Key thing here is to identify the groups of people choices A and C are referring to. A talks about "men and women" who are referred as adults whereas C talks about people (adults or juveniles) in general.

And choice A straight away contradicts the premise given in the argument and would not help solve the discrepancy.

Can someone please explain why E is incorret here?

I understood that the sale of beer increased but how does E explain that the # of adults drinking beer decreased.

Also, can someone elaborate on why C is incorrect because C says that the # of non-drinkers who started drinking is more than the # of drinkers who quit drinking.


Answer "E" basically says that more is exported meaning that if more of the produced beer was exported then the consumption of beer in the US declined and that weakens the argument.

Let us handle it this way,

The question, which could explain the simultaneous increase in beer sales and decrease in the number of adults who drink beer EXCEPT

D: The people who have continued to drink beer consume more beer per person than they have in the past.---This explains the question. So not our answer

Now if you could see, A and C are close in reason with a minor difference.
C: During this year, the number of nondrinkers who have begun to drink beer is greater than the number of people who have quit drinking beer.----This says as in whole numbers. Let the total number of past drinkers be 100. If more non drinkers joined the club(say 100) and less drinkers left(say 50). Now sum up the new total... it will be 150... it states there is an increase in number... This is not surely our answer..

A: During this year, the number of women who have begun to drink beer is greater than the number of men who have quit drinking beer.----Here we are not given with the number of women who quit drinking... Unless we know that we cannot deciper the cause needed... So this does not explain the incr in profit and decrease in number of adult... making this our answer....

If the number of women drinking beer is greater than the number of men who drink beer then this does not explain the reason for the decrease in number of adults drinking beer and simulteneous increase in beer sells.

I chose C, and I'm not convinced that the hinge to distinguish between A & C is the assumption that "Women" and "Men" mentioned in option A are supposed to be adults while "non-drinkers" and "people" mentioned in C could be mistaken for non-adults.

Who's to say that Women and Men in (A) are adults?


Same here. can anyone explain it?
