58. Even though most universities retain the royalities from faculty member's inventions, the faculty members retain the royalties from books and articles they write. Therefore, faculty members should retain the royalties from the educational computer software they develop.
The conclusion above would be more reasonably drawn if which of the following were inserted into the argument as an additional premise?
A. Royalities from inventions are higher than royalties from educational software programs. B. Faculty members are more likely to produce educational software programs than inventions. C. Inventions being more prestige to universities than do books are articles. D. In the experience of most universities, educational software programs are more marketable than are books are articles. E. In terms of the criteria used to award royalties, educational software programs are more nearly comparable to books and articles than to inventions.
I firstly choose D and got wrong, then I look up the answers and confused that are invention, books and software separate things? Or invention is books and software, if so, why is E? if they are separate stuff, I understand, you don't need to explain me. Thank u~~

Universities retain royalty from inventions, faculty retain royalty from books, articles ==> X ==> Faculty should retain royalty from educational computer software.
X has to tell us something about the connection between the first and last statement. So X should tell us that :to retain royalty educational computer software should not be treated as an invention or it should be treated as a book or article
Option E fits the bill perfectly in this case
