Last year three automobile manufacturers—Honda, Toyota, and Suzuki—launched new models of their respective sedans in Japan. The three models that were launched were similarly priced and had similar features. However, the sales of Suzuki’s new sedan have been far lower than those of Honda and Toyota’s new sedans in the past one year.

The statements above best support which of the following as a conclusion?

(A) The people in Japan prefer cars manufactured by Toyota and Honda to those manufactured by Suzuki.

(B) The people in Japan do not like cars manufactured by Suzuki.

(C) Cars manufactured by Suzuki are notorious for their flimsy build quality and poor fuel efficiency.

(D) In the last one year, Suzuki has earned less revenues from the sale of its new sedan than have Honda and Toyota.

(E) Suzuki manufactures its cars primarily for the export market and not for domestic sale.

Argument analysis:
1. Three biggies launched car models in Japan.
2. same price and similar features of all three models
3. But, sales of Suzuki’s lower vs other two

conclusion questions can be treated as inference questions. So any answer that is mostly reworded version of above arguments shall win.

(A) The people in Japan prefer cars manufactured by Toyota and Honda to those manufactured by Suzuki. - "prefer" - we dont know what do they prefer. not enough info given

(B) The people in Japan do not like cars manufactured by Suzuki. - thats not true. the sale, however, less, still is sale.

(C) Cars manufactured by Suzuki are notorious for their flimsy build quality and poor fuel efficiency. - nope, not given in argument.

(D) In the last one year, Suzuki has earned less revenues from the sale of its new sedan than have Honda and Toyota.- yes. this is the reworded argument.

(E) Suzuki manufactures its cars primarily for the export market and not for domestic sale. - not relevant.

Background: 3 manufacturers launched a new automobile model
Premises:
+Similar price & features of 3 models
+However, the sales of Suzuki is lower than the other two manufacturers.
A. Out of scope
B. Out of scope
C. A real-world trap answer that is somewhat true in a real-world but it's not surely true in this context.
D. The stated info about revenue derives from the sales info from a chain of premises.--->It must be true since it has strongly base from given info.
E. Out of scope

We have enough evidence to conclude what is mentioned in statement D.

Everything beyond that is a reach based on the information provided.

I don't know why D is the correct answer because revenue means selling price-cost price And we know all cars have same price that doesn't means that all cars have same cost price. Then we can say that may be toyota and honda sold 100 cars, with the cost price of 500,000 whereas suzuki sold 90 cars with the price of 200,000 so revenue is more for suzuki than toyota and honda. Hence we can't conclude that or infer that Please reply if i am wrong.

I think you got your equations mixed up

Revenue = Price * Volume

The equation you mentioned would give us the profit. ;)

Hope this helps to clarify this question.
