Hi @shafieiava,

(E) cannot properly be inferred from the passage because it is too strong.

The passage notes that, in general, retail stores that offer coupons charge more for those products, on average, than retail stores that don't offer coupons.

Answer choice (E) states that prices at retail stores which offer coupons WILL be higher than at retail stores which don't offer coupons for those products. We can't definitively conclude this from the generalization in the passage, making it incorrect.

Hope this is helpful! Please let us know if you have any further questions.
