Radio Advertising -> Maximum Name and Recognition
Cause -> Effect

For maximum name recognition a candidate need not spend on media channels other than radio advertising.

For the effect to occur the cause alone is enough.

all parts in red are just new information not supported by the argument.
Only D remains.

The answer is not B because the question stem does not mention anything about votes. D is correct because if radio advertising gives maximum name and recognition then nothing else would hence it does not make logical sense to spend on other media channels.

Hope it helps. Please Kudos if you like the explanation :).

E is wrong because E mentioned "little" rather than "comparatively little than effect of radio advertisement" right?

A mathematical approach here. In mathematical logic there is a rule for logical deduction.

If A implies B the NOT B always implies NOT A.

So, in this question, if an answer was presented that not getting maximum name and recognition implies the candidate did not buy the saturation radio advertising, that would have been the best answer. However, we don't have that here. Also, note that this is an inference question. In inference question, the correct answer choice MUST BE TRUE. And outside information is usually not appreciated in inference questions. With this understanding, let's move on to the answer choices.

A. Radio advertising is the most important factor in political campaigns in Los Angeles. Outside information presented. The question mentions nothing about the relative importance of diff. factors. Hence Out of Scope.
B. Maximum name recognition in Los Angeles will help a candidate to win a higher percentage of votes cast in the city. Though this is logical in our common world, the question doesn't introduce any such information. Hence for the context of the passage, it is an OUTSIDE INFO. Hence incorrect.
C. Saturation radio advertising reaches every demographically distinct sector of the voting population of Los Angeles. Reach is not described, outside info, so eliminate it
D. For maximum name recognition a candidate need not spend on media channels other than radio advertising. Yes, this need not be true. The passage only mention one of the possibilities, but it doesn't say it is the only possibility. Hence it is a MUST BE TRUE Choice. And indeed the correct one.
E. A candidate's record of achievement in the Los Angeles area will do little to affect his or her name recognition there. The contribution to name and recognition is not discussed, hence can't be inferred

Hope this helps.

Cheers!

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



D

An LA political candidate who buys saturation radio advertising will get maximum name recognition. In other words, such advertising is sufficient for maximum name recognition. If so, then it must be true that, as (D) says, a candidate can get such recognition without spending on other forms of media.

(A) suggests that radio advertising is the most important factor in L.A. political campaigns, but nothing like this was mentioned in the stimulus, so it's not inferable. Nor were we told the specific results of attaining maximum name recognition, so (B) is out. Similarly, we don't know precisely what is meant by "saturation radio advertising," so we can't infer anything as detailed as (C). Finally, although we know saturation radio advertising is sufficient for getting maximum name recognition, we can't infer that other things, such as the candidate's record mentioned in (E), have little effect on name recognition.
