Answer is A.

A. Indicating that the reason the drug manufacturer offers for relaxing the guidelines conflicts with the manufacturer's presumed motive for presenting the image of a physician in the advertisement.

This gets at the very heart of the contradiction that the TV exec is pointing out. Presumably, the drug manufacturer wants a "doctor" in the ad to give credibility to his recommendation. But if, as the drug manufacturer suggests, most of the audience will realize it's not a doctor, then of course what that actor/doctor says loses most of its credibility. That's the big contradiction that the TV exec points outs. This is why (A) is correct.

A good approach is to look at words from both sides. Clearly, D is wrong because there is no goal in the conversation.
C, E are out.
B is not what is addressed in the argument.
A is left.

Hi experts,
I am not able to understand how the manufacturer is conflicting his opinion for option A. Can someone break that answer choice as per the argument and convey its meaning

Dear Anazeer,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

With all due respect, my friend, what you have asked here is not a high quality question. You simply tell us what you are not able to understand. What is your understanding of the entire argument? Are there words or phrases used that you don't understand? An excellent question makes clear every aspect of what you understand and what you don't understand. Read this blog post carefully:
Asking Excellent Questions
Part of asking an excellent question is proactively taking advantage of all the resources at your disposal--something you will be expected to do all the time when you are a manager. My friend, I have a few posts on this thread in which I have already written quite a bit. I am going to challenge you to read everything I have written here and then, taking all this into account, ask a detailed & specific question, the best possible question you can ask.

If you do that, I will be happy to answer it.

Mike :-)

GMATNinja @VeristasKarishma

If the audience can realize the physician is an actor, Why does the drug manufacturer
conclude "therefore, networks should relax their guidelines to permit our company to broadcast this advertisement"

I didn't get why this conclusion is made.

How is A the right answer??
How do I eliminate other answer choices?
