Which statement best summarizes the passage?

From "Amazon.com." Encyclopedia Britannica. Encyclopedia Britannica Online School Edition. Encyclopedia Britannica, Inc., 2013. Web. 10 Jan. 2013.

'The Kindle Shakes Up Publishing'

By 2010 the rift between book publishers and Amazon.com over the price of e-books had grown. The publishing company Macmillan Books threatened to pull its e-books from Amazon.com, which retaliated by removing all Macmillan books, both printed and electronic, from the site. However, within weeks, Amazon.com capitulated and allowed Macmillan and other publishers to set prices of e-books.


A.Only one company, Macmillan Books, was brave enough to stand up to Amazon. And Macmillan won the fight.

B.Amazon came very close to losing a major publisher's books because of the disagreement over how to price e-books.

C.The incident with Macmillan Books gave other publishers hope that they could also stand up to Amazon when they felt that they were being unfairly treated.

D.Macmillan Books decided to stop selling through Amazon unless Amazon agreed to price e-books more fairly. To avoid this loss, Amazon quickly agreed to the major publisher's terms.

C comes closest to including and reflecting all the major aspects and nuances of the issue in the paragraph. The other answers focus too narrowly on only one dimension of the issue.

B summarizes the paragraph correctly. The others assume facts not presented in the paragraph. A, C, and D only imply what may be true, but the question asks to summarize what is actually in the paragraph.
