### HideShow timer Statistics

An advertisement designed to convince readers of the great durability of automobiles manufactured by the Deluxe Motor Car Company cites as evidence the fact that over half of all automobiles built by the company since 1970 are still on the road today, compared to no more than a third for any other manufacturer.

Which of the following, if true, most strongly supports the advertisementâ€™s argument?
(A) After taking inflation into account, a new Deluxe automobile costs only slightly more than a new model did in 1970.
(B) The number of automobiles built by Deluxe each year has not increased sharply since 1970.
(C) Owners of Deluxe automobiles typically keep their cars well maintained.
(D) Since 1970, Deluxe has made fewer changes in the automobiles it manufactures than other car companies have made in their automobiles.
(E) Deluxe automobiles have been selling at relatively stable prices in recent years.

I choose B.
I know this is idiomatic answer due to the kind of comparison...

All the answer choices seem weird to me.

B becuase the ad says the same number of cars on the road since 1970, we want to elaborate by saying that the company suddenly did not start selling so many cars that even if they most cars brokedown the number of cars on the road would be around the same sinc 1970. B says the number of cars produced was still the same, and therefore the number of cars out on the road has remained constant, i.e. implying reliable cars....
