### HideShow timer Statistics

A famous singer recently won a lawsuit against an advertising firm for using another singer in a commercial to evoke the famous singerâ€™s well-known rendition of a certain song. As a result of the lawsuit, advertising firms will stop using imitators in commercials. Therefore,advertising costs will rise, since famous singersâ€™ services cost more than those of their imitators.
The conclusion above is based on which of the following assumptions?
(A) Most people are unable to distinguish a famous singerâ€™s rendition of a song from a good imitatorâ€™s rendition of the same song.
(B) Commercials using famous singers are usually more effective than commercials using
imitators of famous singers.
(C) The original versions of some well-known songs are unavailable for use in
commercials.
(D) Advertising firms will continue to use imitators to mimic the physical mannerisms of
famous singers.
(E) The advertising industry will use well-known renditions of songs in commercials.

I will go with E - When advertising firms continue to use well-known renditions, they will have to use the famous singer's service, whose cost is more.

Picked E.

C is not in, because there is nothing to suggest that "original records are in -expensive" , it might be so that they are more expensive than a re-recording, and hence is not an assumption for the projected increase in costs ( it might well be that expenses would have been lower if the originals were available).

Picked E. If you negate E, the conclusion "advertising costs will rise, since famous singersâ€™ services cost more than those of their imitators.", will fail.

Therefore E
