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.

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 irrelevant since it tells us nothing about the blend itself
(B) not all of Kreemo’s competitors use Colombian
coffee beans in the blends of coffee they sell irrelevant, we want to dispell that Kreemo is the best, this doesn't provide anything for us to dispell. Some competitors use Columbian coffee beans..but we can't deduce that they will be better than Kreemo
(C) Kreemo sells more coffee than does any other
company correct. The simple reasoning bean, if Kreemo is a large coffee retailer, than their blend could have only a tiny ounce of columbian coffee and still that could make them the largest purchaser of columbian coffee.
(D) Kreemo’s coffee is the most expensive blended
coffee available today maybe they have jacked their prices up. Most expensive doesn't mean best.
(E) the best unblended coffee is better than the best
blended coffee. irrelevant. how is this related to Kreemo? so eliminate


for the above reasons C is the ans IMO
