Many residents of Calovia are committed to using products containing recycled materials. Soon these consumers will get help in identifying such products from a book being published by the Calovian government. The book offers a comprehensive listing, by product type and brand, of goods sold in Calovia that contain recycled material. Therefore, publication of the book will almost certainly increase the use of products containing recycled materials in Calovia.

Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument?

A. Proceeds from the sale of the book are not expected to exceed the cost of its publication.
B. For numerous types of products, there are many brands that use recycled materials, although their manufacturers and distributors do nothing to advertise those brandsâ€™ recycled content.
C. For many materials, such as plastics, the recycling process results in a lower grade of material with a correspondingly different range of uses.
D. For many types of products listed in the book, all the brands available in Calovia use recycled materials.
E. Many manufacturers of products that contain recycled materials vary the proportion of recycled materials in those products in response to changes in price and availability.

'D'

All the brands are available for purchase in Calovia, therefore publication of the book certainly increase use of products containing recycled materials.

I think D only repeats what is said in the argument. That is why i omitted it...

Actually I would say that D is wrong, but doesn't say what is already in the passage.

Say you have a plastic baggies that are made from recycled materials. What D says is that if plastic baggies are listed in the book, then every "brand" of plastic baggies is made from recycled materials. This is not what the passage is saying, and if it were true, the book wouldn't matter at all because for every product in it, there would be no non-recycled alternative, so sales of products with recycled materials couldn't increase.

I also say B is correct. Once people know that these companies use recycled materials, they will then begin to purchase them more than others.

B.
There is a dispairity in what is actually recycled and what the people know is recycled. Therefore, there is the possibility for more recycled goods to be bought.

D actually weakens the argument. If for many products all their brands are recycled products, there is no room for the increase of recycled products.
