Can anyone give me an explanation for PT 28 - S1 - Q 22 MSS Question? T.T

Under the influence of today's computer-oriented culture, publishing for children has taken on a flashy new look that emphasizes illustrations and graphic design; the resulting lack of substance leads to books that are short-lived items covering mainly trendy subjects. The changes also include more humorous content, simplification of difficult material, and a narrower focus on specific topics.

Q. Which one of the following is most strongly supported by the information above?
A. The inclusion of humorous material and a narrower focus detract from the substance of a children's book.
B. The substance of a children's book is important to its longevity.
C. Children of the conputer generation cannot concentrate on long, unbroken sections of prose.
D. Children judge books primarily on the basis of graphic design.
E. The lack of substance of a children's book is unlikely to be important to its popularity.

I chose E and the right answer is B.
I cannot figure out why B is the right answer..

    The stimulus states: "the resulting *lack of substance* leads to books
    that are *short-lived items*" - This directly supports (B)s notion that: "The substance of a children's book is important to its longevity."
