Burger Land, a nationwide fast-food chain, recently announced a special promotion dramatically reducing the price of its most popular burger, the Big and Beefy. This development has provoked a strong response by the nation’s nutritionists. Citing the extremely high levels of cholesterol in the Big and Beefy, they predict that the price reduction will have a negative impact on the health of our citizens.

The nutritionists’ argument assumes which of the following?

A. Some consumers induced by the price reduction to purchase the Big and Beefy would otherwise have consumed food lower in cholesterol than the Big and Beefy.

B. Reducing fat consumption is the most important factor in improving one’s diet.

C. Burger Land could not have increased sales of the Big and Beefy by reducing its cholesterol content and appealing to health-conscious consumers.

D. Other fast-food companies will not respond to Burger Land’s announcement by reducing the price of their own high-cholesterol burgers.

E. Lost revenue due to the price reduction in the Big and Beefy will be offset by an increase in the number of burgers sold.

Burger Land reduced the price of burger. Price reduction provoked a response from nutritionists. Response: High cholesterol in burger + price reduction will have a negative impact on health.

Possible Assumption: Price reduction will cause people to eat more burgers, increasing the cholesterol consumption

A. Some consumers induced by the price reduction to purchase the Big and Beefy would otherwise have consumed food lower in cholesterol than the Big and Beefy. - Correct. This conveys that price reduction has forced some consumers to eat burgers. Otherwise consumers would have preferred low cholesterol diet.

B. Reducing fat consumption is the most important factor in improving one’s diet. - Incorrect - Argument speaks about health effects. We know the link between cholesterol and health, but we do not know how diet affect one's health. Moreover is reducing fat consumption the most important factor? Can't say.

C. Burger Land could not have increased sales of the Big and Beefy by reducing its cholesterol content and appealing to health-conscious consumers. - Incorrect - Irrelevant. Talks about sales.

D. Other fast-food companies will not respond to Burger Land’s announcement by reducing the price of their own high-cholesterol burgers. - Incorrect - Irrelevant.

E. Lost revenue due to the price reduction in the Big and Beefy will be offset by an increase in the number of burgers sold. - Incorrect - Irrelevant.

IMO answer is A.

Price reduction can have a negative impact on the health only when the consumers actually consumes the high cholesterol burgers , thus our target is to find an answer where the consumers are actually purchasing/consuming the burgers - Non but option A produces the same.

this one is easy..

Big and beefy price reduction --> nutritionists’ argument (what's the assumption)

A)Some consumers would otherwise have consumed food lower in cholesterol than the B&B -- directly related to the promotion and nutritionists argument (Correct).

B) Reducing fat consumption important - may be (but its not the assumption related to B&B new scheme, nutritionists can't do much if people consume same burgers without the promotion), his concern is related to promotion.

C) -provide alternate scenario or way to achieve sales (not relevant)

D) other fast-food companies... - Do we need to know what others are doing, not related to argument.

E) Lost revenue of Big and Beefy... - nutritionists is concerned with public health, not with B&B revenue.

Answer : A

Can someone help me here?

I thought Using "Some" in A cannot prove it an assumption

And In E we use the statement which implies if we reduce the price there will be more sales hence There will be a negative impact on health, citing cholesterol level of Burger.
E could be the Answer
