HideShow timer Statistics

worldwide retail sales of home entertainment systems, which include a television and an audio system, increased twenty-five percent this year over last year. at the same time, worldwide retail sales of new automobiles declined by about the same percent. these statistics show that consumers can no longer afford to purchase both types of products during the same year.

which of the following, if true, would cast more serious doubt on the conclusion drawn above?

a. fewer advertisements for new cars appeared on television during the most recent year than during the previous year.
b. consumers are spending more money on home entertainment systems than on new cars.
c. people who own home entertainment systems do not dry their automobiles as often as other people.
d. prices of home entertainment systems and new cars were higher during previous year.
e. the reliability of automobiles this year improved significantly over last year.

since i don't know whether there is a right word "dry" in original source, i am not able to think about proper answer.

Will go for B.

"dry" in C should be "drive"

I've seen this qest before, I think the OA is E. Cars are more reliable now, that's why spending on them has decreased.

B actually supports the conclusion.

I can refute E.
It says reliability of cars improved more than it did last year. If so then people should be purchasing more cars this year.

I think B is the best.

You cannot compares sales of car to audio equipment. The numbers of audio equipment will definitely more than number of cars. I believe B sums it up.
