I chose answer choice (D) for this question, because the passage definitely mentions benefits of advertisements near the end of the text:

"If there is a real need for emotional fulfillment, and if we can freely and authentically choose our means of obtaining it, then free, informed individuals may choose to obtain it through the purchase of commodities or even through the enjoyment occasionally provided by advertisements themselves."

Yet the video explanation says answer (D) is wrong because there are no benefits to advertising? How? People obtaining the desires they wish to fulfill, while enjoying the entertainment of ads. How is that not beneficial?
