- We don’t know. There might be other reasons that other items can’t be returned.

I looked over choice D because it didnt get specific enough when it spoke about the refund. The passage says a refund of the purchase price. That doesn’t mean that there isn’t a refund. Maybe they refund at 75% of the value.
TutorLucas (LSAT Hacks) says
(1) LSAC does expect you to make common sense assumptions on the LSAT. In ordinary usage, “refund” generally implies a full refund unless otherwise specified (e.g. “a refund of 75% of the purchase price).
(2) The stimulus uses the phrase “refund of the purchase price”. You can assume that when the answer choice says “refund”, it is referring to a similar kind of refund.
