This year the New Hampshire Division of Company X, set a new record for annual sales by that division. This record is especially surprising since the New Hampshire Division has the smallest potential market and the lowest sales of any of Company X's divisions.

Which of the following identifies a flaw in the logical coherence of the statement above?

A.If overall sales for Company X were sharply reduced, the New Hampshire Division's new sales record is irrelevant to the company's prosperity.

B.Since the division is competing against its own record, the comparison of its sales record with that of other divisions is irrelevant.

C.If this is the first year that the New Hampshire Division has been last in sales among Company X's divisions, the new record is not surprising at all.

D.If overall sales for Company X were greater than usual, it is not surprising that the New Hampshire Division was last in sales.

E.Since the New Hampshire Division has the smallest potential market, it is not surprising that it had the lowest sales.

Well CR questions need attention .

This year the New Hampshire Division of Company X, set a new record for annual sales by that division. This record is especially surprising since the New Hampshire Division has the smallest potential market and the lowest sales of any of Company X's divisions.

A record is set to its own record, therefore comparing sales figure with company's other divisions is irrevelant.

B

This is one of those questions where you have the answer before even looking at the choices. After B you stop reading further.

Choice B. There is nothing that logically connects the first sentence with the rest of the passage.

No. of sales are less. but it set a new record for annual sales by that division. so that means that division's annual sale was more than compare to the last year or past years.
