According to an independent computer-industry analyst, the new Regent microcomputer is of high quality, is fast, and costs less than any currently existing competing model. It is reasonable to conclude, therefore, as the manufacturer’s prospectus does, that the Regent will quickly establish itself as a fast-selling, low-priced alternative to currently available microcomputers.

Which of the following, if true, would LEAST weaken the argument above?


(A) Many retailers already carry one or more low-priced microcomputer models and are disinclined to carry another.

(B) Several faster and lower-priced models of microcomputers will soon be introduced by other computer manufacturers.

(C) The Regent Corporation’s microcomputer can be used in conjunction with higher-priced microcomputers manufactured by other companies.

(D) Most of those individuals and companies that could be expected to make up the potential market for the Regent microcomputer have already filled their microcomputer needs.

(E) The independent computer-industry analyst whose assessment was incorporated in the prospectus has used measures of quality that are not universally accepted by the computer-buying public.

It means the answer should not weaken ==either Neutral 0r Strengthen

(A) Many retailers already carry one or more low-priced microcomputer models and are disinclined to carry another.---sales will be affected bcz of disinclination of retailers, leading to weakening of conclusion

(B) Several faster and lower-priced models of microcomputers will soon be introduced by other computer manufacturers. ---Therefore, they would replace the new model introduced and hence conclusion is weakened

(C) The Regent Corporation’s microcomputer can be used in conjunction with higher-priced microcomputers manufactured by other companies. ---Irrelevant

(D) Most of those individuals and companies that could be expected to make up the potential market for the Regent microcomputer have already filled their microcomputer needs. ---No market exist for the newly introduced market , hence conclusion is weakened

(E) The independent computer-industry analyst whose assessment was incorporated in the prospectus has used measures of quality that are not universally accepted by the computer-buying public.---Quality measurement parameters are different , means parameter to evaluate old computers are not same as for new computer, hence conclusion is weakened

IMO C
