Most people who ride bicycles for pleasure do not ride until the warm weather of spring and summer arrives. Yet it is probably more effective to advertise bicycles earlier in the year. Most bicycles are purchased in the spring, but once shoppers are ready to shop for a bicycle, they usually have already decided which brand and model of bicycle they will purchase. By then it is generally too late to induce them to change their minds.

The main point of the argument is that
(A) bicycle advertisements are probably more effective if they appear before the arrival of warm spring weather
(B) most bicycle purchasers decide on the brand and model of bicycle that they will buy before beginning to shop for a bicycle
(C) more bicycles are purchased in the spring than at any other time of year
(D) in general, once a bicycle purchaser has decided which bicycle he or she intends to purchase, it is difficult to bring about a change in that decision
(E) spring and summer are the time of year in which bicycle riding as a leisure activity is most popular

A

I think that the conclusion is given by the word "yet"
"Yet it is probably more effective to advertise bicycles earlier in the year"
that's the only logical connector in all the problem...

The first sentence states a fact. The conclusion comes next and contrast the fact. The rest of passage tries to support the conclusion.
A states exactly what the conclusion is.
