Hey Sicm,


E is incorrect specifically because the passage does not say anything about the need to restrict a monopoly itself. The passage seems to be okay with monopolies existing, just not the abuse of a monopoly. The abuse of a monopoly is spelled out in the 4th paragraph: excluding competition and leverage. There is a nice example in that paragraph that will help you understand the concept of leverage.

So to sum up, E is wrong because the passage does not at all discuss anything about the need to restrict monopolies, instead focusing on the need to restrict monopoly's abuse of power.

Hope this helps.

Best,
Ryan
