Cruncho cookies have twice as much flavor for your money as Choco cookies, and we show you how. A single Cruncho cookie is twice as large as a single Choco 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 Choco contains twice as many cookies as a packet of Cruncho at the same price.
(II) Choco has more concentrated flavor than Cruncho.
(III) Despite being double in size a Cruncho cookie weighs only 50% as much as a Choco Cookie.

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

confused between A and C.

Since, weight does not matter in flavor, III is irrelevant.
Even if the flavor is more concentrated in Choco, but if this concentration is not double, then this option will not weaken the argument.

Hence, I will go for A.

IMO C

(I ) states that a packet of Choco contains twice as many cookies as a packet of Cruncho at the same price. This means the total quantity of cookies in both the packets is the same. Therfore they will have the same flavour for the money spent.

(II) Choco has more concentrated flavour. This actually disproves the statement " the larger the cookie, the more the flavour" . If the flavour is concentrated in one of the brands it may have the same flavour for the money spent.

(III) Weight is immaterial.

Whats the OA

I think it should be B.
(III) does not weaken the argument as it does not mention "weigh".

I vote A.

Correct.

(II) Choco has more concentrated flavor than Cruncho.

What does concentrated flavor mean? That's another assumption we have to make.

(III) Despite being double in size a Cruncho cookie weighs only 50% as much as a Choco Cookie.

[color=#FF0000]Weight its irrelevant in my mind.

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

I think the term concentration in 2 is related to the wieght also. Only then 3 can be included in the ans.

what kind of a Q is this? Just sounds ridiculous.

Weight does not matter larger the better flavor??

On the face of it in a day to day life all 3 will undermine. But this is gmat and if the Q says larger causes flavor, only larger causes flavor. we cannot assume that equal weight or more weight causes more flavor.
