### HideShow timer Statistics

15. The consistency of ice cream is adversely affected by even slight temperature changes in the freezer. To counteract this problem, manufacturers add stabilizers to ice cream. Unfortunately, stabilizers, though inexpensive, adversely affect flavor. Stabilizers are less needed if storage temperatures are very low. However, since energy costs are constantly going up, those costs constitute a strong incentive in favor of relatively high storage temperatures.

Which one of the following can be properly inferred from the passage?

(A) Even slight deviations from the proper consistency for ice cream sharply impair its flavor.
(B) Cost considerations favor sacrificing consistency over sacrificing flavor.
(C) It would not be cost effective to develop a new device to maintain the constancy of freezer temperatures.
(D) Stabilizers function well only at very low freezer temperatures.
(E) Very low, stable freezer temperatures allow for the best possible consistency and flavor of ice cream.

I vote for C.

E - stabilizers adversely affect flavour agreed, but just the lack of stabilizers cannot ensure good flavour ,and nowhere does the stem say that stabilizers provided consistency which is inferior to what can be got by low constant temps.(cos E say the "best"....)

C - the stem says that though we don't need Stabilizers at low temps, the cost of having low temps in prohibitive and hence gives an incentive to use stabilizers. Hence , investing in a device which would keep a constant temperature would not prevent them from using a cheap substitue to give ice creams the consistency( reduce electricity costs).Hence it is uneconomical.

It's between C and E.

E seems to add extreneous information thus i will eliminate E and pick C.
