4. Our tomato soup provides good nutrition: for instance, a warm bowl of it contains more units of vitamin C than does a serving of apricots or fresh carrots!

The advertisement is misleading if which one of the following is true?

(A) Few people depend exclusively on apricots and carrots to supply vitamin C to their diets.
(B) A liquid can lose vitamins if it stands in contact with the air for a protracted period of time.
(C) Tomato soup contains important nutrients other than vitamin C.
(D) The amount of vitamin C provided by a serving of the advertised soup is less than the amount furnished by a serving of fresh strawberries.
(E) Apricots and fresh carrots are widely known to be nutritious, but their contribution consists primarily in providing a large amount of vitamin A, not a large amount of vitamin C.

E

The argument is Tomata soup is nutritious becos it has more Vit C than serving of apricots or fresh carrots. Apricots or carrots might be the wrong comparison to make.

I vote for E.

D-is not correct as it adds an another dimension, a serving in constrast to a bowl, which we can ignore and still see green in the ad claim.

I'll be the devil's advocate and vote for B

conclusion: tomato soup provides good nutrition

premis: warm bowl of it contains more vitamin C than a serving of apricot/carrots

the conclusion is not reached if it stands in contact for too long.

E only talks about apricot and carrots, totally ignoring the conclusion.

good point TooLegitToQuit.

However, I think B is out because it doesn’t say how long a “protracted period of timeâ€

E should be. You cannot compare 2 things when they are not comparable.
