Are you still reading the other newspaper in town? Did you know that the Daily Bugle is owned by an out-of-town business syndicate that couldnâ€™t care less about the people of Gotham City? Read the Daily Clarion, the only real voice of the people of Gotham City!

Which of the following most directly refutes the argument raised in the advertisement above?

(A) Over half of the advertising revenues of the Daily Clarion come from firms whose headquarters are located outside of Gotham City.
(B) The Daily Clarion usually devotes more of its pages to out-of-town news than does the Daily Bugle.
(C) Nearly 40 percent of the readers of the Daily Clarion reside outside the limits of Gotham City.
(D) The editor-in-chief and all the other members of the editorial staff of the Daily Bugle have lived and worked in Gotham City for ten years or more.
(E) The Daily Bugle has been published in Gotham City for a longer time than has the Daily Clarion.

Clearly B. The clarion prints mostly out of town news, which isn`t representative of the people in Gotham city. Weird question...

I think D is correct. Since, the editorial staffs of the newspaper have been resident of Gotham city for more than 10 years, they are more likely to publish local city issues. Hence, this refutes the advertisement directly.

Considered D, but frankly it makes a huge assumption that just because the EIC and other staff have lived in Gotham that they would be willing to write a larger portion of stories about the city.

B compares the Bugle to the Clarion, and statistically proves that the clarion devotes more of its pages to out of town news. Whoops!! What if the Clarion is 200 pages of news while the Bugle is just 20??

It`s gotta be B or D.

Between B and D. I vote for B.

The point of the argument is that "Daily Bugle does not care about Gotham people.

(A) and (D) all seem fine to me. However, I vote for (A).

A - Newspapers live on advertisements. If the majority of its advertising income comes from outside of Gotham, it would be very difficult for the newspaper to represent the real voice of gotham city.

B - Daily Clarion talks more about other cities than about gotham city, and so it doesnt look to represent the real voice of gotham city.

Here, let's go back to the starting point - Does Daily Clarion represent the real voice of gotham people?

Suppose that the firms mentioned in (A) are planning to build a nuclear power plant in gotham, and that the gotham people strongly opposing to the plan. I'm sure that Daily Clarion will publish articles in favor of those firms.

The evidence presented is that the daily bugle is owned by an out-of town syndicate and hence will provide less local news.

Point B proves that the local news provided by clarion is lesser compared to that of Bugle.

it'll be (D) for me. (D) clearly refutes the argument in the advert.
Devoting more of it's pages to out-of-town news is out-of-scope.

We have to show that the Clarision doesn't readlly care about Gotham.

Only B does that. If they cared, why would most of the news be about out of town issues?
D- worng because the choice does not seal with the main argument. So what if the staff lived in Gotham? Just because they used to live there doesn't mean that theyc are about it.

Any insight on where the answers for the 1000 files are coming from? Is it similiar to the "difficulty" level document that has been floating around that is subjective?
