For instance, when radio stations stream their content onto the internet some ads must be stripped out for legal reasons. Advertisements featuring radio personalities often have to be removed because there is no arrangement to pay for the rights of on-air talent, writers and producers. This commonly used advertising type, featuring a trusted personality endorsing a product of service, will not be heard by the listeners who choose to listen on internet radio. Thus, advertisers have to consider the benefits of producing these types of ads in the new environment.

RightSpot and similar agencies are working to turn a nascent field into a viable business that benefits advertisers of any size. They expect the percentage of internet radio listeners to increase from 24 percent of listeners in 2006 to 50 percent in 2010. This increase will further add to the necessity for radio advertisers to change methodologies. Those that embrace the changes will certainly see positive results.

The Primary purpose of the article is to

A) Demonstrate why radio ads featuring an on-air personality are no longer effective.
D) Describe how radio advertising has remained relatively stable for the past 30 years.
E) Describe the ways in which Right Spot and similar agencies are turning a nascent field into a viable business.

The author implies that all of the following are changes internet radio is causing in the industry EXCEPT

A) Advertisements featuring radio personalities must are always removed because there is no arrangement to pay for the rights of on-air talent.
B) Radio ads from 30 years ago are similar to those aired today
D) The percentage of internet radio listeners is expected to more than double from 2006 to 2010

According to the article, RightSpot believes internet radio provides new opportunities for
A) On-Air personalities

The tone of the author towards advertising opportunities in internet radio can best be described as
A) Distrustful
B) Frustrated
C) Enthusiastic
D) Disinterested
E) Fervent

Can you please explain why A for q2 ... it is clearly mentioned as a change here For instance, when radio stations stream their content onto the internet some ads must be stripped out for legal reasons. Advertisements featuring radio personalities often have to be removed because there is no arrangement to pay for the rights of on-air talent, writers and producers.

Because "often have to be done" is not the same with "MUST be done". The fist means in most cases, while the second one means always. This kind of trap is quite often used in GMAT.

As I understood the question we should eliminate all reasons that changed the industry. Fot instance, lets look on D. The growing number of users is not caused by the internet radio, but obviously it is the reason of changes. B plays the same role. The industry had not been changed and was outdated; therefore, it had to be changed for needs of the internet marketing.

In contrast, "A" gives us the reason not mentioned in the article. So A.

But doesnt the language mean that ...the changes internet radio are causing....
A may b extreme but is still relevant
B is something IR has no effect on
D may be thought of as ...the features are causing the viwershi to increase as in ..its the effect of the good things abt IR

B still seem the right answer may b i understood something incorectly lease explain

I second this as well... B is the lesser of two evils but i do believe the chances of finding such ambiguity in the answer choices on GMAT is very unlikely.[/quote]

I have similar feeling. i went with B and it seems like the right answer

For question number 2, even though A is an extreme statement, B is not stated as a change that internet radio is causing. I marked B. Still do not understand why A is correct. Can anyone please explain?

Hello urvashis09

The statement B says that "Radio ads from 30 years ago are similar to those aired today" and following is what I understand from the passage.

The internet radio has already started in the past. It is not something that is going to start in the future or starting now. Since the internet radio has already started and the author says that radio ad's today are similar to those 30 years ago, I think the internet radio has a role in keeping these ads similar. This eliminates option B.

Does this make sense ?

Thank you workout, I guess I incorrectly assumed that internet radio just started. Re-read the passage and noticed nothing like that is explicitly mentioned anywhere. Huge overlook on my part. Thank you again!
