Between 1975 and 1985, nursing-home occupancy rates averaged 87 percent of capacity, while admission rates remained constant, at an average of 95 admissions per 1,000 beds per year. Between 1985 and 1988, however, occupancy rates rose to an average of 92 percent of capacity, while admission rates declined to 81 per 1,000 beds per year.

If the statements above are true, which of the following conclusions can be most properly drawn?

(A) The average length of time nursing-home residents stayed in nursing homes increased between 1985 and 1988.

(B) The proportion of older people living in nursing homes was greater in 1988 than in 1975.

(C) Nursing home admission rates tend to decline whenever occupancy rates rise.

(D) Nursing homes built prior to 1985 generally had fewer beds than did nursing homes built between 1985 and 1988.

(E) The more beds a nursing home has, the higher its occupancy rate is likely to be.

Between 1975 and 1985, nursing-home occupancy rates averaged 87 percent of capacity, while admission rates remained constant, at an average of 95 admissions per 1,000 beds per year. Between 1985 and 1988, however, occupancy rates rose to an average of 92 percent of capacity, while admission rates declined to 81 per 1,000 beds per year.

If the statements above are true, which of the following conclusions can be most properly drawn?

(A) The average length of time nursing-home residents stayed in nursing homes increased between 1985 and 1988.---> clearly the conclusion coz the passage shows that there're more older staying in nursing-home but smaller admission rates possibly because those olders stay a longer time in nursing-home.

(B) The proportion of older people living in nursing homes was greater in 1988 than in 1975----> can't be the conclusion coz it doesn't involve the admission rates which are purposedly stated in the passage.

(C) Nursing home admission rates tend to decline whenever occupancy rates rise. ---> "whenever" is somewhat extreme...also, we can't make such a conclusion by comparing only two periods.

(D) Nursing homes built prior to 1985 generally had fewer beds than did nursing homes built between 1985 and 1988. ---> the passage doesn't mention anything related to this.

(E) The more beds a nursing home has, the higher its occupancy rate is likely to be.--> the passage doesn't mention about this.

A it is.

it is a clear A for me.

admission rate declined but occupancy increased. Only way it would have been possible, if patients had stayed longer.
