Against the Grain, a new carpentry company with a young workforce, has been putting all of its resources into filling custom cabinetry orders. This remains the company's focus even though greater revenues can be generated by custom door orders, which take less time, than by custom cabinetry orders.
Which of the following, if true, most helps to explain why Against the Grain has been focusing on the less profitable of the two courses of action mentioned above?
A. The company's marketing and sales specialist is more familiar with custom doors than with furniture.
B. Custom cabinetry in areas where new homes are being built is a more profitable industry than custom cabinetry in areas where the number of homes is static.
C. In some cities, profits made from contract work are more heavily taxed than profits made from merchandise sales.
D. Some custom cabinetry orders are rejected and have to be rebuilt.
E. The amount of experience required to build a satisfactory custom door is three times more than that required to build cabinets.

A. The company's marketing and sales specialist is more familiar with custom doors than with furniture. WRONG! Weakens the argument
B. Custom cabinetry in areas where new homes are being built is a more profitable industry than custom cabinetry in areas where the number of homes is static. WRONG! Argument is not concerned about the state of homes
C. In some cities, profits made from contract work are more heavily taxed than profits made from merchandise sales. WRONG! Both custom cabinetry & custom doors are contract works
D. Some custom cabinetry orders are rejected and have to be rebuilt. WRONG! Weakens the argument
E. The amount of experience required to build a satisfactory custom door is three times more than that required to build cabinets.
Correct Answer E.
This strengthens the argument by giving a reason as to why the focus on less profitable of the two is justified.
