Therefore, advertisers are likely to ___________.

Which one of the following most logically completes the argument?

(A) use little if any written prose in their advertisements

(B) try to encourage people to develop positive attitudes about products that can be better represented pictorially than in prose

(C) place their advertisements on television rather than in magazines

(D) highlight the desirable features of the advertised product by contrasting them pictorially with undesirable features of a competing product

(E) create advertisements containing pictures of things most members of the target audience like

Clearly E stands as the best answer.

Paraphrasing the stimulus would help us identify the answer.

Advertisers learned that people develop positive attitude over things that they have neutral or negative attitude if those things are linked with pictorial help to things about which people already have positive attitude.

(A) use little if any written prose in their

(B) try to encourage people to develop positive
attitudes about products that can be better
represented pictorially than in proseTrap answer. Advertisers themselves would not try to encourage people to develop positive attitude.
(C) place their advertisements on television rather
than in magazinesThe stimulus did not discuss anything about the type of medium that is preferable for advertising.
(D) highlight the desirable features of the advertised
product by contrasting them pictorially with
undesirable features of a competing productContrasting undesirable features of a competing product is no where mentioned in the stimulus.
(E) create advertisements containing pictures of
things most members of the target audience
likeThis is what can be directly inferred from the passage.

(C) place their advertisements on television rather than in magazines No point doing this

(D) highlight the desirable features of the advertised product by contrasting them pictorially with undesirable features of a competing product may have negative effect on the user

(E) create advertisements containing pictures of things most members of the target audience like correct

Clearly E stands out as long as we pay attention to the line "to things about which they already have positive attitudes"

Therefore, advertisers are likely to ___________.

Which one of the following most logically completes the argument?

(A) use little if any written prose in their advertisements --If writting is essential then they will write along with the picture.

(B) try to encourage people to develop positive attitudes about products that can be better represented pictorially than in prose --No. They will create pitures of products towards which people are already having positive attitude.

(C) place their advertisements on television rather than in magazines --TV and magazine both can have pics

(D) highlight the desirable features of the advertised product by contrasting them pictorially with undesirable features of a competing product --Same as B

(E) create advertisements containing pictures of things most members of the target audience like --Correct. As per the argument.
