Ernesto: Sales of VCR's—videocassette recorders—will decline in the next few years because the saturation level among U.S. households has virtually been reached.
Milton: Every year a greater number of popular feature films is released on cassette—at least 6 per month. Clearly VCR sales will remain constant, if not rise.
Which of the following is the best logical evaluation of Milton's response to Ernesto's argument?
He cites evidence that, if true, disproves the evidence cited by Ernesto in drawing his conclusion.
He points out a gap in the logic followed by Ernesto in drawing his conclusion.
He cites an issue ignored by Ernesto and which outweighs the issues raised by Ernesto.
He does not speak to Ernesto's point because he fails to raise the issue of whether VCR sales may be linked to sales of other leisure-related products.
He fails to respond to Ernesto's argument because he assumes that nothing will significantly retard the sale of VCR's, which was the issue that Ernesto raised.
