When three TNB-owned Titanium Alloy-built airbuses crashed in the same month, the TNB company ordered three new Titanium alloy hyper airbuses as replacements. This decision surprised many in the aviation industry because, ordinarily when a product is involved in accidents, users become reluctant to buy that product.

Which of the following, if true, provides the best indication that the TNB company’s decision was logically well supported?

A) Although during the previous year only one Titanium Alloy built airbuses crashed, competing manufacturers had a perfect safety record.

B) The Titanium Alloy built airbuses crashed due to pilot error, but because of the excellent quality of the planes there were many survivors.

C) The Federal Aviation Association issued new guidelines for airlines in order to standardize safety requirements governing preflight inspections.

D) Consumer advocates pressured two major airlines into purchasing safer airplanes so that the public would be safer while flying.

E) Many Titanium Alloy Airplane Company employees had to be replaced because they found jobs with the competition

Buying the same product which has resulted in accidents over other products can be attributed to other factors except the Product quality, among the given options (B) looks goods as it states that the product design/quality was not the reason for crashes, but there were some other factors involved.

Hence Answer must be (B)
