Shareholders and investment analysts have criticized the Vista Products Company for having slow and outdated computer systems in its factories when these systems are compared to Vista's competitor's systems. However, a Vista representative has claimed that such criticism is unfair. The representative noted that Vista spent more money last year per factory upgrading its computer systems than any of its competitors did.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously discredits the reasoning in the company representative's argument?

a. Overall spending per factory on computer systems is lower in Vista Product's industry than in other industries.
b. Vista Products is not as profitable as some of its competitors
c. Companies with fast, modern computer systems would have no need to spend large amounts of money to upgrade these systems.
d. No investment analyst has visited every single Vista Products factory.
e. When assessing the overall quality of a company's operations, production line speed is more critical than the quality of the company's computer systems.
[Reveal] Spoiler: OA
