I will go with A.

3 out of 7 people seems to require plural tax returns. A disk sounds out of place, but again, it might imply a type of disk.

A hard question. My pick A

'tax returns' makes choice between A, C and D
'an accounting text' is too restrictive.

A for me.

We need "tax returns" so B also ruled out.

C, D, E are ruled out coz of "in a software store and an accounting text" --> this implies that the disk is found in a particular software store / accounting text.

Narrows down choice to A or B

My choice (B).

"tax returns" in (A) is ambiguous - also suggests that the people will file more than one tax return. Hence by POE, answer is (B)

Caas, do you have the OA?

this is B..

here 3 out of severn people will file A tax RETURN with A disk found in stores

I wrote the key phrases in Capital letters.

B) sets it out right that 3 out of seven will file A tax (we need singular) with A (again singular) DISK ..suggesting 1 tax file per disk...

other choices distort the meaning, suggesting that you may need several disks to file tax return...other choices suggest that you will file many tax returns with 1 disk..etc..

B is best in my opinion

(B)

Each person file one tax return, so, I think, 'a tax return' and 'a disk' are right.

E suggests that you can find this DISK in only ONE UNIQUE SOFTWARE STORE...however that is not the intent of the original sentence..you can find this disk at several software stores ..hope this clarifies
