Nutritionists have recommended that people eat more fiber. Advertisements for a new fiber-supplement pill state only that it contains “44 percent fiber”.

The advertising claim is misleading in its selection of information on which to focus if which one of the following is true?
(A) There are other products on the market that are advertised as providing fiber as a dietary supplement.
(B) Nutritionists base their recommendation on medical findings that dietary fiber protects against some kinds of cancer.
(C) It is possible to become addicted to some kinds of advertised pills, such as sleeping pills and painkillers.
(D) The label of the advertised product recommends taking 3 pills every day.
(E) The recommended daily intake of fiber is 20 to 30 grams, and the pill contains one-third gram.

E. the ad talks about the %, where as the requirement is in grams. so how much is 44%? 1 kg or 1 gram?

E.

44% is misleading because if E is true then you have to eat at least 60 pills. That's insane.

I go with E.
Two reasons. other choices are useless.
secondly E represents the flaw that it provides inadequate amount of fibre.

There is no comparison done here. So I dont think we need to worry about the other products.

(B) Nutritionists base their recommendation on medical findings that dietary fiber protects against some kinds of cancer.
(C) It is possible to become addicted to some kinds of advertised pills, such as sleeping pills and painkillers.
(D) The label of the advertised product recommends taking 3 pills every day.

All three are irrelevant to the information provided.

(E) The recommended daily intake of fiber is 20 to 30 grams, and the pill contains one-third gram.
