Even after numerous products made with artificial sweeteners became available, sugar consumption per capita continued to rise. Now manufacturers are introducing fat-free versions of various foods that they claim have the taste and texture of the traditional high-fat versions. Even if the manufacturers' claim is true, given that the availability of sugar-free foods did not reduce sugar consumption, it is unlikely that the availability of these fat-free foods will reduce fat consumption.
Which of the following, if true, most seriously undermines the argument?

A Several kinds of fat substitute are available to manufacturers, each of which gives a noticeably different taste and texture to products that contain it.
B The products made with artificial sweeteners did not taste like products made with sugar.
C The foods brought out in sugar-free versions did not generally have reduced levels of fat, but many of the fat-free versions about to be introduced are low in sugar.
D People who regularly consume products containing artificial sweeteners are more likely than others to consume fat-free foods.
E Not all foods containing fat can be produced in fat-free versions.

Explanation

“Since sugar­free didn’t work, fat­free won’t work”. To undermine an argument, look for a choice that introduces new information raising a plausible objection to the argument or its basis. The correct answer, Choice B,​does this by stating that the sugar­free foods didn’t taste real.
