A major film studio announced the release date of a movie based on a novel that, though it was a bestseller when first published, has been out of print for nearly fifteen years. Hoping to capitalize on the anticipated success of the film, the publisher who owns the copyright on the novel plans to print a new edition to be made available the same week the film premieres.

EACH of the following, if true, supports the soundness of the publisher’s plan to capitalize on the success of the film EXCEPT

A. The publisher has received permission from the film studio to stamp the words “Now a major motion picture” on the cover of each book.
B. Last year a new edition of a novel that had been out of print hit the bestseller lists two weeks after a movie biography of its author was released.
C. The publisher received two hundred thousand dollars after selling the production rights to the film studio.
D. The actress playing the lead in the film has discussed her love for the novel in nationally televised interviews.
E. Last year a new edition of an unpopular novel was adapted into a top-grossing film, and sales of the book spiked.

I thought it was C too, and I thought it was pretty darn obvious. But the OA is D. Anyone can reason that? Is there something I am missing?

Are you sure about the OA.. bcoz if we consider D , then its mentioned that the lead actress has shown interest in the novel, that means it would work for the publicity of the novel and thus the author can capitalize

That's what I am thinking as well. Apparently Gmatclub Tests Verbal set#01 has the OA as D.

I think it's a mistake, unless I am seriously missing something here.

Maybe answer would be D if there was not any choice C . In my guess C is much more irrevelant then D. D could be out due to the use of present perfect.
