The Financial Times Magazine devoted two
pages to the stock market crash of 1929;
however, the same magazine covered 1985’s
Black Monday with 25 pages.

The best explanation for this
difference is that
A. the crash of 1929 was viewed as
more important than Black
Monday.
B. the Financial Times Magazine
regretted their underreporting of
the 1929 crash and did not wish
to make the same mistake.
C. the implications of the 1929
crash were more immediately
apparent.
D. the size of the magazine had
increased so editors could devote
more space to the 1985 story.
E. the press in 1929 devoted more
time to covering stories about
successes instead of failures.

D makes sense, but so does E. How can you rule it out ?

And where is this question from ?

rule out E because it talks about time, not about space in article

Why is everyone jumping for D? I mean why is the assumption of size of the magazine a better answer than the assumption of regret stated in B? Perhaps the size of the magazine stayed the same and the increase in reporting was indeed due to avoid making the same mistake as the editors previously made in 1929. On the flip side, perhaps the size did increase. We don't know. The passage doesn't offer clear support to either answer. Its one of those ambiguous answers that everyone hates.

What the OA & OE?

Bad question to study from, subjectivity is not properly eliminated.

I would go with D, as the others try to assume too much and are not as objective, although I have to say this is a horrendously formulated CR.
