Isnt A worthy enough for discussion
Infact I found A more closer answer than B

And D on the other side talks about generic terms tires can be part of the worn out stuff

Experts please share your views on this

(D) is the only answer choice that adds the kind of outside revenue stream we want.



Can someone please state the conclusion and premise and identify whether the option D fills the gap between conclusion and premise as this strengthen the argument?

Hi ,

I find choice D as less of a strengthener as we are not given whether Rubco will sell the replacement tyres at a higher price directly to consumers. If they sell the replacements to Maxilux directly , the profit will be approx zero as stated earlier.
Choice C in my opinion will cut down the Logistical and Transportation cost and help in increasing profits. Thus it makes the Rubco executives' claim more believable.

Experts , Any thoughts on this ?

Can someone shed some light on why C is wrong?

If the facilities are located closer, doesn't that mean that it's reduced cost and therefore higher profits?


Because the analyst said that M's purchase price is just cover cost (which is the cost of the materials to be used to make the tires). So R will be unprofitable if it incurs any other cost. If the facilities are located close, R still need transportation cost anyhow. (C) makes R "less unprofitable", it does not make R "become profitable".

Thanks.. But why not A.. We have no clue about a spare tire, perhaps the spare tire causes additional revenue stream?
