A. Radio advertising is the most important factor in political campaigns in Los Angeles.>> argument only says that R advertising will get maximum name recognition...and not "max name recognition compared to all other media"..OUT
B. Maximum name recognition in Los Angeles will help a candidate to win a higher percentage of votes cast in the city...>> Voting may or may not depend on recognition..we never know. OUT
C. Saturation radio advertising reaches every demographically distinct sector of the voting population of Los Angeles. >> yes, for max recognition max coverage is must..if coverage is less and still name recognition is more then saturation R adv has no effect...so the conclusion falls apart
D. For maximum name recognition a candidate need not spend on media channels other than radio advertising. >> Too extreme...we do not know about OTHER channels. OUT
E. A candidate's record of achievement in the Los Angeles area will do little to affect his or her name recognition there. >> Big assumption, not in scope. OUT

D it is.
Since maximum name recognition is claimed by saturation radio station, it is safe to say that no other media helps with name recognition as much as this radio station does. So, one needn't spend money on other sources for max. name recognition.

Here the stem is discussing the effectiveness of saturation radio ad not all radio ad.
Hence I eliminate D and choose C.

OA is D ...This question is from Kaplan premier...

since saturation radio guarantees a maximum name recognization.....a political candidate need not look in other advertising forms like media channel

IMO D

conclusion: saturation radio advertising ---> will get maximum name recognition.

We're looking for an answer that is true using the above conclusion.

A. Radio advertising is the most important factor in political campaigns in Los Angeles.

this question is out of scope since the stimulus does not reference important factors.

B. Maximum name recognition in Los Angeles will help a candidate to win a higher percentage of votes cast in the city.

again out of topic scope since nothing in the stimulus talks about percentage of votes.

C. Saturation radio advertising reaches every demographically distinct sector of the voting population of Los Angeles.
this is the first contender. The problem with this one is bold portion. Does the radio need to reach every demographically distinct sector for the candidate to get maximum recognition? no.

with the information in the stimulus, is it true that the radio reaches every demographically distinct sector of the voting population of Los Angeles? no

D. For maximum name recognition a candidate need not spend on media channels other than radio advertising.

I think this is the correct answer choice. Here we're saying that a candidate can get maximum recognition just using radio advertising.
Exactly what the stimulus says.


E. A candidate's record of achievement in the Los Angeles area will do little to affect his or her name recognition there.

out of scope since the candidate's record of achievement is not discussed in the stimulus

Thanks for the explanations...I was confused between C and D.
I marked C because, we can not comment on other channels as nothing is given in the argument.
Generally, More coverage means more recognition.

OA is D
