Sales campaigns aimed at the faltering personal computer market have strongly emphasized ease of use, called user-friendliness. This emphasis is oddly premature and irrelevant in the eyes of most potential buyers, who are trying to address the logically prior issue of whether______
(A) user-friendliness also implies that owners can service their own computers
(B) personal computers cost more the more user-friendly they are
(C) currently available models are user-friendly enough to suit them
(D) the people promoting personal computers use them in their own homes
(E) they have enough sensible uses for a personal computer to justify the expense of buying one..


Can Somebody post the answer for this question with the explanation?. Also let me know how to identify the best conclusion from the list of options or how to approach these questions?.

"address the logically prior issue" : This statement asserts that before looking at the "user friendliness" aspect. there is something more important..!!

a) This statement is not logically prior to the issue of "user friendliness".
b) Out of scope: No discussion regarding prices.
d) Doesn't matter, and out of scope

C) is very close, but again before analyzing a feature ("user friendliness") of product, the prior question is the requirement..!! Is the product really required..??

E is the answer.
