Investing in real estate would be a profitable venture at this time. A survey in House magazine revealed that 85% of the magazine’s readers are planning to buy a second home over the next few years. A study of the real estate industry, however, revealed that the current supply of homes could only provide for 65% of that demand each year.


9. Which of the following, if true, would undermine the validity of the investment advice in the paragraph above?
(A) Some home owners are satisfied with only one home.
(B) About half of the people who buy homes are investing in their first home.
(C) About half of the people who buy homes have to take out a mortgage to do so.
(D) Only a quarter of the homes that are built are sold within the first two weeks.
(E) Only a quarter of those who claim that they want a second home actually end up purchasing one.

If only a quarter of the 85% actually do purchase homes, then the supply far outstrips the demand, and it wouldnt be wise to invest in real estate.

i'm not sure what you mean. How is it a bad investment, if you buy something that is not easily available in the market, but is in great demand?
