At a certain library, audio books on CDs can be checked out for three weeks at a time while music CDs can be checked out for only ten days at a time. The library initially categorized audio books in such a way that they could only be checked out for ten days at a time, but the library director recently changed the library's policies so that audio books could be checked out for three weeks at a time.
Which of the following is a premise upon which the library director's decision could have been based?

A. In the ways that people use them, audio books are more similar to printed books than they are to recorded music.
B. audio books cost, on average, more than twice as much as the equivalent hardcover version of the printed book.
C. People who checked out audio books, like people who checked out recorded music, often kept the library's materials longer than the authorized ten-day period.
D. Because most people can listen to a story for a longer period than they can read the same story, most people finish audio books faster than they could finish the printed version.
E. To get the most out of a book, people should read the original edition of the printed text instead of a condensed audio book version.

IMO C
but not sure seems better than other.

I would go with A.

I would not go with C because it also includes "like people who checked out recorded music". Thus, it is not logical enough and would convey that even recorded music should be allowed for a longer period. This is does not support the decision of the library director.

IMO the answer shall be 'A'. The premise for increasing the duration of keeping the audio books is rightly brought out in 'A' i.e comparing it with printed books. Additionally, comparing audio books with music CDs would be wrong, which is also brought out in 'A'.
Option 'C' says the opposite. According to option 'C', the duration for both audio and music CDs shall be increased, which is not the case.
