The topics included in Financial Accounting books are a reflection of the demands that book publishers are trying to meet. The major deciding factor in the purchase decision of books is the recommendation of university professors. Therefore, the topics included in Financial Accounting books are limited to the general topics of study prescribed by the education board.


Which of the following is an assumption made in drawing the conclusion above?

A. The general topics of study prescribed by the education board are quite limited in scope.

B. University professors do not recommend books that are on topics outside the general topics of study prescribed by the education board.

C. The market for advanced topics of financial accounting will not grow unless there is a huge market for Financial Accounting basics.

D. University professors are much more likely to recommend books covering almost all the relevant topics of study in a subject area than to recommend books covering only a limited range of topics.

E. It is necessary for publishers to include in their books the general topics of study prescribed by the education board.
