well, I can see that you are new to the forum, and I must say honestly that A is not the answer. The problem is the question is one of the simplest questions to practice gmat concepts. Ones also can learn one or two important patterns in this question.

Don't feel frustrated! Keep it up, bro!

It cannot be A. A implies the word 'Principally' . Junior colleges never principally taught how to earn profits. All they did was teach pragmatically.

Hi Experts,

the option E says method of business changed, but it don't say that the methods were profitable. then how E is correct? I feel D should be the correct one.

Hi kanthaliya,

Last Line states : the sons and daughters of merchants returned home, often to increase significantly the size of the family's enterprise or in other ways, to maximize the profits.

No where in the passage it is given that they maximized their profit. It is just given that " they returned home to maximize the profit".

The passage also states :- they maximize the profit by significantly increasing the size of the family's enterprise or in other ways. This can be presented as BUSINESS METHODS.

Now let's see Why D is incorrect

"Without the influence of junior colleges, many family-run businesses would have been abandoned as unprofitable." .

Can we answer conclude what would happen without the influence of junior colleges ? Whether it is Profitable or unprofitable? We are not provided with any info in the passage to conclude this.

Hence D is eliminated.

E is the Best of All.
