Simon observed that Internet users tend to recall best the first advertisement that they see when they get on the Internet and that they largely ignore other ads. Theodore responded by saying that Internet advertising is losing effectiveness because the ability of Internet users to recall the ads they see while using the Internet is decreasing.

Which answer choice could synthesize these two assertions?

A) The average time an Internet user spends on line is increasing.

B) People are increasingly less likely to click through ads.

C) The average number of hours per day that people spend on the Internet is decreasing.

D) A few sites get nearly all Internet traffic.

E) Studies show that when listening to a speaker, people remember the first and last things they hear most clearly.

A

If people can't remember the ads then it certainly means that they are spending more time on the internet.

A stands.
The more time the user spends on the internet------> more the ads that he sees------->less is the retention.

Will go with A.

If users can only recall the first ad they see when they get online and ignore the rest, then if people spend more time on the internet the effectiveness of the ad decreases.
