So, the stimulus gives us the following information:
P1: SP - most - TVAD
What is hanging me up is the difference between answer choices D and E.
D (Correct Answer)
P1: PPS - most - PHD
But E seems to have the same structure.
P1: NPP - most - EP
My thought as to the difference between the two is that the stimulus and D apply the quantified statement to new situations where the past is no indication of the future (I.e. Just because an ad campaign has been correlated with successful product in the past doesn't mean it will be in the future with this new product; similarly just because most previous presidents have held PHDs doesn't mean the next one is any more likely to as a result). But that for E it is a good indicator because the action is the same (i.e. We're using the track record of the publisher to infer that a new publication of theirs will probably achieve similar profits). Is that correct?
