Nearly one in three subscribers to Financial Forecaster is a millionaire, and over half are in top management.ANALYZE THE QUESTION STEM:
Shouldn’t you subscribe to Financial Forecaster now?A reader who is neither a millionaire nor in top management would be most likely to act in accordance with the advertisement’s suggestion if he or she drew which of the following questionable conclusions invited by the advertisement?
A. Among finance-related periodicals. Financial Forecaster provides the most detailed financial information.
B. Top managers cannot do their jobs properly without reading Financial Forecaster.
C. The advertisement is placed where those who will be likely to read it are millionaires.
D. The subscribers mentioned were helped to become millionaires or join top management by reading Financial Forecaster.
E. Only those who will in fact become millionaires, or at least top managers, will read the advertisement.
The most difficult part of this question is the "question stem". I would paraphrase it like:
A reader who is neither a millionaire nor in top management would be most likely to act in accordance with the advertisement’s suggestion
if he or she believes that....?
But What is "act in accordance with the advertisement suggestion"
. It means "you should subscribe FF now"
==> The question stem will be: A reader who is neither a millionaire nor in top management would subscribe FF if he or she believes that....ANALYZE THE STIMULUS:
The advertisement' FACT: 1/3 subscribers
to FF are millionaires, and over 1/2 are in top management.
The advertisement's CONCLUSION: You should subscribe to FF now
Because the advertisement used the word "subscribers
" in order to make a new reader believes that "he/she will be a millionaire or top management IF he/she reads FF".
This is exactly what a new reader believes, ==> so he/she would subscribe FF.
Hence, D is correct.
Hope that helps.
