### HideShow timer Statistics

Searton is the sole manufacturer of Re-geared Display Video (RDV) disks. RDV disks can only be played on RDV players, which are essentially DVD players with RDV attachments. Between 2007 and 2009, Searton opened 500 new kiosks to sell its RDV disks. However, since the number of RDV players sold in this period (2007-2009) did not increase significantly, it is likely that the number of users who have started using RDV disks has not increased significantly.

Which of the following, if true, most weakens the above argument?

A Many of the 500 kiosks served people who owned an RDV player but did not have access to RDV disks.
B Most movies are now released on both RDV disks and DVDs.
C Standard DVD players that do not have the RDV attachment are unable to decipher the content on RDV disks.
D Searton’s sales team has a record-breaking track record as it almost always meets its targets.
EMany existing users of RDV players prefer using RDV disks to DVDs as RDV disks offer better picture quality than DVDs.

Let's break down argument..
RDV disk can be played only on RDV player..
500 distribution/sale point opened..
Sale of RDV player has not increased significantly so number of people who have started using disk has not improved significantly..

Now A is the ONLY one close by..
It says that people buying disk from these 500 kiosks already possessed RDV player but did not have disk..

but word STARTING in conclusion is slightly confusing..
Very difficult to believe someone buying RDV player but not the disk and waiting for disk to come at later stage.

But then we are to take the argument as it is..

Ans A
