Because of the recent recession in Country A most magazines published there have experienced decreases in advertising revenue, so much so that the survival of the most widely read magazines is in grave doubt. At the same time, however, more people in Country A are reading more magazines than ever before, and the number of financially successful magazines in Country A is greater than ever.

Which one of the following, if true, most helps to resole the apparent discrepancy in the information above?

(A) Most magazines reduce the amount they charge for advertisement’s during a recession.

(B) The audience for a successful television show far exceeds the readership of even the most widely read magazine.

(C) Advertising is the main source of revenue only for the most widely read magazines; other magazines rely on circulation for their revenue.

(D) Because of the recession, people in Country A have cut back on magazine subscriptions and are reading borrowed magazines.

(E) More of the new general interest magazines that were launched this year in Country A have survived than survived in previous years.

C.

C says that the other mags rely on circulation for their revenue--> explains why the number of mags with good financial health has increased.
