All people prefer colors that they can distinguish easily to colors that they have difficulty distinguishing. Infants can easily distinguish bright colors but, unlike adults, have difficulty distinguishing subtle shades. A brightly colored toy for infants sells better than the same toy in subtle shades at the same price.

Which one of the following conclusions is most strongly supported by the information in the passage?

(A) Infants prefer bright primary colors to bright secondary colors.

(B) Color is the most important factor in determining which toys an infant will prefer to play with.

(C) Individual infants do not have strong preferences for one particular bright color over other bright colors.

(D) The sales of toys of infants reflect the preferences of infants in at least one respect.

(E) Toy makers study infants to determine what colors the infants can distinguish easily.

I am between B and D.

(B) Color is the most important factor in determining which toys an infant will prefer to play with.

as the stem says that infants prefer bright colors to subtle ones. so it becomes an important factor. I am leaning more towards this choice.

(D) The sales of toys of infants reflect the preferences of infants in at least one respect.
still doubtful about it. the stem says that bright colored ones sell better and this does talk about sales in that aspect.!!!

need more discussion for this one..

B) is too strong. there is clearly a difference between "prefer" and "most important factor". maybe the kids like the smell of their toys more than its colour. so the smell would be the most important factor. we just dont know.

But the question ask for 'most support.' why 'too srong' can not be the answer?

(C) Individual infants do not have strong preferences for one particular bright color over other bright colors.
###There is no mention of preference among the bright colors.

(D) The sales of toys of infants reflect the preferences of infants in at least one respect.
###Yes!

(E) Toy makers study infants to determine what colors the infants can distinguish easily.
###Nope. Bright colored toys sell well. Apart from this fact, there is no mention of or allusion to a study.
