### HideShow timer Statistics

Mourdet Winery: Danville Winery's new wine was introduced to compete with our most popular wine, which is sold in a distinctive tall, black bottl. Danville uses a similar bottl. Thus, it is likely that many customers intending to buy our wine will mistakenly buytheirs instead.

Danville Winery: Not so. The two bottles can be readily distinguished: the label on ours, but not on theirs, is gold colored.

Which if the following, if true, most undermines Danville Winery's response.

(A) Gold is the background color on the label of many of the wines produced by Danville Winery.

(B) When the bottles are viewed side by side, dabville Winery's bottle is perceptibly taller than Mourdet Winery's.

(c) Danville Winery, unlike Mourdet Winery, displays its wine's label prominently in advertisements.

(D) It is common for occasional purchasers to buy a bottle of wine on the basis of a general impression of the most obvious feature of the bottle

(E) Many popular wines are soldin bottles of a standard design.

D)...the most obvious feature of the bottle is its size and its color. in this case the label is more like a detail.

why is it not C? If the Mourdet Winery doesn't show the label promptly in their ad it gives all the more reason for people to mistake Danville's bottles for Moudet.

I will go with C.
Sine Mourdet Winery does not have distinctive labels, their customers are more likely to buy their wine based on shape of the bottle. If Danville Winery uses same shape then customers can be tricked into buying the wrong brand.

I rejected D on the basis that "obvious" could be relative term. Who is to say shape is obvious or label?

C isnt undermining Danville's claim; I believe it actually strengthens it.

I think the arguement wording here is not correct. As per the arguement,

' Thus, it is likely that many customers intending to buy our wine will mistakenly buytheirs instead....'

Here the talk is about many customers.

As per option D - 'It is common for occasional purchasers....' - We are talking about occasional purchasers which implies NOT MANY.

Then how can this option weaken the response as there is no contradiction??

I have also seen some questions which just doesnot make sense. Not sure if this is also one of them

Any thoughts?
