E. The number of people in Coponia who smoke cigarettes has remained relatively constant for the past several years.

Negated statement:
E. The number of people in Coponia who smoke cigarettes has not remained relatively constant for the past several years.

The number of people may have increased or decreased but the data given is based on past trends. So how does this effect the conclusion?


Whereas option A is very clear. If companies are ready to lower their profits so that the customers do not have to pay more, then the whole point of decrease in number of customers is gone. People will still buy. Thus I chose option A.
