Ah man, totally fell for C. Haha. :-D

Such an easy question actually, as the last sentence states: "In the world of high technology, America has lost the battle for international prestige."
And E has nothing to do with technology. Good question!

Nowhere in the question stem a mention of food items is present so basically option E is out of scope option
Frozen food prepared in America and portrayed as Real European-style entrees prepared by fine French and Italian chefs is not actually supporting the claim made by author but rather using their(European counterparts) popularity to sell products in America
So correct choice
option C is incorrect due to the use of phrase ' American electronics firms boast in their advertising of Japanese-style devotion to quality and reliability '. Video games use this principle by using a japanese sounding name and confusing the customer.It is sort of a weak strengthener

At one time, European and Japanese companies tried to imitate their American rivals. Today, American appliance manufacturers import European scientists to lead their research staffs; American automakers design cars that mimic the styling of German, Italian, and French imports; and American electronics firms boast in their advertising of Japanese-style devotion to quality and reliability. In the world of high technology, America has lost the battle for international prestige.

Each of the following statements, if true, would help to support the claim above EXCEPT:

(A) An American camera company claims in its promotional literature to produce cameras as fine as the best Swiss imports.
(B) An American maker of stereo components designs its products to resemble those of a popular Japanese firm.
(C) An American manufacturer of video games uses a brand name chosen because it sounds like a Japanese word.
(D) An American maker of televisions studies German-made televisions in order to adopt German manufacturing techniques.
(E) An American maker of frozen foods advertises its dinners as Real European-style entrees prepared by fine French and Italian chefs.

Please explain your answers .................

There is not really much conflict in this thread - the majority seems to agree with the OA E. I do so as well because of two reasons already stated in this thread:

1. Frozen food is not a part of high technology industry.
2. at-one-time-european-and-japanese-companies-tried-to-64730.html#p473815

Option E is NOT about High Technology...where as all others are ...
Hence E..does NOT support the claim that In the world of high technology, America has lost the battle for international prestige...
