    Assume that a federal regulation is adopted that requires bicycle manufacturers to disclose the weight of the largest frame size, fully equipped for riding, when they advertise the weight of a bicycle. If this requirement is challenged under freedom of speech, most likely:
    a. there would be no violation because this does not prohibit speech, but requires it in certain circumstances.
    b. the court would not consider the case because this advertising is not political speech.
    c. it would be found to be an unacceptable prohibition of commercial speech.
    d. the court would evaluate the restriction using strict scrutiny
    e. it would be found to be an acceptable regulation of commercial speech
