Which of the following completes the argument below.

Twenty percent of the stores in Morganville's downtown shopping district will fail within give years because they will be competing directly with the Savemart discount department store newly openedd in East Morganville. The downtown shopping district jas lost business at this rate before and has always completey rebounded. Confidence that will rebound again from the losses it is now about to suffer is ill founded, however, because _____________________

a) the stores likely to be put out of business by direct competition from Savemart are the downton shopping district's anchor stores, on whose ability to draw shoppers many of the other downtown stores depend

b) the bus line that has long connected the downtown area of Morganville with East Morganville has a tradition of carrying shoppers who reside in East Morganville into downtown Morganville to shop

c) when the downtown shopping district has rebounced before, the business premises of a failed business were typically taken over by a business of the same kind as had been there before

d) Savemart's business plan for teh East Morganville store is based on earning low profits, if any, during the first 5 years of store's existence

e) it is conceivable that the downtown shopping district could shrink substantially without collapsing altogether

A for me too

B looks a option as well , esp because it is mentioned that the new store opened in East -side of the town and the bus carried passenger from the same side of the town . But still A will gain more points as "this bus service has been a long tradition" so it might have been existing during the last downturn as well.

>> Hold

b) the bus line that has long connected the downtown area of Morganville with East Morganville has a tradition of carrying shoppers who reside in East Morganville into downtown Morganville to shop
>> indicates why the business will rebound

c) when the downtown shopping district has rebounced before, the business premises of a failed business were typically taken over by a business of the same kind as had been there before
>> another reason to rebound

d) Savemart's business plan for teh East Morganville store is based on earning low profits, if any, during the first 5 years of store's existence
>> then it would not have rebounded in past, and we dont know when it started

e) it is conceivable that the downtown shopping district could shrink substantially without collapsing altogether
>> irrelavent or shrinking/collapsing

A. Agree with A.

If these shoping stores make business out of the people visiting other stores in the district, then business lost to Savemart doesnot create additional jobs that were lost by the closure of these stores.

Rest all, B/C/D/E, are completely out of scope and irrelavant.
