(B) Correct. For both groups of tasters, expectation of either a positive or a negative taste changed their perceptions of each cola. The first group preferred “cola extra” because they expected to prefer the secret ingredient, and the second group preferred regular cola because they expected vinegar to have an unpleasant taste.

i disagree with the explanation. I agree that answer choice B is correct ,but the explanation assumes too much and goes beyond the scope.
the discrepancy is apparently due to the expectation and hence the preference is "influenced" by the expectation. Now the explanation says that second group expected vinegar to have unpleasant taste- this may be true in reality but does not have to be true in this AC, nowhere is it given that most consumers would not like the vinegar taste ... expectations can be anything.

so according to me , the explanations goes too far to explain the relevance

Do we have provision of deleting this question ? Archiving still allows question to appear in quizzes or CAT's. Question and answer explanations are discussed and debated but no conclusion.
