I would go with C.

(C) Some individuals who need to reduce their intake of cholesterol are not deterred from using the reduced-butterfat product by the negative connotations of the term “imitation.â€

The conclusion is about people who are deterred by the name "imitation butter"...so C is outside the scope of the argument.

Right Vineet.

I think E is right because it most directly attacks the reasoning behind using the term LITE. The argument for using LITE is that people would be deterred by the term IMITATION and choose a higher fat content Butter. Whereas E says people in fact choose the lower fat content butter implying that LITE is actually NOT really required in that people are not unnecessarily fooled into making a wrong choice because of the usage of IMITATION.
