When romance novels were located in the back of the bookstore, they accounted for approximately 6% of total sales. Since we moved romance novels close to the front of the store and put several books on display, sales of romance novels have increased to 14% to 18% of total sales.

All of the following conclusions can logically be drawn from this argument EXCEPT

a. customers who bought one romance novel are likely to come back for another.

b. customers are more likely to buy books located near the front of the bookstore than at the back.

c. the display caught the interest of people who might not have otherwise purchased a romance novel.

d. customers believe that bookstores put their best books near the front of the store.

e. sales of romance novels may increase even more if the section were moved all the way to the front.

Easy A.

No inference can be drawn from the given premise that customers are likely to come back for another novel.
