Manufacturers of household appliances are still urging the public to purchase food processors. The various manufacturersтАЩ advertisements all point out that the prices of these appliances are now lower than ever and that each food processor comes with a lifetime service warranty. In addition, many manufacturers offer sizable rebates to customers who purchase food processors within a given time period. With these incentives, the advertisements contend, people can hardly afford not to purchase food processors.
(A) Whether the cost of repairs to the food processors over the years will cancel out the savings currently being offered
(B) Whether potential customers have enough uses for food processors to justify purchasing them
(C) Whether the heads of the companies manufacturing food processors own food processors themselves
(D) Whether the food processors currently being advertised will be outdated within the next five years
(E) Whether accessories and replacement parts will be readily available at retail outlets

My question is that I can't realize what its question need ?
Could you tell me the meaning in simple words?

Is another way to ask "Which answer choice as an issue that the manufacturer doesn't discuss"?

Or, even more simply, "Which of these answerss do the manufacturers not discuss"?

English is a bitch.

B seems to be the most reasonable answer.

A is "addressed" in that the processor has a life time service warranty.

C is absurd...

E... Maybe a problem, but its not as important..again...the processors have a lifetime warranty..so E may not be necessarily a problem

the most logical thing missing in the argument is that the manufacturer does not mention HOW and IN what ways can the food processor can be used...if the Food processor can simplify a lot of work, it will be more
attractive to the consumers
