Hi PowerScore,

I am curious as to why the answer is not E. Isn't consumer welfare the broader point of this paragraph?

Thanks!

Hi Deck,

You are right that consumer welfare is connected to this paragraph in a broad, over-arching way. But this question is asking what the main purpose of that specific paragraph is about. In the third paragraph specifically, the implications of the antitrust laws are mentioned at least four different times. This means they play a significant role in the paragraph and should be identified in the correct answer choice.

Answer D is correct because it references what is/is-not covered by the anti-trust laws

Answer E is incorrect because that paragraph is not merely to remind the reader of consumer welfare. The scope of this answer is to broad for the more narrow scope of the question. This paragraph has a more specific purpose of explaining a facet of the anti-trust laws.

Hope that helps,

Sky
