In today's lucrative chocolate wars, the Chocolate Goo Company uses 75% cocoa content in its chocolate while the Chocolate Nirvana Company uses 85% cocoa content in its chocolate. Based on extensive market research of chocolate connoisseurs, most of them find that 85% cocoa content is too high, yet Chocolate Nirvana's sales are the same as those of Chocolate Goo Company's sales.

Which of the following inferences is best supported by the statement made above?

Incorrect.

[[snippet]]The argument does not provide us with any information about other types of chocolate and in fact, explicitly states that 75% and 85% cocoa content are exclusively used in both these companies' chocolates, respectively.

[[snippet]]The argument does not provide us with any information about the quality of chocolate each company uses.

The Chocolate Nirvana Company produces more chocolate.

The cocoa used by the Chocolate Nirvana Company must be of higher quality than that used by the Chocolate Goo Company.

The Chocolate Nirvana Company probably sells other types of chocolate which can account for the higher sales.

Chocolate connoisseurs' opinion is a relatively insignificant factor in many people's decision which chocolate to buy.

The people surveyed are not familiar with the difference between 75% and 85% cocoa content in chocolate which accounts for the fact that sales for both chocolate makers are equal.
