“Our House” restaurant is eliminating table-service from its casual dining restaurant in favor of prepared dinner boxes. The restaurant already fills every available seat during its operating hours, and the change to a dinner-box style will not reduce the available seats. Nonetheless, the restaurant's management expects revenue to increase as a result of the switch to the prepared dinner boxes without any concurrent change in revenue per customer or operating hours.

Which of the following, if true, provides the best reason for the expectation?

(A) One of the dinner boxes takes up less storage space than the space taken up by one of the large dishes typically used when serving table-service customers

(B) Diners eating out of a dinner box typically do not linger over dinner as long as diners who are served via standard table-service.

(C) Since the restaurant will eliminate table service for only part of the restaurant, it can continue to accommodate customers who do not wish to eat out of prepared
dinner boxes.

(D) Few diners are likely to avoid the restaurant because of the new dinner-box style.

(E) The restaurant eliminating table-service would otherwise have to hire new waitors and waitresses at a greater expense due to new city regulations on wage

Background: “Our House” restaurant is eliminating table-service from its casual dining restaurant in favor of prepared dinner boxes.

Counter-premise: The restaurant already fills every available seat during its operating hours, and the change to a dinner-box style will not reduce the available seats.

Conclusion: Nonetheless, the restaurant's management expects revenue to increase as a result of the switch to the prepared dinner boxes without any concurrent change in revenue per customer or operating hours.

Which of the following, if true, provides the best reason for the expectation?

(A) One of the dinner boxes takes up less storage space than the space taken up by one of the large dishes typically used when serving table-service customers. Off-topic. Because the restaurant already fills every available seat during its operating hours, space saving is largely off-topic. Beside, the conclusion is about revenue increase.

(B) Diners eating out of a dinner box typically do not linger over dinner as long as diners who are served via standard table-service. This statement suggests that either the restaurant costs may be lower or the number of customers to be served may increase. Either way the total revenues are bound to increase. This helps strengthen the conclusion.

(C) Since the restaurant will eliminate table service for only part of the restaurant, it can continue to accommodate customers who do not wish to eat out of prepared dinner boxes. That's true, but this will not lead to an increase in revenues.

(D) Few diners are likely to avoid the restaurant because of the new dinner-box style. There is no information about this.

(E) The restaurant eliminating table-service would otherwise have to hire new waitors and waitresses at a greater expense due to new city regulations on wage. Off-topic newinformation

My answer : B

The option states that average time spend by customer is reduced with new strategy, hence total number of customers within the same time is increased, hence the revenue.
