Rightly so :

This seems like a tricky SC to me. Since in the comprehension & subsequent answers there is insinuation towards choosing answers C or D. Thats what supports the RC passage most.

But that seems to be a trap. Since statement E if you compare C, D & E. E provides the most low profile, however better justification to profits.

They Key is Profits "Substantially higher". Since sales of number of models remained the same & prices didn't go up. The only thing that could have led to substantially higher profits is "Low Production Cost".

Why not C & D. This is where the argument C & D fail. Since they talk about most plausible reasons over a false impression. Which is stated at the start of the paragraph. Which is "PXC's first time buyer give comparatively lower profits then PXC second time". However it doesn't qualitatively tell us how much more. if these are not more and we sold the same amount of PXC's with similar profit margins, profits cannot be significantly higher.

Let me know if the explanation helps?

Even I got trapped with 'D' . Reason first time buyers - low profit, replacable computer high margin. with profit margin and nmbr of sales same. if number of first time buyers are low, it would indicate higher nmbr of replacable pc sales. hence high profit margin. it does explain but i overlooked significantly higher word..

'E' seems clear now. overall low production cost will increase the profit margin irrespective

Remember, this is a must be true type of question.

You cant add anything more (new info) to the context. In E, we have low cost of production, which is nowhere stated in the stimulus.

Rather it is trap.
