Mourdet Winery: Danville Winery's new wine was introduced to compete with our most popular wine, which is sold in a distinctive tall, black bottle. Danville uses a similar bottle. Thus, it is likely that many customers intending to buy our wine will mistakenly buy theirs instead.

Danville Winery: Not so. The two bottles can be readily distinguished: the label on ours, but not on theirs, is gold colored.

Which of the following, if true, most undermines Danville Winery's response?

(A) Gold is the background color on the label of many of the wines produced by Danville Winery.
(B) When the bottles are viewed side by side, Danville Winery's bottle is perceptibly taller than Mourdet Winery's.
(C) Danville Winery, unlike Mourdet Winery, displays its wine's label prominently in advertisements.
(D) It is common for occasional purchasers to buy a bottle of wine on the basis of a general impression of the most obvious feature of the bottle.
(E) Many popular wines are sold in bottles of a standard design.

(E) Many popular wines are sold in bottles of a standard design.


D is the answer. The statement says the wine is sold in distinctive tall, black bottle. Answer D says purchasers will buy on the basis of the impression of the most obvious feature of the bottle which links back to tall, black bottle. The Gold label is not the obvious feature here. Therefore, D weakens Danville Winery's response.

Answer A kind of strengthen the Danville Winery's response.
Answer B can not weaken Danville Winery's response because DW's response is about the gold label.
Answer C is irrelevant to the question.
Answer E is irrelevant because we are talking about distinctive design here.

isn't there a difference between many customers and occasional purchasers ??
though any other option doesn't fit.

Danville Winery's response: The two bottles can be readily distinguished.
D says that the occasional buyers generally buy bottles on the basis of most obvious feature of the bottle. These .buyers, going per the stimulus, will focus on the general features the bottle has and not on the gold sticker that this bottle carries.
Hence D undermines Danny Winery's response that the two bottles can be readily distinguished.

Hi ConnectTheDots,

Yes, there is a difference between "many customers" and "occasional purchasers", this means that (D) is not undermining Danville's response greatly; however it does undermine the Winery's response. Other answer choices do not undermine the response.

If it is common for occasional purchasers to buy a wine base on bottles most prominent characteristic, then some people would ignore the gold label on the bottle, thus, undermining Danville's response.

Hope this helps,

Vercules
