Editorial: It is clear that if this country’s universities were living up to both their moral and their intellectual responsibilities, the best-selling publications in most university bookstores would not be frivolous ones like TV Today and Gossip Review. However, in most university bookstores the only publication that sells better than Gossip Review is TV Today.
If the statements in the editorial are true, which one of the following must also be true on the basis of them?
(A) People who purchase publications that are devoted primarily to gossip or to television programming are intellectually irresponsible.
(B) It is irresponsible for university bookstores to carry publications such as Gossip Review and TV Today.
(C) Most people who purchase publications at university bookstores purchase either TV Today or Gossip Review.
(D) Many people who attend this country’s universities fail to live up to both their moral and their intellectual responsibilities.
(E) At least some of this country’s universities are not meeting their moral responsibilities or their intellectual responsibilities or both.

E: Most univ bookstores are selling gossip and tv mags. if univs were moral and intellectual they would not be selling this stuff. They are selling this stuff. Most of the univs are selling this - so it is safe to say that at least some (if not all) the univs are not moral and responsible.

Ill go for E

in most university bookstores the only publication that sells better than Gossip Review is TV Today.
is telling about universities and not about people. These might be possiblity that univercities not in above catagories have max number of people buying non Gossip/ TV today

totally agree with E. the argument is about country's universities and not people.
