GMAT Practice Question Set #22 (Question 64-66)

Critical Reasoning Question #65: DVD Rental and Sales  
Time 0 0 : 0 0 : 0 0

Josh: DVD rentals nationwide together handled 10 million fewer DVD rentals in 2012 than in 2011. The decline in rentals was probably due almost entirely to the February 2012 launch of Webflix, the first and only DVD rental available that, in addition to renting DVDs, also sold them cheaply.

Maxwell: There must be another explanation: as you yourself said, the decline was on the order of 10 million rentals. Yet Webflix sold only 4 million DVDs in 2012.

Which of the following, if true, would most seriously weaken the objection that Maxwell presents to Josh's explanation?

(A)

In 2012 Webflix rented out more DVDs than it sold.

(B)

In 2012 two new DVD services that rent but that do not sell DVDs became available nationwide.

(C)

Most of the DVD rental services in the country rent DVDs at a discount on certain nights of the week.

(D)

People often buy DVDs of movies that they have previously seen in a theater.

(E)

People who own DVDs frequently loan them to their friends.
