Mechanicorp’s newest product costs so little to make that it appears doubtful the company will be able to sell it without increasing the markup the company usually allows modest profit margins.
The statements above, if true, most strongly support which of the following?
(A) Mechanicorp will encounter difficulties in trying to set a price for its newest product that will promote sales without threatening to compromise the company’s reputation.
(B) Mechanicorp achieves large for profit: potential clients would simply not believe that something so inexpensive would really work. Yet Mechanicorp’s reputation is built on fair prices incorporating only annual profits, despite small profits per unit sold, by means of a high volume of sales.
(C) Mechanicorp made a significant computational error in calculating the production costs for its newest product.
(D) Mechanicorp’s newest product is intended to perform tasks that can be performed by other devices costing less to manufacture.
(E) Mechanicorp’s production processes are designed with the same ingenuity as are the products that the company makes.

I'd choose B cus the passage implies that the price would increase.

I think it should be A....because the passage mentions "it appears doubtful the company will be able to sell it "

A supports that
"Mechanicorp will encounter difficulties in trying to set a price for its newest product that will promote sales without threatening to compromise the company’s reputation. "

would go for A.....B seems to weaken it...I must admit that argument was not clear me as I believe there are some typo or other mistakes which are making it tough to understand..

The highlighted words made me to go for A instead of B.
