A Hobart Cola is a subsidiary of Trendy Cola
Out of scope
B Mary is an unimportant employee of Hobart Cola
Peter may feel that Mary is an unimportant enployee but the last part is there to confuse us

C all Cola drinks taste pretty much alike
Out of scope

D an executive uses only that company’s products
How can Mary be an important employee when she drinks cola of a different company.

E Hobart is a better-tasting cola than Trendy
Out of scope

the best answer is D. Peter assumes that if Mary works in Trendy cola copany, she will drink only the cola from her company and not from anyother. This means, an employee who works for Coco-cola will drink only coco-cola and not pepsi. The other statements are irrelavent to the subject.
