Studies in restaurants show that the tips left by
customers who pay their bill in cash tend to be larger
when the bill is presented on a tray that bears a creditcard
logo. Consumer psychologists hypothesize that
simply seeing a credit-card logo makes many creditcard
holders willing to spend more because it reminds
them that their spending power exceeds the cash they
have immediately available.
Which of the following, if true, most strongly supports
the psychologists’ interpretation of the studies?
(A) The effect noted in the studies is not limited to
patrons who have credit cards.
Out of scope
(B) Patrons who are under financial pressure from their credit-card obligations tend to tip less when
presented with a restaurant bill on a tray with a credit-card logo than when the tray has no logo.
The questions asks us to support the mindset in which the author predicts that people tips are somewhat linked with viewing the logo on restaurant bill.So this strengthens it.


(C) In virtually all of the cases in the studies, the patrons who paid bills in cash did not possess
credit cards.
Doesn’t do anything
(D) In general, restaurant patrons who pay their bills in cash leave larger tips than do those who pay
by credit card.
Out of scope
(E) The percentage of restaurant bills paid with a given brand of credit card increases when that
credit card’s logo is displayed on the tray with which the bill is presented.
The author is not concerned whether the person pays the bill from credit card for which he sees the logo.So Out of scope

A,C,E are out of scope. Here, C can be an assumption.
D is not correct because it has nothing to do with the logo. (after 5 minute, I take notice of the difference between "credit logo" and "paid by credit card-holder"

Imo B
Credit card reminds people of their spending power .
If the customer has a high credit bill to pay then after seeing the bill with the credit card logo he will be reminded of the unpaid bill therefore he will tip less.

i know I will tip less after seeing the credit card logo :-D
