Between B and C....IMO B....

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 couldn’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. - out of scope
(B) The Daily Clarion usually devotes more of its pages to out-of-town news than does the Daily Bugle. - let's consider there are 10 pages in both the papers and DC devotes 2 pages and DB devotes only 1 page for out-of-town news, however what if DC devotes 8 pages for GC and DB devotes only 9 pages for GC, hold on
(C) Nearly 40 percent of the readers of the Daily Clarion reside outside the limits of Gotham City. - what about remaining 60% people, they stay in GC, so DC holds here, out
(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. - out of scope
(E) The Daily Bugle has been published in Gotham City for a longer time than has the Daily Clarion. - out of scope

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 couldn’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. - Who Cares?? Irrelevant
(B) The Daily Clarion usually devotes more of its pages to out-of-town news than does the Daily Bugle. - The context is about the owners of DB not caring about the people of GC. It is not about news coverage of one city over the other. - Out of Scope.
(C) Nearly 40 percent of the readers of the Daily Clarion reside outside the limits of Gotham City. - Out of Scope
(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. - The context is that the owners don't care about the people of Gotham City. But if they live in Gotham City for more than a decade, this argument refutes the advertisement. --> CORRECT ANSWER
(E) The Daily Bugle has been published in Gotham City for a longer time than has the Daily Clarion. - Irrelevant

D is definitely the best choice. The argument basically questions owner's affiliation with the city by calling him an outsider. But D says that the owner of newspper has lived in the city for more than 10 years,which means he cares for the city
