### HideShow timer Statistics

The Nordlingen WE luxury sports car uses a special imported rosewood in the extensive wood trimming of its interior. Unfortunately, trade sanctions imposed on the nation that is the primary supplier of that type of rosewood has resulted in a considerable increase in the price of the now extremely rare commodity. Purchasers of the new models of the Nordlingen WE can expect to see that increase reflected in an increase in Nordlingen's ticket price.

The conclusion above is based on the assumption that...

A) The price of the Nordlingen WE would not have risen even if the trade sanctions hadn't been imposed on the primary supplier of Nordlingen's rosewood.
B) The price of the rosewood is a major contributing factor to the Nordlingen WE's ticket price.
C) More of the imported rosewood is used for the Nordlingen WE's wood trim than for any other domestic purpose.
D) The imported rosewood will continue to be used for the wood trim in the new models of the Nordlingen WE.
E) There was not some reason for the imposition of the trade sanctions on the primary supplier of the rosewood of sufficient importance to outweigh the concerns of the domestic rosewood consumers.

"D". For the price to increase, wood has to be used and then its price has to increase. D tells us that author assumed that even in new models this wood be used.

The conclusion here is the last statement:
"Purchasers of the new models of the Nordlingen WE can expect to see that increase reflected in an increase in Nordlingen's ticket price".

It cannot be 'C' becos the conclusion is concerned about the increase in price & not about the usage of imported rosewood, so it is 'D'

Why can't the answer be (b)?Cost of internal trims could be a major contributor towards the vehicle cost right?Any thoughts.Tx.

(D)

(B) is not right because the author only said that the car price will reflect the increase in rosewood price. It doesn't have to be a major factor, as long as it is in the equation.

D makes the most sense- if the wood is elminated from the car, the changes in the price of the wood should not affect the price of the car.

Shouldn't it be trade sanctions . . . have?
