### HideShow timer Statistics

Advertiser: The revenue that newspapers and magazines earn by publishing advertisements allows publishers to keep the prices per copy of their publications much lower than would otherwise be possible. Therefore, consumers benefit economically from advertising.
Consumer: But who pays for the advertising that pays for low-priced newspapers and magazines? We consumers do, because advertisers pass along advertising costs to us through the higher prices they charge for their products.
Which of the following best describes how the consumer counters the advertiserâ€™s argument?
(A) By alleging something that, if true, would weaken the plausibility of the advertiserâ€™s conclusion
(B) By questioning the truth of the purportedly factual statement on which the advertiserâ€™s conclusion is based
(C) By offering an interpretation of the advertiserâ€™s opening statement that, if accurate, shows that there is an implicit contradiction in it
(D) By pointing out that the advertiserâ€™s point of view is biased
(E) By arguing that the advertiser too narrowly restricts the discussion to the effects of advertising that are economic

A looks good. In effect, it summarises the argument made by the consumer. By alleging something that (advertisers pass along advertising costs to us through the higher prices they charge for their products), if true (the consumer agrues this is true), would weaken the plausibility of the advertiser's conclusion (onsumers benefit economically from advertising)
