A and C.

15. The consumer advocate and the manufacturer would disagree on whether in the absense of gov standards, common understanding is the arbiter of deceptive labeling practices. While the consumer advocate would state that the inexistence of official standards allows unescrupulous manufacturers to use any -deceptive- label that could prompt sales, the manufacturer would argue that as long as the label can evoque some meaning it's okay to use it.

16. The manufacturer would be best defended by "People should be free to the extent that it is legal to do so, to exploit to their advantages the inherent ambiguity and vagueness in language". It's very close to her/his own statement.
