CR 23/02

A small marketing consortium has been hired to interest more young people in chess. Chess is most enjoyable when two people of equal ability play one another. The group maintains that few people play chess because it is so hard to find a suitable opponent.
Which of the following statements would most seriously undermine the consortium’s viewpoint?
a. On average, a set of chess pieces costs much less than most other board games.
b. The chess industry received a lot of favorable publicity last year when a computer defeated the world chess champion for the first time.
c. Tennis, which is also most enjoyable when two equally matched opponents play each other, is very popular among young people.
d.Playing chess helps children develop analytical minds and learn to devise strategies to achieve long-term goals.
e.More than 50,000 chess sets were sold last year.
