Which of the choices most logically completes the following argument?

Mechanical Engineering Quarterly, though it remains the most prestigious academic journal dedicated to mechanical engineering, has recently experienced diminishing submissions for publication. A number of engineers interested in publication have been submitting their papers to another journal that, having lower editorial standards, accepts more papers for publication than Mechanical Engineering Quarterly, which has some of the highest editorial standards in the industry. In order to increase submissions and thus increase the likelihood of publishing interesting findings, Mechanical Engineering Quarterly’s board of directors has suggested radically increasing the number of papers published. However, this suggestion has a serious drawback, because ...

A) many prominent mechanical engineers submit papers to both journals

B) one reason submissions to Mechanical Engineering Quarterly decreased is that its competitor is more likely to feature papers on machine recessing

C) the many engineers who submit to Mechanical Engineering Quarterly for its strict editorial standards will no longer have a reason to do so

D) at the moment, Mechanical Engineering Quarterly only has print space to publish roughly five percent of the submissions it receives

E) Mechanical Engineering Quarterly’s rival journal would receive far fewer submissions if Mechanical Engineering Quarterly increased its editorial standards
