great explanation technext. +1 from me.

I am also not convinced abt the logic of B.

Can anyone pls explain?

Consider this part of the stimulus: "..over half of all automobiles built by the company since 1970 are still on the road today, compared to no more than a third for any other manufacturer."

Say, since 1970 the company was producing 10,000 cars per year. Due to some big investment it annual production became 2,00,000 since 2005. Assuming, people keep their cars for at least 5-6 years, you can very well see that how the quoted part of the stimulus will be proved true, even if most of the cars produced before 2005 were scrapped! (you can easily figure it out by doing simple maths)

Therefore, unless B is true, company's reasoning will be rendered absurd.
B has to be true in order to strengthen the argument.

Hope this helps..

this to me is a totally bogus question, none of these are right. the OA is in fact b, but it makes no sense. how does the number of cars built in each year after 1970 have anything whatsoever to do with the durability of the car and the fact that half of the cars produced before 1970 are on the road today? after a car is sold, what happens to other cars is in no way relevant to proving that that first car is durable. bogus question. can some EXPERT provide some clarity here or else i'll just assume this is one of the few times a GMAC question is bogus
