My choice: C.
A,B & D are directly in the passage.
Between E & C, E is also implied. Argument says that "many well written & worthy press releases are returned" which implies that writing is not the only criteria to decide publication.

I guess it should be A.

Since there is no premise in the passage from which u can conclude that "ONLY " well written passages will be taken for press release. It just says that there is possibility of such passages not being accepted sometimes due to "LENGHT".

"C" can be concluded from the passage since it tells davis that due to length of the passage it was rejected even though it was well written.

I don't like this question. IMO, the only inferrence you can make is (E). Nothing I read negates that possibility that this letter is a "form letter" that the Times sends to EVERY rejected author, hence, no conclusion could be made regarding B, C, or D. In addition, there is no justification for assuming that the second sentence of the letter refers to the author's submission -- it could be just a general disclaimer.

If you can infer B or D from this letter, then I have a bridge I want to sell that might interest you...

C can not be correct - eliminating this conclusion we contradict the statement in the stimulus, which explicitly states that his essay, well written and worthy has been rejected for the reason of length limitations.
Remaining choices are A and E. The question asks about what can not be inferred from the info given. A can be, though it is not neceserilly true given the facts from stimulus. What is definitely can not be concluded is E since the criteria mentioned in stimulus include only length, worthiness and quality. Nothing else that might make us consider some more reasons.

I think it is C.
The statement mentions that page limitations in the Times is the cause for not accepting the release.
This doesn't mean his release was too long. It means the newspaper did not have enough space to print his release. For all we know, his release could have been 4 sentences long. But there was simply not enough space.

edit: there is no way to really tell if "page limitations" means there wasn't enough space in the paper, or if there were limits imposed on press release length.

Tony_Touch,
IMO <page limitations> does not mean that Times has currently not enough page space to print the release, that means that the articles considered for printing should not exceed a certain number of pages in length. Our article did exceed, that's why they rejected it.

A) only well-written press releases were accepted for publication
(B) Davis's press release was considered to be well-written
(C) Davis's press release was found to be too long for the Times
(D) Davis's press release was considered to be worthy of publication
(E) writing was not the only factor in deciding which press releases to publish

There is no idea,whether Davis's press release was too long ,wellwritten or worthy.It just returned,which implies E.

So I go for E
