TV is the future because it remains king of all media. While handsets get hyped, the typical U.S. consumer watches more than 5 hours of TV a day, according to Nielsen, and even younger adults 18 to 24 years old—the supposed digital generation—spend 3 hours and 30 minutes on televisions daily compared to only 49 minutes on the Web and 20 minutes on mobile.

The above argument is most vulnerable to which of the following criticisms?

A.
The argument fails to look into the possible causes of higher consumption of TV over other media

B.
The argument makes an assumption that the consumer preferences will not change significantly over time without looking at the past trends.

C
The argument fails to consider that the average figures may not apply to every consumer of media.

D.The argument does not talk about population below 18 years of age, which will soon be part of the so called

E.The argument proposes that the same cause and effect may apply in the future as in the past without even looking at the possibility of existence of cause in the future.

A.The argument fails to look into the possible causes of higher consumption of TV over other media - talking about the cause is irrelevant.

B. The argument makes an assumption that the consumer preferences will not change significantly over time without looking at the past trends. - seems good. The argument is talking about the current trend and making a conclusion about the future. Hold

C. The argument fails to consider that the average figures may not apply to every consumer of media. - incorrect. Average always represents the majority bend.

D.The argument does not talk about population below 18 years of age, which will soon be part of the so called. - looks attractive. But scroll up and see. It does talk.

E.The argument proposes that the same cause and effect may apply in the future as in the past without even looking at the possibility of existence of cause in the future - same as A. Cause thing is completely irrelevant.

Thus, B wins.
