In an extensive study of the reading habits of magazine subscribers, it was found that an average of between four and five people actually read each copy of the most popular weekly news magazine. On this basis, we estimate that the 12.000 copies of Poets and Poetry that are sold each month are actually read by 48.000 to 60.000 people.

The estimate above assumes that

A. individual magazine readers generally enjoy more than one type of magazine
B. most of the readers of Poets and Poetry subscribe to the magazine
C. the ratio of readers to copies is the same for Poets and Poetry as for the weekly new magazine
D. the number of readers of the weekly news magazine is similar to the number of readers of Poets and Poetry
E. most readers enjoy sharing copies of their favorite magazines with friends and family members.

The author seems to be saying that because X works for Y, X will also work for Z. C is the only that fills this logic gap, which says that Y = Z and thus the conclusion is valid. Do you have the OA?
