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

C... they sell more so they purchase more. Does not increase quality.

yeah the argument is flawed because it shifts the focus from the number of beans per blend to the number of beans in all the blends sold.

(C)

C.

The company may be the largest selling company hence it has to purchase the largest amount of columbian coffee.
This fact is ignored in the reasoning.
