A recent survey of brand preferences showed that R-Bar Beans are considered the best of all brands among all age groups, leading both Texas T Beans and Aunt Sally’s Beans by a wide margin. However, the national sales figures show that Texas T and Aunt Sally’s each sold many more cans of beans last year than did R-Bar.
Each of the following would, by itself, help to resolve the apparent paradox described in the passage EXCEPT:OPTIONS
[A]. Texas T Beans and Aunt Sally’s Beans are each much less expensive than R-Bar Beans.
[B]. Some of the surveyed age groups showed more of a preference for R-Bar Beans than did others.
[C]. The survey was carried out only in the small geographic area where R-Bar distributes its beans, not nationwide.
[D]. Most food stores refuse to carry R-Bar Beans because the manufacturer demands that R-Bar Beans be carried exclusively.
[E]. R-Bar Beans were only introduced to the market three months prior to the calculation of sales figures, while Texas T Beans and Aunt Sally’s Beans had been available for years.
