Daily Bugle is owned by an out-of-town business syndicat. But 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.

D is the best one, since it provides information that Daily Clarion isn't the only newspaper serving as a voice of GC.

D is the most relevant in refuting the line of reasoning in the argument.

Only D somewhat the argument by mentioning that the editors and staff have been in the town for 10 yrs.

Still it doesn't mean that they care about the local people

I pick B.....so people gather around and beat me up or atleast my logic.

If the daily clarion devotes most of its pages to out ot town news, it clearly cares less about the gotham residents.

D. The editors may live in town but doesn't mean that they publish local issues relevant to people of gotham.

I also picked B on this... Can some one explain whY B was wrong?

D does not say anything about caring of people.. The editors might have lived any of the ten years... It does not say the last 10 years.. it just says 10 years.. They could have lived before they were editors.. and now they are editors but live outside..

Can some one pls explain?

D.

The author argues that since the newspaper is owned by a out of town business it doesnot care for the town. But D says that the editor and the editorial staff are based in the town hence they understand the concerns of the town people and will address them throught the paper
