Manager: Our company's mail-order sales have recently increased 25 percent. This increase started around the time we started offering unlimited free shipping, rather than just free shipping on orders over $50. Thus, our change in policy probably caused the increase.

Which one of the following, if true, most strengthens
the manager's argument?

(A) Mail-order sales have been decreasing for
companies that do not offer unlimited free
shipping.
(B) The company did not widely advertise its
change in policy.
(C) The company's profits from mail-order sales
have increased since the change in policy.
(D) The company's change in policy occurred well
after its competitors started offering unlimited
free shipping.
(E) Most companies offer free shipping only on
mail-order purchases over $50.
