13. Some governments have tried to make alcohol and
tobacco less attractive to consumers by regulating
what can be shown in advertisements for these prod-
ucts, rather than by banning advertising of them
altogether. However, the need to obey the letter of
these restrictions has actually stimulated advertisers
to create advertisements that are more inventive and
humorous than they were prior to the restrictions'
introduction.

which of the following, if true, would, in conjunc-
tion with the statements above, best support the
conclusion that the government policy described
above fails to achieve its objective?
(A) Because of the revenues gained from the sale of
alcohol and tobacco, governments have no
real interest in making these products less
attractive to consumers.
(B) Advertisers tend to create inventive and humor-
ous advertisements only if they have some
particular reason to do so.
(C) Banning advertising of alcohol and tobacco is a
particularly effective way of making these
products less attractive to consumers.
(D) With the policy in place, advertisements for
alcohol and tobacco have become far more
for other kinds of products.
(E) The more inventive an advertisement is, the more
attractive it makes the advertised product appear.
