### HideShow timer Statistics

Ernesto: Sales of VCR's—videocassette recorders—will decline in the next few years because the saturation level among U.S. households has virtually been reached.

Milton: Every year a greater number of popular feature films is released on cassette—at least 6 per month. Clearly VCR sales will remain constant, if not rise.

Which of the following is the best logical evaluation of Milton's response to Ernesto's argument?

He cites evidence that, if true, disproves the evidence cited by Ernesto in drawing his conclusion.
He points out a gap in the logic followed by Ernesto in drawing his conclusion.
He cites an issue ignored by Ernesto and which outweighs the issues raised by Ernesto.
He does not speak to Ernesto's point because he fails to raise the issue of whether VCR sales may be linked to sales of other leisure-related products.
He fails to respond to Ernesto's argument because he assumes that nothing will significantly retard the sale of VCR's, which was the issue that Ernesto raised.

E. Sales of VCR has nothing to do with how many movies are released for VCR.

got this one wrong

My paraphrase of the answer was that "Milton introduces a factor that was missed by Ernesto, and this new factor affects the conclusion made by Ernesto"

C matched with my paraphrase: "introduces an issue ignored by Ernesto... ", so I chose C. But the other half of C may not be justified: "which outweighs the issues raised by Ernesto."

E was not clearly visible to me as a contender, so had to look over it again after learning the OA. And what E states is true in fact. )

Hi Rajiv,

"He does not speak to Ernesto's point because he fails to raise the issue of whether VCR sales may be linked to sales of other leisure-related products."

No part of argument, even Ernesto never mention about sales of other leisure-related products.
