Advertisement: The world’s 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 Kreemo’s coffee, you’re 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 Kreemo’s competitors use Colombian coffee beans in the blends of coffee they sell
(C) Kreemo sells more coffee than does any other company
(D) Kreemo’s coffee is the most expensive blended coffee available today
(E) the best unblended coffee is better than the best blended coffee

Kreemo might be selling more so it might end up buying more coffee beans and this doesnt help us in concluding anything about the quality, hence flawed. IMO C.

Yes I would go with C too. Since it sells more than any body, so the more buying of coffee beans is justified.

C it is
Kreemo purchases more coffee beans because of its sales, it does not mean that it adds more columbian beans in the blend.

E is irrelavant

The conclusion is that Kremo's cofee serve the best blended coffee.
Even if unblended coffees are better than blended coffees, it is not relevant with the conclusion.

Read E carefully: It actually supports Kreemo's claim. C is correct.

The sentence need an assumption : Kreemo's sales figure must be comparable that of others if the quality will be compared. If Kreemo sells more coffee than others than it is incorrect to assert that their coffee is best since The more Colombian beans in a blend of coffee, the better the blend,

C suggests that kreemo company is buying more beans becuase its sales are more , so it implies that kreemo are not using more beans to make the blend better. So C hints that the conclusion is flawed.

why can't it be option B ?

(B) not all of Kreemo’s competitors use Colombian coffee beans in the blends of coffee they sell
Conclusion - So it only stands to reason that if you buy a can of Kreemo’s coffee, you’re buying the best blended coffee available today.

the above sentence means - some of Kreemo's competitors use CCB in the blends of coffee they sell. IMO argument is flawed because even though the quantity of the beans is not mentioned, we didn't care about the chance of other players selling coffee with CCB(unknown proportion of beans).

Please counter my argument as I have seen no one discussing about this option.

It should be C...as we are using a comparison word Best...but we do not know exact sales figures of coffee
