Which of the following most logically completes the argument?

According to experts on shopping behavior, more shoppers would shop at Jerrod’s department store if they were offered the convenience of shopping carts.

(B) several department stores that compete with Jerrod’s have begun to make shopping carts available to their customers

(C) there are some potential customers who would not be enticed to shop at Jerrod’s by the availability of shopping carts

(D) stores that make shopping carts available to customers usually have to hire people to retrieve them from parking areas

Hi,

We need a reason as to why making the shopping cart available will increase the profits.

As per option E, people who buy using shopping carts tend to shop more than the average customer. Hence it increase profits and clearly fits our requirement.

Option E.

Regards,
Dom.

(A) the layout of Jerrod’s is open enough to accommodate shopping carts comfortably -- >Irrelevant (Need a reason how shopping carts would increase more profit)

(B) several department stores that compete with Jerrod’s have begun to make shopping carts available to their customers --> several department - Out of Scope

(C) there are some potential customers who would not be enticed to shop at Jerrod’s by the availability of shopping carts --> potential customers who would not be enticed to shop - Out of Scope

(D) stores that make shopping carts available to customers usually have to hire people to retrieve them from parking areas --> hire people to retrieve them from parking areas - Out of Scope

(E) a customer with a shopping cart buys more, on average, than a customer without a cart - Bingo customer with a shopping cart buys more hence more profit
