### HideShow timer Statistics

At many universities in the United States, the average price of a used computer has risen dramatically. This rise has come about mostly because of increased demand from students entering college who need a computer but cannot afford to purchase a new one. In order to take advantage of this market, college seniors have been selling the computers that they have used throughout their college careers to incoming freshmen. This trend is sure to exert an upward pressure on the price of new computers as well.

To support a conclusion that the average price of a new computer will rise, it would be most important to establish which of the following?

A) The proliferation of e-mail and the Internet has made buying and selling used merchandise much easier.

B) Since most students need a computer to perform only basic duties. used computers are usually just as useful as new ones.

C) Most students who sell their used computers are inclined to replace them with new computers.

D) College seniors are more likely to wait until they secure employment before making any expensive purchases.

E) The majority of students who purchase new computers before entering college purchase another one before they graduate.
