I hate this one in particular:

Advertisement: The world's best coffee beans come from Colombia. THe more Colombian beans in a blend of cofee, the better the blend, and no company purchases more Colombian beans thatn Kreemo Coffee, INc. So it only stands to reason that if you buy a can of Kreemo's cofee, you're buying the best blended coffee available today.

The reasoning of the argument in the advertisment is flawed because it overlooks the possibility that

a) the equipment used by KReemo to blend and package its coffee is no different from that used by most other coffee producers.

b) Not all of Kreemo's competitors use COlombian coffee beans in the blends of coffee they sell.

c) Kreemo sells more coffee than does any other company.

d) Kreemo's coffee is the most expensive blanded coffee available today.

e) The best unblended coffee is better than the best blended coffee.

It is C. standing with the information given in the argument if kreemo sells more coffee than does any other company, it cannot be gurantee that it sells best blend of coffee. it is more clear with a qt example.

coffee sale for kreemo = 1000 kg
columbian coffee purchased by kreemo = 200 kg
non-columbian coffee purchased by kreemo = 800 kg
the blend = columbian:non-columbian = 1:4

coffee sale for x company = 600 kg
columbian coffee purchased by x = 150 kg
non-columbian coffee purchased by x = 450 kg
the blend = columbian:non-columbian = 1:3

this example confirms that the more coffee purchased by kreemo doesnot gurantee that kremmo has best blends of columbian coffee.

C.

Kremo buys more columbian coffee but we don't know how much columbian coffee it uses in its blend per pound.

C recognizes the flaw.

(C). They could be "watering down" their blends of Colombian gold.
