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.
Daily Bugle is owned by an out-of-town business syndicat. But 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. _________________
Only D somewhat the argument by mentioning that the editors and staff have been in the town for 10 yrs.
Still it doesn't mean that they care about the local people
"To dream anything that you want to dream, that is the beauty of the human mind. To do anything that you want to do, that is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself, to test your limits, that is the courage to succeed."
I also picked B on this... Can some one explain whY B was wrong?
D does not say anything about caring of people.. The editors might have lived any of the ten years... It does not say the last 10 years.. it just says 10 years.. They could have lived before they were editors.. and now they are editors but live outside..
The author argues that since the newspaper is owned by a out of town business it doesnot care for the town. But D says that the editor and the editorial staff are based in the town hence they understand the concerns of the town people and will address them throught the paper
