Choices B, C, and D can obviously be inferred. I went with option A that appears incorrect one.

(A) only well-written press releases were accepted for publication

How based on the given argument we can infer that only well-written press releases were accepted for publication
We only are said that some well-written PR are not accepted because of length, does it really imply that not well-written are even not considered? Not sure..

(E) writing was not the only factor in deciding which press releases to publish
This one appears more tricky. I assume that the length is a separate category to gauge PRs; and "writing" mentioned in this answer choice encompasses only worthiness and well-writing and does not the length..

Hi: can someone help resolve between (A) or (E).
In (E) "writing was not the only factor in deciding which press releases to publish", but in the text, "page limitations" was another factor.

The editor says "PAGE LIMITATIONS SOMETIMES FORCE US to return well-written: documents"

It means that: even though a write up may have been good, it could be returned due to other limitations. Exactly what option E suggests.

The question doesn't mention anything about the criteria of acceptance, hence eliminate option A.

I think you misunderstood the question, we are eliminating the options that MAY BE inferred.

Thus, as you said above (E) CAN BE INFERRED, and (A) CANNOT BE INFERRED, thus the answer would be (A), in your analysis.
