question 21

Thus, anyone who feels that a TV show is worth preserving ought to buy the products advertised during that show. From this conclusion, I thought anyone, meaning even one person, who feels that the show is worth preserving should act certain way. I thought the conclusion automatically assumed "many people" since it's stated in the passage. Thanks in advance!

Hi Kenken, thanks for reaching out.

This passage is saying that it takes many people purchasing the products to keep the show alive, however on an individual level, if one feels that the show is worth preserving then they should purchase the products advertised.

This is why answer choice B is correct. It discusses the scenario about the TV show that requires many people to purchase advertised products and then states that those who feel it is worth preserving should purchase the products advertised.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
