PT 55 - S1, #19

This is the one about TV shows being cancelled due to low advertising effectiveness.

Is it B instead of A because A implies that one person could potentially single-handedly save a TV show through a certain action, whereas B is more explicit in stating that it has to be a mass effort?

That's question 21, but yes.

Edit: You essentially have it right, but let me clarify. Neither of these principles really provide a surefire prescription for saving a show, they just offer advice for what steps one should take if s/he believes the show to be worth preserving. A doesn't imply that a single individual can save a show, just that one ought to take a certain action if s/he want to preserve that show. It may be useful to think of A as describing a necessary but not sufficient condition for saving the show (the stimulus could say "the show will be canceled unless each viewer buys the products being advertised" and principle A could apply and be met by one person without the show being saved). You have the essence of it, though, which is that the stimulus says something must happen generally to prevent cancellation, whereas A says that the show will be canceled unless one takes a certain action (rather than many).
