Which of the following best completes the passage below?

An Entertainment industry spokesperson's statement that the industry loses millions of dollars every year due to illegal downloads of mobile applications. Yet, this claim is not representative of the truth. Most people who illegally download mobile applications without paying for them are those that have no serious interest in that application. Thus, the loss to the industry is quite small, because......

a. the total market value of all illegal copies is low in comparison to the total revenue of the entertainment industry
b. the number of mobile applications that are frequently copied illegally is low in comparison to the number of mobile applications available for sale
c.most people who illegally copy mobile applications would not purchase them even if purchasing them were the only way to obtain them
d.even if the entertainment industry received all the revenue it claims to be losing, it would still be experiencing financial difficulties
e.many users who illegally copy mobile applications never find any use for them

Hi...

If you want to hit the correct Choice, look for an answer that should FLOW from the contents of Para..

Now para talks in particular about interest of the people who are downloading the items illegally. They are not interested in it much.
Then the para concludes that the loss to the industry due to such person would be minimal.

Choices A, B and D do not touch on these people and may give some other reasons for minimal loss but these are OUT of context here.

Choice E does talk of these persons but does not touch on losses part.
. Choice C, on the other hand, talks of revenue. It tells us that there would have been any increase in the revenue of these were stopped as these persons would not have purchased it as they did not have much interest in it.
Correct
C
