D for me. . . C seems to imply a monetary rather than moral reason for the change

C for me. If they are withdrawing the ads and losing the money at that, it must be a moral reason.

I am torn between C & D but can't decide the right answer. Over-analyzing it might give an answer but don't think it is a true GMATy type question as GMAT questions will almost always have exactly only one sentence that would strengthen the conclusion and I can easily see two choices doing the same over here.

I agree with razorback , C should be the answer .. while C and D are probable choices , Find below the Comparison of the two -

C.The advertisers, when questioned, admitted that their clients would lose revenue as a result of the advertisements being withdrawn. This ultimately means that the advertisers will lose revenue .. so their choice to withdraw indicates a moral responsibility
D.The advertisers all placed new advertisements with other publications that emphasised family values.- There can be other reasons for their placing new advertisements which emphais family values .. May be the existing trend of the target audience is one that prefers family values..

I hope its clear :)

As a reference there is a similar problem in OG12 i suppose which talks about TV channels and elections.

It has to be D.

There is nothing that will point to anything related to MORAL VALUES in C.

C is a better one here as the advertisers might just have placed their ads in magazines with family values ( as narrated in D) by sheer popularity among target customers or any other reason. Their moral inclination to place advertisements is only justified by C which mentions that the companies are sticking with their decision even when they are going to incur losses.

Which of the following, if true, would strengthen this conclusion?

A.The advertisers regularly review the placement of their advertisements.

C.The advertisers, when questioned, admitted that their clients would lose revenue as a result of the advertisements being withdrawn.
D.The advertisers all placed new advertisements with other publications that emphasised family values.
E.A survey of the readership of Magazine X suggested that the majority of the readership think that the standard of the magazine's contents had falled since its transformation.

For D, i think it states "new advertisements".... it does not convey the intended meaning that same advertisements were replaced..

hmmm ... Most of the explanation that are pointing towards C in this thread are like they got to know the OA and somehow trying their mind to believe that answer should be C.

:( .. this is a debatable question.

This is GMAT Pill CR Framework #4 Exclusive Negation

The argument is that "morality" was the only thing governing the advertiser's decision to withdraw their ads from the magazine.

So the framework says to put it like this:
Argument: "morality" --> exclusively leads to --> withdraw ads
Negation: "other factors" --> did not affect --> withdraw ads

(C) brings up a factor "financial reasons" and discounts financial reasons as a possible factor in affecting the decision to withdraw ads. If withdrawing ads was a financial BENEFIT, then they may have decided to withdraw ads based on financial reasons. But (C) clearly states that by withdrawing, there would be a financial DISBENEFIT. As a result, it cannot possibly be the case that "financial reasons" (an example of "other factors") affected the decision to withdraw ads.

(C) is an example of the negation and thus helps strengthen. GMATPill Framework #4 Exclusive Negation successfully conquers this question.

With (D) signing up for other publications that value family -- this does not necessarily mean they did it for moral reasons. They may have done it for financial reasons primarily. (D) works but (C) is stronger.

does favor the conclusion But hey this one stands out with the most postive impact with a well hit negative blow - i am losing money but I will stick to a stand, means i have a moral stand, click ( trying to remind one to be careful still)
D.The advertisers all placed new advertisements with other publications that emphasised family values.

proves our assessment was correct but that art of the argument was already complete
E.A survey of the readership of Magazine X suggested that the majority of the readership think that the standard of the magazine's contents had falled since its transformation.

This one back to so many right choices to weigh. C it is.

Hey, but it's not the advertising company that is losing money but its clients are. So there is no loss to them is there? Unless we are expected to assume that clients will pay lesser fees to advertising companies when the former loses revenue.

I saw this question in some forum and OA is D

Here are the explanations too

A: This is irrelevant to the question of moral propriety.

B: This doesn't necessarily point to moral propriety directly. Don't make unnecessary connections!

C: Once again, no correlation to what we're talking about

->D: If this is true, then it shows that the agencies care about where their ads go. Hence correct.

E: This is about the magazine. Not the advertisers.

-- My answer is D too since that is what is helping the argument.

I disagree with C, it says clients will loose revenue by withdrawing but does not say the advertising companies loose the money or loose profits. It could so happen that they loose few clients and due to withdrawal they get more other customers.

In Option D, advertising companies are stick to their moral values and hence opted to move to other option. This shows advertising companies have some sense of morality rather than profit mind.
