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."

Hi nervousgmat...the argument says
1) The labeling of otherwise high-calorie foods as "sugar-free"
2) Many consumers...interpret the label â€œsugar-freeâ€

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.

D it is

(D) Product labels that are literally correct (sugar free) but will predictably be misinterpreted (low in calories) by some buyers of the product to their own [u]harm (building weight-loss diets around foods labeled â€œsugar-freeâ€
