I feel that an answer choice that people who are called by Salesperson will probably attend the booth.. Isn't that more appropriate. I am not convinced with C as it assumes that mere calling and inviting top customers to booth will surely translate into their visit. And the rest will follow. Pls explain why implicit assumption has not been addressed


This is a strengthening type question, not an assumption type question. Therefore "must be true" criterion is not required to be satisfied here.
Calling the customers MAY (not MUST) result in a crowded booth, which in turn may draw more customers.

Although mere calling does not ensure the following events, but it may actually. Hence this is a strengthening statement.

Understand and thanks. However, so in case of answer choices as provided , I must take assumption to be true and based on that see answer choice which strengthens teh argument. Please tell my understanding is correct or not

Yes, your understanding is correct. But when I took the test, my thought process was different:

Does this choice IN SOME WAY support / weaken the argument? (What you imply by "assume" is what I thought as "in some way".)

We need to find an answer supporting that the first measure of manager would increase attendance
C supports it
If you feel stuck between A and C, try negation technique:
Vitacorp’s salespeople do not routinely inform each important customer about new products and services as soon as the decision to launch them has been made. Neither support nor weaken

An information booth that is well attended does not tend to attract visitors who would not otherwise have attended the booth. THis one does weak the manager's measure

C strengthens the main premise. C is much better than A because "attract new customers" win "provide information".
Clearly, "provide information" is not a premise, but just gives the definition, or the role of the booth.

Answer choice 'C' clearly supports marketing director's plan. Well, attended booth will attract more people.
