The worldтАЩs best coffee beans come from Colombia.
The more Colombian beans in a blend of coffee, the
better the blend, and no company purchases more
Colombian beans than Kreemo Coffee. Inc. So it
only stands to reason that if you buy a can of
KreemoтАЩs coffee, youтАЩre buying the best blended
coffee available today.

The reasoning of the argument in the advertisement
is flawed because it overlooks the possibility that
(A) the equipment used by Kreemo to blend and
package its coffee is no different from that
used by most other coffee producers
(B) not all of KreemoтАЩs competitors use Colombian
coffee beans in the blends of coffee they sell
(C) Kreemo sells more coffee than does any other
company
(D) KreemoтАЩs coffee is the most expensive blended
coffee available today
(E) the best unblended coffee is better than the best
blended coffee

Answer is C.

My logic is like this. Correct me if I am wrong.

Because Kreemo sells the most coffee, it also buys the most Columbian beans. However, this does not necessarily mean that it has the most Columbian in a blend. Thus, the conclusion may not be valid.

This one took me a while to get or at all :shock:

Right, boarder, it has nothing to do with cost, the advertisement never claim , we'll use Starbucks is the cheapest.

While it sells the most, it also has to buy back the most beans. Since it can't keep buying back beans to make a profit, it is possible Starbucks uses cheaper beans in its coffee and not the most blended.

Strategy: I think on CR's when you get stuck the best advice is to plug in the answer choice back into the stem and try to make sense of it.
