Re: Connie: This season, new episodes of my favorite television program [#permalink]
IMO A
Basically Karl refutes Connie by saying this years television program is not popular as last.
He basis this theory on some other hypothesis.
If I insert Choice A as a sentence into Karl’s reasoning it would look somewhat like this “ I disagree. Since television network do rerun of their old shows, and since also What Connie this entertaining is not true of the general view as well, this season is not popular”

B in my opinion is too broad and general in my opinion. All others options are out of scope or go against Karl.

Official Explanation

Karl’s response relies on two alternative but inter-related assumptions: (1) the reruns are likely to be popular enough to compete with Connie’s favorite program, and (2) Connie’s favorite program will not in fact be popular.

Choice (E) provides evidence that helps affirm both of these assumptions by suggesting that the reruns might very well be popular enough to draw the viewing audience away from Connie’s favorite program, thus rendering it less popular. Admittedly, choice (E) would provide even greater support if it explicitly indicated that one popular program can draw viewers away from another. Nevertheless, choice (E) is the best among the five answer choices.
