Time 0 0 : 0 0 : 0 0
Vendor: In Country X, there are several prominent C/N/S fabric manufacturers. Each of these fabric manufacturers develops fabrics in unique combinations in order to product differentiate. The combinations vary in percentages but usually include varying ratios of cotton, nylon, and spandex (C/N/S).
We can therefore be able to determine, on the basis of compositional analysis, where the next piece of clothing that we buy from our supplier originally came from. Once we figure that out, we can cut out the supplier and source directly from the original manufacturer.
Indicate two different statements as follows: one statement identifies an assumption required by the antique expert's argument and the other identifies a possible fact that, if true, would provide significant logical support for the required assumption.

Assumption Required

Possible Fact

Other pieces of clothing have already been purchased from the supplier, all of which were made of the fabrics cotton, nylon, and/or spandex (C/N/S).

Some of the pieces of clothing purchased from the supplier were not made of cotton, nylon, or spandex.

Fabric manufacturers often tried to enter into each other's markets and experimented in producing batches of fabric in ratios of cotton, nylon, and spandex (C/N/S) that directly competed with the other manufacturers in Country X.

There was considerable overlap in product selection offered by the various fabric manufacturers.

The next piece of clothing to be purchased from the supplier will likely be made of only cotton, nylon, and/or spandex (C/N/S).

Most fabric in Country X was made at one of the several manufacturers.
