A large manufacturer of electronic equipment expects to refurbish 1,800 units next year. Yet it is unlikely that a sufficient number of replacement parts will be available because the number of factory returns has been consistently decreasing over the past five years.
The argument above assumes that
Afactory returns provide a significant portion of the replacement parts used by the manufacturer to refurbish electronics equipment
Bduring the next two years, factory returns will increase in number
Cin the coming year, no more than 1,800 people will try to purchase refurbished units from the manufacturer
Din previous years, the manufacturer`s predictions as to the number of refurbished units needed have been very inaccurate
Eevery factory return produces a needed replacement part for the manufacturer
