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.

Two things could be compared if those two thing are in common. The company's claim could be true if there is any evidence shows that the new policy has a good effect on company's mail-order sales, or shows that other companies that implement this new policy also enjoy increase in mail-order sales.

Only A conveys this comparision so A is the correct answer. Other choices are irrelevant to the argument.
