B. Among subscribers to Systems, the proportion who are under age thirty-five was considerably lower last year than it is now.

C. Most merchandise orders placed in response to advertisements in Systems last year were placed by Systems subscribers over age thirty-five.

D. Last year, the average dollar amount of merchandise orders placed was less for subscribers under age thirty-five than for those age thirty-five or over.

E. Last year many people who placed orders for merchandise in response to advertisements in Systems were not subscribers to the magazine.

My answer is E. Thirty percent of all merchandise orders placed by subscribers in response to advertisements in the magazine last year were placed by subscribers under age thirty-five. Many more orders could have been placed by people who were under 35 (responsing to the ad) but not necessarily subscribers to the magazine.

WHen the advertisers claim that most of the merchandise was ordered by people less than 35, that included both subscribers and non-subscribers. The non-subscribers must be greater than subscribers for this to be valid.
