eliminating A is really a tough job here...

but still C is right .. got it only after goin through all the explanations


can someone confirm if this is really a 700-level question?

Studies performed in cinemas show that during intervals, people that are watching comedies order more food than people that are watching romantic dramas.

above eliminates A.

the studies have already proven the cause/effect. Comedies cause more food purchases than Romantic Dramas do. If you were a movie theater manager attempting to increase profits, and you had a choice between comedies/romantic dramas, would you need to wait for the scientists to prove "why" it happens? (ie how biochemically does this happen?)

analogy would be if you are exposed to the cold, you get sick. if scientists are still debating on exactly "why" you get sick from being exposed to the cold, it should not prevent you from keeping warm.

I think A.

C is a strengthener negation of which do not shatter the argument. we do not need that the comedic film is better than any kind of film.

Pls, post the official explanation.

we are given interms of food intake comedy > romantic but conclusion all cinemas show more comedy.
So definitely the gap is Comedy is > any other type movie in terms of appetizing food intake .


Studies performed in cinemas show that during intervals, people that are watching comedies order more food than people that are watching romantic dramas. Scientists are currently developing an explanation to this phenomenon based on the idea that the dynamics of neurotransmitters in the brain change the body's metabolism rate, and can affect the sensation of hunger. Therefore, in order to maximize the sales of food during intervals, cinemas should show as many comedies as possible.

Which of the following is an assumption underlying the conclusion?

(a) The scientists' theory was proven as being a correct explanation to the phenomenon.
it does not give me a explanation why only comedy not any others; negate it still it does not effect the conclusion

(b) Eating more food increases the intake of calories, which can greatly affect the body's physiological behavior.
does not affect the conclusion

(c) Comedy films not only stimulate the appetite more than romantic dramas, but also more than all other types of films.
correct, negate it conclusion is aftected


(d) The most significant income source of a cinema is the profit created by the sales of food.
does not affect the conclusion, no Discussion on profits


(e) People that order food before the movie are still hungry enough to order again during the interval, not affecting the sales.
does not affect the conclusion

Not quite sure why someone give kudos to A ; is not C the ans..please post the OA

Well

Although the OA and answer is C,please consider E also

People that order food before the movie are still hungry enough to order again during the interval, not affecting the sales.

The option tells us that the other possibility that can affect the sales due to interval is nullified.The option states that the people will be hungry in interval,even though they order food before the movie .So this factor doesn't affect the sales according to the option.

Guys ,

Don't you think this can be the assumption.

Hi Target,

If you scroll through the thread you will see a few explanations for why E is wrong.

But to me it's quite simple: it's irrelevant how much people eat at the beginning of the film. We are already told that they eat in the interval, so that they are not full at the interval is not 'an assumption' it's something we've been told already...
