After extensive research, a study has finally determined what the price elasticity of demand will be for the new laptop your company, Ashtechicon, is about to release. But then, due to a computer error (engineering still has a few kinks to work out) the answer gets jumbled with four other numbers. You know that one of them is the price elasticity of demand for your new laptop, but you can't figure out which one it is.

Having heard of your situation, your coworker Jerry pops in and says "Hey, maybe this will help: I just read a study about how people choose between laptops and tablets that says that the price elasticity for laptops is $-0.92$."

It dawns on you that you know the answer. Which of the following is the price elasticity for the new laptop you'll release?

A

$1.2$

B

$-0.46$

C

$-0.92$

D

$-0.21$

E

$-1.1$
