Stronger patent laws are needed to protect inventions from being pirated. With that protection, manufacturers would be encouraged to invest in the development of new products and technologies. Such investment frequently results in an increase in a manufacturer’s productivity.
Which of the following conclusions can most properly be drawn from the information above?

(A) Stronger patent laws tend to benefit financial institutions as well as manufacturers.
(B) Increased productivity in manufacturing is likely to be accompanied by the creation of more manufacturing jobs.
(C) Manufacturers will decrease investment in the development of new products and technologies unless there are stronger patent laws.
(D) The weakness of current patent laws has been a cause of economic recession.
(E) Stronger patent laws would stimulate improvements in productivity for many manufacturers.

I picked E! Why not C?

(E).

IMO (C) is wrong because arguments does not state that in the absence of stronger Patent law, productivity will decrease.

C is wrong for two reasons.
1. It uses extreme language manufacturers WILL.... and
2. It is a classical 180 distractor. It mistakes the cause/effect relationship.

E all the way.
