The demand for Korean horror films in America will fall considerably since American horror films are back in demand there, impacting the overall demand for Korean films. However, the American viewers’ demand for Korean films will increase again. Two years back when the American romance film genre went through a revival in popularity in America, the demand for Korean romantic films in America went down; however, the demand for Korean films has returned to its previous level since then.

Which of the following, if true, best supports the assertion that the demand for Korean films may not return to its previous level?

A) In the past two years some very successful American Horror films were actually based on successful Korean Horror films.

B) The Korean horror films were significantly responsible for contributing to the revival in demand for Korean films after it dropped two years back.

C) Various surveys show that the movie business in America is almost at its peak and is likely to go down after it booms in the next one year.

D)The demand for Korean romantic films has not decreased in the last two years.

E)American sci-fi films have always been more popular in America than Korean or American horror films have been.

Summary of the argument: Demand for American horror films has increased, causing the demand for Korean horror films to fall. As a result of this, the overall demand for Korean films will go down.

We have to support the above assertion.

A) In the past two years some very successful American Horror films were actually based on successful Korean Horror films. - This doesn't say how it is going to impact the demand.

B) The Korean horror films were significantly responsible for contributing to the revival in demand for Korean films after it dropped two years back. - Correct. Supports the reasoning by stating that Korean horror films were a major contributor for the revival in demand for Korean films. Now since the demand for Korean horror films is replaced by the demand for American horror films, the demand for Korean films will be affected.

C) Various surveys show that the movie business in America is almost at its peak and is likely to go down after it booms in the next one year. - Its going to boom for the next one year. Hence we cannot anticipate the extent of the fall in demand after the 1 year increase. Also, this doesn't connect the demand for Korean films.

D)The demand for Korean romantic films has not decreased in the last two years. - Talks about the past. We do not know whether the trend is going to continue.

E)American sci-fi films have always been more popular in America than Korean or American horror films have been. - Same as D.

Answer: B

A) In the past two years some very successful American Horror films were actually based on successful Korean Horror films. -Okay, but the Korean romantic/sci-fi or any other genre movies might bring the Korean movies back to their glory. We need to worry about the Korean movies as a whole

B) The Korean horror films were significantly responsible for contributing to the revival in demand for Korean films after it dropped two years back. -Correct.

C) Various surveys show that the movie business in America is almost at its peak and is likely to go down after it booms in the next one year. -If American movies will go down, then there are chances that Korean movies will become popular again. This choice actually weakens the argument

D)The demand for Korean romantic films has not decreased in the last two years. -This is opposite of what we are required to strengthen

E)American sci-fi films have always been more popular in America than Korean or American horror films have been. -We need to know about the Korean films as a whole
