Radio stations with radio data system (RDS) technology broadcast special program information that only radios with an RDS feature can receive. Between 1994 and 1996, the number of RDS radio stations in Verdland increased from 250 to 600. However, since the number of RDS-equipped radios in Verdland was about the same in 1996 as in 1994, the number of Verlanders receiving the special program information probably did not increase significantly. Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?

A. Few if any of the RDS radio stations that began broadcasting in Verdland after 1994 broadcast to people with RDS-equipped radios living in areas not previously reached by RDS stations.
B. In 1996 most Verdlanders who lived within the listening area of an RDS station already had a radio equipped to receive RDS.
C. Equipping a radio station with RDS technology does not decrease the station's listening area.
D. In 1996 Verlanders who did not own radios equipped to receive RDS could not receive any programming from the RDS radio stations that began broadcasting in Verdland after 1994.
E. The RDS radio stations in Verdland in 1996 did not all offer the same type of programming.

Help with this one....
We are talking about the number of people recieving the new data.
Since there are more stations that transmit it now, the number of people receiveing it (
if people have not decreased) should be more...
Thoughts?

I reached A by POE but I don't really get the logic here, would some expert kindly explain this one?

Thanks!

OK I dunno if this is best practice in GMAT Club but I will try to respond to myself (Do I still get a Kudos for this?)

Thing is that radio stations have increased in number and we know that the RDS equipped radios have not done so comparably, therefore the stimulus basically implies that there is not an increase in the number of people receiving this special program information. Now what A tells us is that previously there could have been some people that had RDS equipment but in a time when stations did not reach their locations. Thus, if this were true then the argument would be weakened cause actually the number of listeners will not be higher. Therefore A stands as the correct answer

Hope it helps
Cheers
