Conclusion: Production should be increased
Premise: Total telephone sales of telephones (NOT MAMMOTH INDUSTRIES) have increased.
Be careful to notice info about the telephone sales of the industry as a whole
is given. If we can show that Mammoth Industry is an exception. has not increased its sale inspite of industry wide increase, we can weaken the argument and explain why plan (increasing production)should not be undertaken.
A: Tells us that inventory of Mammoth Ind is 0 thereby implying that Mammoth sold most of its inventory. Therefore it strongly srengthens why the plan to increase production should be undertaken.
B. Also strengthens by saying that avg inventory declined
C. Not related/Out of scope
D: Strengthens againE: Weakens. Tells us that although the telephone industry sales have increased, Mammoth Industry was an exception whose sale did not increase.
Hope this helps!!!
