Can someone please explain how to get rid of (b)? I understand the logic for (c) but (b) also makes sense to me.

I think this is one of those "hairy" CR questions that boils down to 50/50 on the GMAT. I answered this incorrectly BTW.

What I took away from this question is that C is the better choice, because it will either negate the importance of SaveAll entering the market or not.

Take a look at C again:

Let's suppose that after reviewing the proportion of stores that go out of business in other cities, the aggregate data indicates that the 25% bankruptcy rate is very common. Perhaps then, SaveAll's entry in the market is a non issue. But if the 25% figure is not consistent among the cities studied, then maybe SaveAll does have an impact when it enters the market.

That is my reasoning, can anyone see where I could have made a mistake?

Hi @e-gmat,
I wanted to ask one thing - here I am stuck why option B is incorrect and C correct. According to B, Do a large percentage of the residents of Morganville currently do almost all of their shopping at stores in Morganville? So if currently people are doing online shopping, then opening of SaveAll would not affect, else it would affect. Here, variance test is applied and successful. Also please tell me how is option C is correct?
Regards

HI

IMO If we apply variance test on Option B

Do a large percentage of the residents of Morganville currently do almost all of their shopping at stores in Morganville ?

YES : Say 70% of the residents do there shopping at stores in M. So after opening of the SaveAll stores can there be a impact ? Yes there can be a impact on stores of M
NO : Say 30% of the residents do there shopping at stores in M. So after opening of the SaveAll stores can there be a impact ? Yes there can be a impact on stores of M as these 30% can start buying from SaveAll stores.
