Following link explains it clearly. More importantly, it asserts the need to have 'common sense'. Check it out:

The contention is between only A and B .
B can be eliminated because it says the addidition of 20 items (20 is completely irrelevant and use to confuse the reader ) results in lower prices (sorry for the passive voice :) )but the fact is that the comparison is made only ater the addidition of some items ,the number does not matter .
A is completely logical !!

The prices of the very same items at the nearest ShopperKing supermarket were totaled and compared with the FoodBasket total.

Now option A says that "... low prices offered on the items that they purchase most often"
suppose there are 4 such items.. with my argument i can conseider tht those 4 items in Sking also cost same. If low here, then low there and vice versa

A can be the answer only by POE not logic, if I follow each statement of argument. Pls explain the ambiguity
