Ernesto: Sales of VCRs—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?

(A) He cites evidence that, if true, disproves
the evidence cited by Ernesto in drawing
his conclusion.
(B) He points out a gap in the logic followed
by Ernesto in drawing his conclusion.
(C) He cites an issue ignored by Ernesto and
which outweighs the issues raised by
Ernesto.
(D) 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.
(E) 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.

(A) He cites evidence that, if true, disproves the evidence cited by Ernesto in drawing his conclusion.
No - this evidence does not disprove Ernesto.

(B) He points out a gap in the logic followed by Ernesto in drawing his conclusion.
No gap in logic referred to

(C) He cites an issue ignored by Ernesto and which outweighs the issues raised by Ernesto. The issue is ignored by Ernesto, but it doesn't outweigh the issues he raised

(D) 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 mention of other leisure-related products.

(E) 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.
This seems to be the only possibility

Ernesto said the VCR player sales will decline. He ignores the fact that 6 vhs tapes are released every month, and because there are so many movies relelased every month there is no need to think that VHS tape sales will drop. But, the argument is about VHS player, not the tape, therefore the players will drop in sales since everybody will have, and people will just continue to buy VHS tapes.

A & B are very much like that proves my suspicion that fault party here is Milton not Ernesto.
Only E seems bit relevant.
