Brand X designs and builds custom sneakers, one sneaker at a time. It recently announced plans to sell “The Gold Standard,” a sneaker that will cost five times more to manufacture than any other sneaker that has ever been created.

Which of the following, if true, most supports the prediction that The Gold Standard shoe line will be profitable?

(A) The Gold Standard will be favored by urban hipsters willing to pay exceptionally high prices for an exclusive product.> directly related with the discussed product.I think this is the right answer.

(B) Of the last four new sneakers that Brand X has released, three have sold at a rate that was higher than projected.> no correlation between previous products' profitability and new one's.

(C) A rival brand recently declared bankruptcy and ceased manufacturing shoes. > only if all customers of that rival brand buys gold standard. we cannot make extraneous assumptions in CR.

(D) The market for The Gold Standard will not be more limited than the market for other Brand X shoes.> Nowhere it is mentioned the market of other Brand X shoes are profitable.

(E) The Gold Standard is made using canvas that is more than five times the cost of the canvas used in most sneakers. > it justifies why gold standard should be costly, not relevant.
