The world's best coffee beans come from Colombia. The more Colombian beans in a blend of coffee, the better the blend, and no company purchases more Colombian beans than Kreemo Coffee, Inc. So it only stands to reason that if you buy a can of Kreemo's coffee, you're buying the best blended coffee available today.

The reasoning of the argument in the advertisement is flawed because it overlooks the possibility that

A)the equipment used by Kreemo to blend and package its coffee is no different from that used by most other coffee producers

B)not all of Kreemo's competitors use Colombian coffee beans in the blends of coffee they sell

C)Kreemo sells more coffee than does any other company

D)Kreemo's coffee is the most expensive belnded coffee available today

E)the best unblended coffee is better than the best blended coffee

[Edited - initially thought E... did not read the conclusion correctly]
Between E & C .. IMO C is a better option (ignore my prev explanation on E - now deleted). If Kreemo sells more coffee than any other brand/co the possibility is that Kreemo's claim is more appearance than a fact. E may be out of scope (talking about best blended coffee).

the reason sighted for K coffee is that it buys the most colombian coffee beans, well if it sells the most blended coffee as well then there is no proof that the K's coffee has more colombian beans in it?...C suggests that...

C it is

The author states that the best blended coffee is Kreemo's cooffe because
1.The more colombian beans of coffee a blended cooffe is made of, the better the blended coffee is.
2.Kreemo Cooffe is the producer of blended cooffe that purchases the most colombian coffee beans.

The author is assuming that the more beans purchased, the more beans consumed. Therefore, only C attacks this assumption and is the only correct asnwer.

C,

The author states that the more Colombian beans in a blend of coffee, the better the blend, and no company purchases more Colombian beans than Kreemo Coffee, Inc. The conclusion implies that there's more coffe and coffe beans in Ks product than products from other companies.

So if we know that K is selling more coffe than any other company, that will weaken the conclusion. If they sell more, there might not be more coffe beans in Ks coffe than coffe beans in other companies products.
