Option E actually strengthens the appeal of Evergreen Gum. The other choices might cause prospective customers to think twice.

What is the OA?

I thought that D would be a good choice too, but the fact that the bubble gum costs twice just undermines the argument.

If:
1) Evergreen has twice the volume of the Spring

and

2) Evergreen costs twice as much as Spring

then

they have the same value for the money
IMO, E
