When choosing a digital camera, it is important to consider each model's design, options, and limitations. For the serious photographer interested in superior image quality, it is best to choose a camera that has fixed-length or interchangeable lenses. On the other hand, those who have neither the need nor the means to tote the bulky equipment may be satisfied with the compactness and portability of cameras that have folded-optic systems.

Which of the following can reasonably be concluded from the above statements?

A. Cameras with fixed length lenses are too bulky for anyone but the professional photographer
B. Serious photographers are concerned primarily with superior image quality.
C. Despite claims to the contrary, traditional film cameras are still the best choice for professionals
D. Cameras with folded optics system generally do not produce image quality as those with interchangeable lenses.
E. Price should not be a primary factor in determining whether to buy a particular camera.

Can anyone explain what is wrong with B?

Also, no where in the stimulus the image quality of the two types of cameras is compared. SO, how can D stand any chance?

B is to restrictive, the paragraph does tell you that serious photographers !!who are interest in superior image quality!!! should use fixed blablabla. However, the paragraph does not tell you that it is their main concern.

Easiest way, neglect B and you see that the paragraph still holds ...

A. Cameras with fixed length lenses are too bulky for anyone but the professional photographer
How do we know that. We can just tell that the recommended camera for professional is bulky and that's it.

B. Serious photographers are concerned primarily with superior image quality.
The passage talks about the serious photographers who are concerned with superior image quality. It is not mentioned that having superior image quality is the primary requirement per se.

C. Despite claims to the contrary, traditional film cameras are still the best choice for professionals
traditional film cameras not mentioned. Extra info and out of scope.

D. Cameras with folded optics system generally do not produce image quality as those with interchangeable lenses.
It can be inferred, otherwise the author would have recommended folded optics system cameras for professional photographers.

E. Price should not be a primary factor in determining whether to buy a particular camera.
Extra element-price.

Can anyone explain what is wrong with B?

Ans: "D"

A. Cameras with fixed length lenses are too bulky for anyone but the professional photographer – INCORRECT – “anyone by professional” is too large of a set of photographers that are not even mentioned in the passage
B. Serious photographers are concerned primarily with superior image quality. – INCORRECT – it is an inference not supported by the premise above. “For the serious photographer interested in superior image quality” implies that not all serious photographers are interested in superior image quality.
C. Despite claims to the contrary, traditional film cameras are still the best choice for professionals – INCORRECT – film cameras are not discussed in the passage
D. Cameras with folded optics system generally do not produce image quality as those with interchangeable lenses. – CORRECT – “generally” is a vague enough term that makes the statement easy to prove. Test: Can this statement be proved with information in the passage? Yes – Since photographers interested in image quality chose interchangeable lens camera over folded, the inference must be true.
E. Price should not be a primary factor in determining whether to buy a particular camera. – INCORRECT – there is mention of price in the passage

D for me as well.

The argument mentions that "Only those serious photographers, who are interested in superior image quality" => prefer fixed length ....It does not mention anything about all the serious photographers.
