A recent report that artichokes contain a cholesterol-lowering compound called Luteolin apparently had a little effect on consumers. Very few consumers decided to start buying artichokes as a result of the report. However, sales of artichokes in grocery stores increased sharply in June, a month after the report was announced.

Which of the following, if true, best explains the reason for the apparent discrepancy described above?


A. In June, many artichoke suppliers supplied artichokes to grocers at half the price, thus resulting in much cheaper artichoke availability in large quantities to consumers.

B. The growing number of food related reports since January caused consumers to lose interest interest in such news.

C. The report was aired on the radio and also appeared in the newspapers.

D. Though Luteolin is found in many vegetables, the report didi not mention any vegetable other than the artichoke.

E. In May, another report citing that artichokes may be sprayed with pesticides containing cancer causing chemicals was released a week after the first report.

Though the report had minimal effect on consumption yet sales increased.

We can safely conclude that the increase in demand of the commodity must be due to some other factor.

(B) Out of scope
(C) The report is important, not the mode of publication.
(D) Condenteder, but think if this is true why didn't the sakes increase immediately after the publication of the report ?
(E) Weakens the conclusion, and casts serious doubts about the increase in Demand of the item after publication of such a report.


Only (A) attributes some other reason for the increase in demand, correct answer must be (A)
