Popularity of an actor has nothing to do with the profits made by the movies : not always possible .An actor who has received the award can ensure his own income but can not guarantee the movie's success commercially.Sometimes, the award can be won by an actor who has low commercial success though he is known worldwide and earn highest salary(actors of art movies etc) so (E) fails.

(C) is clearly inferred ; it says that nothing beyond the award is needed for an actor to become the most popular.

Hope this helps !

E is wrong because nothing has been mentioned about the profits/revenue of a movie in which the actor got the blah blah award...So this is actually out of scope.

in inference questions we cannot assume anything outside the stimulus . . and for C the last line clearly states that lamma award winner is most recognized so no other reward is required. .

for E it tells about profitability of movies and we need to bring external assumption that profitable movies result from most recognized actors . .

C has too strong a language to be true. But rest 4 are worse.
So got no option other than C.

I doubt whether a ques like this can come in real exam.

@ koolpari . .this is an inference ques. no need to check if the statement is strong worded or not . . we do check that mainly in strengthen/ weaken and assumption questions. here you just need to find if the statement can be inferred from the stimulus or not . .in this case yes we can infer it . .stimulus is very strong worded one . infact a weak answer should be something to watch for because of such strong worded stimulus

@namrta movie makers are out of scope, the stimulus talks about the actors only

This is an inference question so your goal is to find an answer that must be true based only on the information in the paragraph. The paragraph in this case tells us that the Llama award is passed from actor to actor every year and that winning the award automatically makes you the highest paid and most recognized actor in the world.

It is difficult to predict an inference answer becuase there could be several different inferences but we know we are looking for either something to do with winning the award from another actor or becoming the highest paid and most recognized actor. Any answer that brings in additional subject matter should be highly suspect.

A) is eliminated because it discusses moviemakers, not actors and the passage tells us nothing about moviemakers.

B) is eliminated becuase it discusses other awards, which are not included in the passage (often answers that use the word "other" are wrong in inference questions)

C) Is the correct answer - it basically says that to be the most recognized actor you only need the Llama award - a direct paraphrase of the paragraph.

D) This answer seems attractive but does a typical word shift - replacing highly paid and recognized with popular, which is not defined in the paragraph and thus should be eliminated.

E) We do not know the effect of the award on the movies - therefore this answer should be eliminated.

Hi,

Not convinced with C. THe argument nowhere mentions that winning Lamma Award is the only way. There may be other ways too..

Other option are very extreme, so no other option than C. but still, not convinced with option C.

Thanks,
Jai

C can be clearly inferred from the above conclusion.

E is incorrect because even if the movies are not profitable the actor will still remain highly paid.
