MixIt, a company that manufactures smoothie-makers, has been manufacturing smoothie-makers as well as spare parts for its products. Since old smoothie-makers develop faults and spare parts are required to fix them, MixIt should continue manufacturing spare parts for its older models in the future.

Which of the following, if true, would best support the recommendation that the company should no longer manufacture spare parts for its models?

A After prolonged use, some of the older models of Mixit smoothie-makers become irreparable.

B Not many manufacturers of smoothie-makers produce spare parts for their older models.

C It is becoming increasingly cheaper to replace a smoothie-maker with a new one than to get it repaired.

D The profit margins in the sales of spare parts are significantly lower than the profit margins in the sales of smoothie-makers.

E Excellent customer service is one of the necessary requirements for a company to be successful in the smoothie-maker

both choice A and D affect the argument/plan but is not decisive on the plan. this type of incorrect is a trap we should know.

i classify it as "affecting but not decisive on argument " incorrect answer.
