Movie Money

Studio executives carefully examine how a film performs on its opening weekend in
order to determine whether-and how-to invest more in that film, Many decisions,
such as increasing the number of screens that show the film’ andexpanding
the marketing campaign, are best made after reactions can be gathered from audiences
who actually purchased tickets. Therefore, to maximize returns on their marketing
investments, studios should initially release all their films on a small ,number
of screens and with a limited advertising campaign.

The plan to maximize returns by initially releasing films on only a small number of
screens and limiting advertising depends upon which of the following assumptions?

(A) Large marketing investments made before the opening weekend never eventually
yield greater profits than small initial marketing investments.

(B) New advertising techniques, such as Web-based viral marketing, have not substantially
reduced the average marketing costs for films.

(C) A film’s prior performance in noncommercial settings, such as festivals, is not
well correlated with how the general public tends to react to that film.

(D) Across the movie industry, marketing investments do not influence the eventual
financial returns of films in predictable ways.

(E) How a film performs during its opening weekend is a strong indicator of the
film’s financial performance over its lifetime.

Can someone please explain why answer choice (A) is correct even when the extreme word ‘never’ is used ?

End of GMAT journey??

I am puneeth from India working in a bank as a test engineer. I have a work ex of 37 months. This prompted me to get a mba.
I have attempted GMAT thrice and failed miserably.
1. 510 ( q45 v17)
2. 450
3. 550 ( q 47 v 20)

I put in a lot of effort for the third attempt but the efforts failed. So I cancelled my score. My aim was 680. During practice I could apply whatever I learnt especially for sc. But during GMAT I blew it , I am clueless on what to do now.

Is it time to call of my pursuit of GMAT ??

Time/Task/Life Management in Business School

Hello,

I am a new MBA student in my first semester. I am loving my experience so far and am very grateful to be pursuing this path. However, I feel a bit overwhelmed as far as keeping up w/ assignments, projects, personal tasks, networking activities, club activities and social activities.

I am curious to hear how other MBA students keep up with everything and make sure they do things on time.

Any creative tips, anecdotes or advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
