15. A recent survey found that more computers than
copies of computer programs were purchased by
Germans last year. The best interpretation of this
finding is that the practice of illegally duplicating
among Germans.
Each of the following, if true, would counter some
reasonable objection to the interpretation advanced
above EXCEPT:
(A) Few German computer users write their own
computer programs.
(B) There are few free noncommercial computer
programs available in Germany.
(C) Some Germans purchase computers outside of
Germany for use in Germany, and such
purchases were counted in the survey.
(D) The typical German computer user has several
commercially written computer programs on
his or her computer.
(E) Many Germans legally make duplicates of
commercial computer programs, but such
duplicates were counted as purchased copies in
the survey.

E. The idea that Germans bought even less programs than was initially estimated does NOT strengthen the claim that Germans are not duplicating software.

Fact: More computers purchased than computer programs purchased.
Conclusion: Germans been duplicating computer programs illegally.

Reasonable objections/explanations to the fact can be:

1. Some Germans write their own program so need to buy pcs but not programs.
3. Some Germans don't keep any program in their pcs.
4. Some Germans may have copied the programs legally.

(A) Few German computer users write their own
computer programs.
Counter 1.

(B) There are few free noncommercial computer
programs available in Germany.
Counter 2.

(C) Some Germans purchase computers outside of
Germany for use in Germany, and such
purchases were counted in the survey.
No use. If it was about computer programs purchased outside of Germany instead of pcs, then it would be useful.

(D) The typical German computer user has several
commercially written computer programs on
his or her computer.
Counter 3.

(E) Many Germans legally make duplicates of
commercial computer programs, but such
duplicates were counted as purchased copies in
the survey.
Counter 4.

My choice would be C.

A great question.

It has to be C as there are no other fitting choices.
