5. A person can develop or outgrow asthma at any age. In children under ten, asthma is twice as likely to develop in boys. Boys are less likely than girls to outgrow asthma, yet by adolescence the percentage of boys with asthma is about the same as the percentage of girls with asthma because a large number of girls develop asthma in early adolescence.

Assuming the truth of the passage, one can conclude from it that the number of adolescent boys with asthma is approximately equal to the number of adolescent girls with asthma, if one also knows that

(A) a tendency toward asthma is often inherited
(B) children who develop asthma before two years of age are unlikely to outgrow it
(C) there are approximately equal numbers of adolescent boys and adolescent girls in the population
(D) the development of asthma in childhood is not closely related to climate or environment
(E) the percentage of adults with asthma is lower than the percentage of adolescents with asthma

(A) a tendency toward asthma is often inherited
- not important.

(B) children who develop asthma before two years of age are unlikely to outgrow it
- can't help us make the conclusion that the number is the same for both boys and girls

(C) there are approximately equal numbers of adolescent boys and adolescent girls in the population
- I'll go with this. If the population is the same, then the same percentage would yield approximately the same number.

(D) the development of asthma in childhood is not closely related to climate or environment
- not imporatnt

(E) the percentage of adults with asthma is lower than the percentage of adolescents with asthma
- not imporatnt.

C it is.
