Advertiser: The revenue that newspapers and magazines earn by publishing advertisements allows publishers to keep the prices per copy of their publications much lower than would otherwise be possible. Therefore, consumers benefit economically from advertising.
Consumer: But who pays for the advertising that pays for low-priced newspapers and magazines? We consumers do, because advertisers pass along advertising costs to us through the higher prices they charge for their products.
Which of the following best describes how the consumer counters the advertiserтАЩs argument?
(A) By alleging something that, if true, would weaken the plausibility of the advertiserтАЩs conclusion
(B) By questioning the truth of the purportedly factual statement on which the advertiserтАЩs conclusion is based
(C) By offering an interpretation of the advertiserтАЩs opening statement that, if accurate, shows that there is an implicit contradiction in it
(D) By pointing out that the advertiserтАЩs point of view is biased
(E) By arguing that the advertiser too narrowly restricts the discussion to the effects of advertising that are economic

implicit contradiction=implied reverse meaning. The consumer is structuring his argument around the advertising costs paid by the consumers to the companies who in turn advertise in the newspapers they read.

C stands.

I think the key is "plausibility" (plausible means persuasive but deceptive) and "allege" ( allege means declare without proof) in A.
Back to the argument between advertiser and customer: OF COURSE, the purpose of the advertiser to be call for customer's supporting toward Advertisement by seemingly deceptively convinces that the price of copy will be lower and the customers would benefit.

* Advertiser

- Evidence: advertisements keep the magazine price low
- Conclusion: consumers benefit from advertisements

* Consumer

- Evidencce1: advertisements keep the magazine price low
- Evidence2: consumers pay for the advertisements
- Conclusion: consumers do not benefir from advertisements

Consumer's Evidence1 and Conclusion are not explicitly stated, but implied.

(It is true that advertisements keep the magazine price low, but actually it is consumers that pay for the advertisements, and so consumers do not receive benefit from advertisements)

(A) Yeah, consumer alleges something (=evidence2) that would weaken the advertiser's conclusion

(C) By offering an interpretation of the advertiser’s opening statement that, if accurate, shows that there is an implicit contradiction in it
>> Consumer does not re-interpreate advertiser's Evidence1. Instead, consumer gives another evidence (evidence2)
