Landline telephone sales are declining and will no longer exist in a few decades. This is because almost everyone has cellular service or is able to rely on computer systems for their personal needs. Even in workplaces, landlines are becoming obsolete.

The argument depends on which of the following?


A. Landlines will no longer be necessary for any reason aside from personal or business communication.

B. Personal landlines no longer exist.

C. Workplaces are the only realm in which landlines are used.

D. Pre-installed landlines will be eliminated.

E. Landline sales have been declining for several years now.

IMHO it is A

negate A---> Landlines will be necessary for other reasons aside from personal or business communication.

This weakens the conclusion

The argument used by the author for the extinction of LL - Reliance on (A) cellular service and (B) computer systems
Support for extinction: Acceptance of Cellular & Comp system for (1) Personal and (2) Official Use.

Option (A) rules out the possibility of use of LL for any other use apart from Personal and Official use, thus correct Answer must be (A)
