How is 'C' irrelevant :roll: ? If certain foods cannot be cooked using silicone, then obviously people would search for new stores which offer such foods. And this will make the supermarket's objective or advertisement immaterial.
'E' will prove that supermarket is wrong in their assumption that silicone in food is harmful.

We are not concerned with the processing techniques. What if certain techniques are better than the other. This doesn't render the argument ineffective. Supermarket argument is making a judgement call without proper research. It is trying to make it a causal argument. Silicone -> ill health without any grounds.

Answer should be E.

If the silicon is harmful when taken orally, the supermarket’s decision and hence their advertisement is immaterial.
