Bolter Industries trimmer tested by National Laboratories------------------so----------------> Safety

There is an obvious gap between test results published by Bolter Industries and the safety standards of the trimmers.

So, (C) is definitely the answer !!

Power hedge trimmer does its job. But may cause injury to untrained operators. BI's hedge trimmers are tested by NL, which is a trusted safety company. So BI's hedge trimmers are safe.
To evaluate the argument, we have to check whether the BI's hedge trimmers are really safe to be used even by untrained operators.

(A) Has National Laboratories performed safety tests on other machines made by Bolter Industries? - Incorrect - Irrelevant
(B) How important to the average buyer of a power hedge trimmer is safety of operation? - Incorrect - We are not concerned about the average buyers importance to safety. We are concerned about the safety of BI's hedge trimmer.
(C) What were the results of National Laboratories’ tests of Bolter Industries’ hedge trimmer? - Correct - If the results were positive then its safe. If not then its not safe to be used.
(D) Are there safer ways of trimming a hedge than using a power hedge trimmer? - Incorrect - Irrelevant
(E) Does any other power hedge trimmer on the market do a better job of trimming hedges than does Bolter Industries’ hedge trimmer? - Incorrect - Irrelevant

I'd go with C. If the results are bad, you definitely don't buy a product the usage of which is safe.

Conclusion : I buy BHT then I get surety that BHT is safe.

Pre-think: Why BHT is safe. Because BHT has been tested by national Laboratories or Because BHT has passed national laboratories test :D.

Option C fills the gap.

(C) What were the results of National Laboratories’ tests of Bolter Industries’ hedge trimmer? - Correct - If the results were positive then its safe. If not then its not safe to be used.
