C - Commercial computer software will not be successful unless prime purchasers buy it.

Negate C - Commercial computer software can be successful even if prime purchaser don't buy it. Then there is no need to have that memorization constraint, because there are purchasers who can memorize. Argument falls apart.

But this question deserves atleast 600-700 level tag IMO

Premises: new software package need training staff and paying training is expensive because software package demand the memorization of unfamiliar commands

Conclusion: In order to be successful, companies need to buy softwares but they only buy them if they demand the memorization of familiar commands

I was hesitating between b and c but choose b (Commercial computers software that does not require users to memorize unfamiliar commands is no more expensive than software that does) because the conclusion states clearly that companies only buy softwares that are "user friendly" which means that the software itself costs the same it is the training that it's expensive. Plus, c ( Commercial computer software will not be successful unless prime purchasers buy it) is too vague because it should have been; computer software will not be successful unless it is user friendly.
