Many consumers are concerned about the ecological effects of wasteful packaging. This concern probably explains why stores have been quick to stock new cleaning products that have been produced in a concentrated form. The concentrated form is packaged in smaller containers that use less plastic and require less transportation space.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously undermines the explanation offered?

a.Few consumers believe that containers of concentrated cleaning products are merely small packages of regular cleaning products.
b.The containers in which concentrated cleaning products are packaged are no harder to recycle than those in which regular cleaning products are packaged.
c.Those concentrated cleaning products that are intended to be used diluted have clear instructions for dilution printed on their labels.
d.The smaller containers of concentrated cleaning products enable supermarkets and drugstores to increase their revenues from a given shelf space.
e.Consumer pressure has led to the elimination of wasteful cardboard packaging that was used for compact disks.

1. consumers - concerned about the ecological effects of wasteful packaging
2. Stores - Introduced new cleaning products====> smaller containers , use less plastic & less transportation space.


It might be possible that the Stores introduced the new clearing for their benefits rather than consumers concern of ecological effects.

Hence IMHO (D).
