Which of the following best completes the passage below?
In today’s pluralistic society, textbook publishers find themselves in an increasingly uncomfortable position. Since the schools are regarded as a repository of society’s moral and cultural values, each group within society wishes to prevent any material that offends its own values from appearing in textbooks. As a result, stance on an issue is certain to run afoul of one group or another. And since textbook publishers must rely on community goodwill to sell their books, it is inevitable that______
(A) fewer and fewer publishers will be willing to enter the financially uncertain textbook industry
(B) the ethical and moral content of textbooks will become increasingly neutral and bland
(C) more and more pressure groups will arise that seek to influence the content of textbooks
(D) the government will be forced to intervene in the increasingly rancorous debate over the content of textbooks
(E) school boards, teachers, and principals will find it nearly impossible to choose among the variety of textbooks being offered

will go for B. If they try to keep everyone happy, the material included will become very blah -- neutral and boring.

Text book publishers must rely on community goodwill to sell their books and since each group in the community wishes to prevent any material that offends its own values, this follows publisher increasingly move towards content that is neutral.

(A) fewer and fewer publishers will be willing to enter the financially uncertain textbook industry [This argument about publisher, text book content and selling books – This choice outside the argument scope – eliminate it]

(B) the ethical and moral content of textbooks will become increasingly neutral and bland [hold it]

(C) more and more pressure groups will arise that seek to influence the content of textbooks[This already stated as part of the argument – eliminate it]

(D) the government will be forced to intervene in the increasingly rancorous debate over the content of textbooks [Government is not mentioned in the argument – eliminate it]

(E) school boards, teachers, and principals will find it nearly impossible to choose among the variety of textbooks being offered [Yes. This may be a true issue, but in the light of selling the text books this is irrelevant – eliminate it]
