Crunch-o cookies have twice as much flavor for your money as Choc-o cookies, and we show you how. A single Crunch-o cookie is twice as large as a single Choc-o cookie, and the larger the cookie, the more the flavor.
Which of the following, if true, would undermine the persuasive appeal of the above advertisement?
(I) A packet of Choc-o contains twice as many cookies as a packet of Crunch-o at the same price.
(II) Choc-o has more concentrated flavor than Crunch-o.
(III) Despite being double in size a Crunch-o cookie weighs only 50% as much as a Choc-o Cookie.

(A) I only
(B) II only
(C) I and II only
(D) II and III only
(E) I, II and III


I'm going with D on this one. Both II and III weaken the claim

Please let us know the OA will ya?

Thanks
Cheers!

Should be D IMO
Argument says a single Crunch- o cookie has twice the flavor of a single Choc- o cookie . This fact is proven by the larger size of Crunch-O.
option 1) Compares the number of cookies in packet , so this cannot undermine the argument, with regards to with whose flavor is more.
2) Although Crunch-o has a larger size , Choc-o has more concentrated flavor. This definitely undermines the argument.
3)Weight of Crunch-o is only half of that Choc-o again this definitely undermines the argument, in effect this states that Crunch-o is more hollow. So don't be fooled by Crunch-o's larger size.
