Some 70 percent of consumers polled at an upscale supermarket said that they did not care for the taste of Apex toothpaste. Nonetheless, sales of Apex accounted for a full 75 percent of toothpaste sold at that supermarket. The conclusion that at least 75 percent of shoppers buying toothpaste did in fact enjoy the taste of Apex toothpaste relies on the assumption that ___________________.

Opposite. Conclusion says TASTE = PURCHASE

D)a large number of shoppers polled were dental professionals.

Irrelevant

E)shoppers will not buy a certain brand of toothpaste if they do not care for its taste.

please explain the argument? If 70% don't care and 75% like the taste the only possible way is that poll was not conducted with all kind of people.
