4. Analyst: The pace of technological development brings a constant stream of new devices to the market, and many of them enjoy commercial success.
But announcing new technology too soon after the introduction of a successful device can backfire. .
Once consumers hear about the new device, they may stop buying the one currently on sale.
So, if a company wishes to announce the upcoming sale of a new device, it should wait until purchases of the old device have begun to decline.
Assumption: As soon as the devices r released media publishes the news of release which consumer eventually hears.

Which of the following, if true, would best support the analyst’s main assertion?

• New technology often becomes less expensive after an initial surge in sales.
• Media outlets, such as television programs and magazines, often report on the planned introduction of new devices while the sales of old devices are still strong.
• Many consumers are unable to determine whether new technology is superior to current technology.
• Surveys have shown that some consumers make only one or two technology purchases per year, whereas others make more frequent purchases.
• Consumers tend to be loyal to technology companies whose products they enjoy using.

Am I wrong in selecting E as the answer? If the consumers aren't loyal then an introduction of new technology by a competitor is likely to decline the slaes anyhow. In that case analyst's asertion falls apart.
