Commercial: When it comes to food stains, Encino brand detergent cleans your clothes about as well as any other brand of detergent. When you are dealing with industrial stains, it is a different matter altogether: Encino detergent attacks machine oil stains more forcefully than competing detergents do. So, if you want your clothes to stay as clean as possible, you should buy Encino.

Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument in the commercial?

A Encino detergent cleans grass stains more effectively than most other brands of detergent.

B Many major laundromat chains use Encino detergent to the exclusion of all other brands.

C Encino detergent’s share of the market has been declining since last April.

D Encino detergent, like all other detergents, is less effective at removing some stains than it is at others.

E Encino has a contract with only one warehousing company, which handles all national distribution

The argument concludes that the detergent Encino is best amongst competing detergents. Any statement that provides support to this conclusion will be a strengthener such as other detergents are less efficient at cleaning some other specific type of stain or other detergents do not clean as efficiently as Encino does or some survey data supporting the claim by Encino will be a possible strengthener. With this pre-thinking let us look at the options:

A Encino detergent cleans grass stains more effectively than most other brands of detergent. Goes with our line of pre-thinking. Hold.

B Many major laundromat chains use Encino detergent to the exclusion of all other brands. Not relevant. The laundromat maybe having a contract or may have other reasons such a economic factors for choosing Encino over others. Incorrect.

C Encino detergent’s share of the market has been declining since last April. Out of Scope. Incorrect.

D Encino detergent, like all other detergents, is less effective at removing some stains than it is at others. Compares the detergent's efficiency with it's own self. Incorrect.

E Encino has a contract with only one warehousing company, which handles all national distribution. Irrelevant. Incorrect.

Hence, A.
