Traditionally, candidates for elected offices have concentrated their efforts on the early stages of the campaign during which, most people believed, the voters' perceptions of candidates were formed. It is now becoming clear, however, that elections can be decided in the few days preceding election day; public opinion polls taken during recent elections provide evidence of several such races. In those cases, the losing candidates would have been well advised to have forgone early spending and instead saved funds for television advertisements late in their campaign.

The conclusion above assumes that which of the following is true?

(A) No candidate for elected office can mount a successful campaign without allocating a large portion of campaign funds to television advertising.
(B) The losing candidates described would have won their respective campaigns had they not spent as heavily in the early stages of those campaigns.
(C) The winning candidates described accrued more funds throughout their campaigns than did the losing candidates.
(D) Candidates who spend a large amount of their campaign funds on television advertising are more successful than those who spend the same amount on print advertising.
(E) The losing candidates described would not have eliminated their chances of winning by spending less in the early stages of their campaigns.

OA is (E)

I don't understand the last line of the stems. Does it mean the person who lost because that person spent less in the early and more in the later?

I got B, not E.
Can anyone weigh in?

A. No. The argument says nothing about this.

B. No. No distinction is made between generations of politicians.

C. No. We can only infer that these opinions may change over time.

D. Yes. If elections can be won at the last minute, then polls aren't necessarily accurate.

E. No. The argument is about the timing of campaign spending, not about "defining the issues."


I still don't get the meaning of the argument! What does this argument mean?
