombian beens. There is no information regarding the proportion of colombian beens in Kreemo's coffee.

Kreemo sells more => kreemo buys more colombian coffe; not that it has the highest proportion of Colombian coffee.

Hence C.
