OK ..the conflict is between A and D

Negate A - Even if the GDP does not decrease , the conclusion will stand because adverse affect on the industry may not SHRINK the GDP..

Negate D - the conclusion will not stand...

If you like my post, consider giving me a kudos. THANKS!

I will go with option D. Reason -- option D negates the possibility of an alternate cause being responsible for the declining profits of the companies.

It eliminates any alternate route to explain the conclusion of the argument and hence there exists only one route which is mentioned in the argument itself.

what is the source ?? I m intrigued.

D- can not be correct as profits could be reduced or stabilized because of XYZ factors.

E- Irrelevant.

B- Irrelevant.

by POE - A. But still I m not convinced with A as large portion could be counterbalanced by other factors.

It's Princeton. I chose A, because I do not believe in the statements such as "...if I scored 800 on The GMAT, then... " or "...if I were a son of a Fortune 500 CEO...". Yes, I understand the logic of D, but I think that since it's can not predicted FOR SURE, it looks like a card-reading guessing.

Does anybody agree with me or I think tooo much?

What is the oA?

Take my advice. Stop unofficial sources for verbal. do both the official guides and if you still feel more hunger for the CR/RC do LSAT sets.
