CR Challengers 5

1. Dorsey received a dining room set from his grandmother, who had stored the furniture in a storage facility prior to giving it to him. When he placed a box on one of the chairs, the wicker seat buckled and split. Dorsey attributed the breakage to rotting caused by the damp and musty conditions in the storage locker.
Which of the following, if true, casts the most serious doubt on Dorsey’s conclusion?

a. The table, which was not made of wicker, did not appear to sustain any substantive damage. b. When he placed the same box on an identical chair that he bought brand-new to replace the broken one, the seat also buckled and split.

c. The storage company had never received any complaints about rotted furniture in the past.

d. Dorsey keeps a lot of his old furniture in his basement, which is also musty and damp.

e.The furniture manufacturer refused to honor the chair’s warranty because the chair had been repainted and refinished.
