If you look carefully at the stem, you will notice that we are comparing drivers carrying insurance for leased vehicles and owners not carrying insurance. It doesn't mean that owners do not buy any auto collision insurance.

The correct answer will address the cause behind this. Option A does it correctly and best among other options. Option E says that owners do not purchase but risk cost of repairing,totally digressing from the situation.

Hope this helps. :-)

A) Automobile drivers are not required by law to carry collision insurance on the cars they drive, but automobile leasing companies require that a driver who leases a car to carry collision insurance.... CORRECT......I HAVE A NUMBER OF CARS BUT I DONT NEED TO INSURE THEM FOR DRIVING THEM SO I DONT... NOW OUT OF THESE I NEED TO LEASE SOME AND FOR THAT I NEED TO INSURE THOSE ......SO I LEASE ALL CARS WITH INSURANCE AND CONTINUE TO DRIVE BALANCE UNINSURED.......EXPLAINS THE DISCREPANCY................ CORRECT

Prethinking

What should be the reason for the below situation
driver with leased car - Insurance
driver with owned car - No Insurance

A) Automobile drivers are not required by law to carry collision insurance on the cars they drive, but automobile leasing companies require that a driver who leases a car to carry collision insurance.
-- Automobile --- they drive --> will result in no driver to carry the insurance,
Just because of the second condition Driver must have to have Insurance to drive leased car


B) Automobile drivers are not required by law to carry collsion insurance, and collision insurance is extremely expensive.
-- This is talking about all the drivers. not distinguishing between owned car drivers and leased car driver

C) Collision insurance is a sensible purchase only if the automobile it covers is under two years old.
-- Out of Scope

D) Most insurance companies prefer not to issue automobile collision insurance and are slow to pay when a policy holder makes a claim.
-- Again does not provide any reasoning to the argument

E) Many drivers who own their cars would rather risk the cost of repairing their vehicles in the event of an accident than pay for collision insurance.
-- This can be true for leased car drivers as well
