One of these movies, the movie starring Ty Fields, however, earned more on opening day than any previous Ty Fields movie had earned on its premiere.

Can't the text in bold imply that the answer is C?

Hi Gunner,

Let me see if I can help..

Point 1 from passage: All 5 films did worse than expected
Point 2 from passage: Ty Fields had his best opening day

There is nothing in these 2 points, to say that other movie stars could not have had their best day ever (albeit worse than predicted)

Your words in bold do not make this necessarily the case either, this passage just talks about one film - there is nothing to say it could not equally have mentioned another film with the movie star also having their best opening day

Does that help?

Given data :
Five feature films released and all the five feature films generated revenues lesser than expected,

A movie starred by Tyfields generated more revenue than his previous movies (still revenue generated was less than expected) so the expected revenue of Tyfields current movie was higher than any of his previous movies.

Option D gives this conclusion.

INFORMATION GIVEN IN THE STIMULUS:-
Five movies were released. All earned less money then the executive predicted. TY's movie earned more than all his previous films on premiere.

Lets say the five movies , their estimated earning and their actual earning as as follows

Jungle Boy (starring Clive Ovan) {estimated earning 40 Million} {actual earning 18 Million}
The man who fought the invisible demons (starring Leo Caprio) {estimated earning 44 Million} {actual earning 23 Million}
Tin-Man: Universe Colliding (Bob Downy Jr.) }estimated earning 100 Million} {actual earning 78 Million}
Blessings from heaven (Starring Meryl Steam) {estimated earning 21 Million} {actual earning 7 Million}
Funny Cops -3 (Starring Ty Fields) {estimated earning 33 Million} {actual earning 28 Million} (Before this movie none of the TY Field's movies earned 28 million on premiere.. His highest earning was Funny Cops 2 which earned 21 Million. )


Based on this info what can you say for sure
C. Ty Fields was the only actor whose movie earned more on opening day than any of his previous films had earned on their premieres.(28 million )>21 million

One of these movies, the movie starring Ty Fields, however, earned more on opening day than any previous Ty Fields movie had earned on its premiere.

If the above statements are true, which of the following can be properly concluded on the basis of them?

A. Movie executives were less accurate in their predictions of the amount the Ty Fields film would earn on opening day than with predictions for other movies opening that day.
B. Ty Fields' movie earned more on July 4 than did any of the other movies opening that day.
C. Ty Fields was the only actor whose movie earned more on opening day than any of his previous films had earned on their premieres.
D. The amount movie executives predicted that this Ty Fields movie would earn on opening day was higher than any previous Ty Fields movie had earned on its premiere.
E. The movie executives' prediction for the Ty Fields movie was higher than their predictions for other movies opening July 4.

OE is not very clear.
