Main difference between B and E is that B is directly attacking the conclusion which is increasing sales, E is attacking a premise which could lead to decreased sales.

Marketing executive for Magu Corporation: Whenever Magu opens a manufacturing facility in a new city, the company should sponsor, or make donations to, a number of nonprofit organizations in that city. Doing so would improve Magu's image in the community, and thus the money spent on such charitable ventures would lead to increased sales.

Which statement would, if true, point to the most serious weakness in the marketing executive's advice?


Hope it helps!! and let me know if you have any doubts. (A) Magu sells its products internationally, so sales in any one city represent only a small portion of total revenue.- Impact- Increased sale can be miniscule.
(B) Spending on charitable ventures would require Magu to decrease direct advertisements, which are the most effective means of reaching its target customers.- Impact-This answer choice implies that sale may decrease.
(C) If market conditions change, Magu may have to close any such facility or relocate it.- Impact- Till the time falility relocates, sell may increase.
(D) Some nonprofit organizations are poorly organized, so money donated to them would be of little benefit to the community.- Impact- To some organizations donation may not increase sales, but to other organization sales may increase.
(E) If workers at the manufacturing facility believed their wages or working conditions were poor, their complaints would outweigh any good impressions generated by Magu's donations or sponsorships. Impact- Can't assume that denotation will decrease the wages or make working conditions poor. Therefore, this answer choice does not bear any impact on the conclusion.

Post analysing the answer choices, we can clearly see that answer choice B is the best pick. Remember- Correct weaken answer choice does not need to prove the conclusion wrong. Even if the answer creates a doubt, it can be a right answer choice.

GMATNinja Sir, Kindly share your feedback on this analysis.

For the complaints to outweigh good impressions, there must be complaints. We have no information on the existence (or lack thereof) of such complaints so cannot reason about their effect.


Does this mean that in Critical Reasoning questions, answers like E) are wrong simply because we have no information that this will be a reality? If so, I did not know this.

Also, does the same logic apply to C) (i.e. can we reject C) based on the same logic)? C) is also a hypothetical situation for which we have no information about its existence in the question.


Can someone help me out with the above?

Lets analyse the impact both answer choice C and E.

(C) If market conditions change, Magu may have to close any such facility or relocate it.- Impact- Till the time falility relocates, sell may increase.

(E) If workers at the manufacturing facility believed their wages or working conditions were poor, their complaints would outweigh any good impressions generated by Magu's donations or sponsorships. Impact- Can't assume that denotation will decrease the wages or make working conditions poor. Therefore, this answer choice does not bear any impact on the conclusion.

Let me know if you still have any doubts.
