vineetgupta,

E is incorrect because of the term "equally accurate interpretations." Sugar-free does not equate to "low-calorie", therefore E can't be right.

Choice D fixes this problem by incorporating the "correct but ... predictably ... misinterpreted."

Product labels that are literally correct but will predictably [ Manufacturers are well aware of this tendency] be misinterpreted by some buyers of the product to their own harm [harm themselves by building weight-loss ] should be prohibited by law.
