Are you still reading the other newspaper in town? Did you know that the Daily Bugle is owned by an out-of-town business syndicate that couldnâ€™t care less about the people of Gotham City? Read the Daily Clarion, the only real voice of the people of Gotham City!
Which of the following most directly refutes the argument raised in the advertisement above?
(A) Over half of the advertising revenues of the Daily Clarion come from firms whose headquarters are located outside of Gotham City.
(B) The Daily Clarion usually devotes more of its pages to out-of-town news than does the Daily Bugle.
(C) Nearly 40 percent of the readers of the Daily Clarion reside outside the limits of Gotham City.
(D) The editor-in-chief and all the other members of the editorial staff of the Daily Bugle have lived and worked in Gotham City for ten years or more.
(E) The Daily Bugle has been published in Gotham City for a longer time than has the Daily Clarion.
I am getting too many wrongs and the OAs are totally unconvincing..not even going to bother to argue.....I will anyway choose what i think is correct...
The argument is about the newspaper company being owned by people outside of Gotham. Since these people don't live in Gotham, their newspaper wouldn't be the real voice of the people in Gotham.
D directly attacks this argument by saying although the company may not be based in Gotham, their editors all live in Gothan, so it's not true to say The Daily Bugle is not the voice of the poeple in Gotham.
