Most people who ride bicycles for pleasure do not ride until the warm weather of spring and summer arrives. Yet it is probably more effective to advertise bicycles earlier in the year. Most bicycles are purchased in the spring, but once shoppers are ready to shop for a bicycle, they usually have already decided which brand and model of bicycle they will purchase. By then it is generally too late to induce them to change their minds.

The main point of the argument is that

(A) bicycle advertisements are probably more effective if they appear before the arrival of warm spring weather
(B) most bicycle purchasers decide on the brand and model of bicycle that they will buy before beginning to shop for a bicycle
(C) more bicycles are purchased in the spring than at any other time of year
(D) in general, once a bicycle purchaser has decided which bicycle he or she intends to purchase, it is difficult to bring about a change in that decision
(E) spring and summer are the time of year in which bicycle riding as a leisure activity is most popula

Straight A. The main point of the argument is that Most of the buyers decide beforehand shopping for bicycles. Hence if they need to be convinced it needs to be done before this decision which happen during warmer spring.

the answer should be A , as we can conclude that the if the bicycles were to appear before the spring then the more probability that they would have been bought ,
option B is tempting but as it is just the stimulus says so can't be concluded .

B,C,D - are premises, mentioned in the stimulus.
A - is a reasonable inference, as advertisements launched before spring would affect people's choice on a concrete model of bicycle, thus bicycle's manufacturers would benefit from it.
