Don't wider range of materials mean more material and more challenging materials mean there could be same amount of more challenging materials, not necessary more materials themself?

Quote:
5. According to the passage, the existence of good one-volume reference works about Asian Americans could result in
(A) increased agreement among professors of Asian American studies regarding the quality of the sources available in their field
(B) an increase in the number of students signing up for introductory courses in Asian American studies
(C) increased accuracy in writings that concern Asian American history and culture
(D) the use of introductory texts about Asian American history and culture in courses outside the field of Asian American studies
(E) the inclusion of a wider range of Asian American material in introductory reading lists in Asian American studies

A "wider range of materials" doesn't necessarily mean "more" materials. The "range" of the materials can simply refer to the scope of those materials. If all of the materials are relatively simple, then those materials will have a relatively narrow scope or range. If the professors decide to include more challenging materials, then it's likely that the materials will cover a broader range of content/topics/etc.

In other words, including more challenging materials will likely increase the RANGE of the materials, regardless of what happens to the total number of materials.

More importantly, the question asks, "... the existence of good one-volume reference works about Asian Americans could result in..." So even if it's theoretically POSSIBLE to include more challenging materials WITHOUT including a wider range of materials, choice (E) still works. We are not looking for something that MUST be true.

I hope that helps!
