Crunch-o cookies have twice as much flavor for your money as Choc-o cookies, and we show you how. A single Crunch-o cookie is twice as large as a single Choc-o cookie, and the larger the cookie, the more the flavor.
Which of the following, if true, would undermine the persuasive appeal of the above advertisement?
(I) A packet of Choc-o contains twice as many cookies as a packet of Crunch-o at the same price.
(II) Choc-o has more concentrated flavor than Crunch-o.
(III) Despite being double in size a Crunch-o cookie weighs only 50% as much as a Choc-o Cookie.

(A) I only
(B) II only
(C) I and II only
(D) II and III only
(E) I, II and III

I would opt for B. The appeal says that larger the cookie the more flavour it has.

Crunch-o cookies have twice as much flavor for your money as Choc-o cookies, and we show you how. A single Crunch-o cookie is twice as large as a single Choc-o cookie, and the larger the cookie, the more the flavor.
Which of the following, if true, would undermine the persuasive appeal of the above advertisement?
(I) A packet of Choc-o contains twice as many cookies as a packet of Crunch-o at the same price.
Appeal does not mention about the quantity of the cookie present in the size. Its just states that larger the size more the flavour.

(II) Choc-o has more concentrated flavor than Crunch-o.
This is the obvious choice

(III) Despite being double in size a Crunch-o cookie weighs only 50% as much as a Choc-o Cookie.
Again the appeal does not mention anything about the weight so this is out of scope.

Whats the OA?

The Explanation given is like (source- crackgmat):
Put in other words, the question implies, 'which of the following, if true, work against the claims of the advertisement?'
If statement I is correct, Choc-o has more value for money then Crunch-o.
If statement II is correct, then Choc-o also has more flavor, because concentration of the flavor is a more important factor than the size of the cookie.
Finally, volume of the cookie is not the criterion on which the flavor is based, it is the mass (or weight).
Thus, each of the three statements detract from the appeal of the above advertisement.
Hence (E) is the correct answer.

I AM REALLY CONFUSED WITH THIS EXPLANATION. CAN ANYONE HELP?

The larger the cookie, the more the flavor. I go with D as it supports density and concentration.

I would've said C: I and II only.
The argument is for size and more flavor, henceforth. Mass and volume would be an assumption, because we have no idea if the flavor is coming from one ingredient or many ingredients.

I think B. II only

Quote:
(I) A packet of Choc-o contains twice as many cookies as a packet of Crunch-o at the same price.
Number of cookies in a pack doesn't affect the flavor. If you eat an entire pack yes, but it is assumed you are eating just one cookie. (?) (I am not 100% sold on this one though.)

Quote:
(II) Choc-o has more concentrated flavor than Crunch-o.
The flavor of Choc-o is stronger than the other.

Quote:
(III) Despite being double in size a Crunch-o cookie weighs only 50% as much as a Choc-o Cookie.
Weight doesn't really matter in terms of flavor. A heavier marshmallow is not always better than a lighter fluffier one.

B for me. (II)

I and III are refering to the size of the packet and the weight of the cookie. However, argument is talking only about the size of the cookie and the flavor of the cookie.

I chose E based on real world point of view (which i'm not supposed to in GMAT???)
(I) A packet of Choc-o contains twice as many cookies as a packet of Crunch-o at the same price.
i get the same amount of flavor per packet, so I could end up buying either one
(II) Choc-o has more concentrated flavor than Crunch-o.
twice as large and twice as much flavor (crunch-o) vs more concentrated flavor of Choc-o
i might get the same amount of flavor from either packet
(III) Despite being double in size a Crunch-o cookie weighs only 50% as much as a Choc-o Cookie.
weight of crunch-o = weight of choc-o
either one is fine , same  per value
these are the rules I follow when doing groceries..what can I say?

the point is : I get the same bang for the bucks, as opposed to what the ad said
