Flight from Country T to Country D takes 5 hrs and has 2 layovers along the way. Time by train is only 4.5 hrs. To save time and money, vacationers from country D should take the train to Country T.

B) Routes for both flight and train ride from country T to country D are same as the respective routes going in the oppsote direction.
C) Flight time of 5 hrs is atypical for the trip from D to T

B! Thats the assumption in the argument and so it strengthens the argument!

According to kaplan the OA is A.

Reasoning -
Conclusion - Vacationsers looking to save monety should use trains.
Evidence - Trains take 30 minutes les than planes.

Why A - Knowing that the cost of getting to he train station is not mor than getting to the airport does not give either of the options any advantage.

Even I cannot agree with A. Can somebody give an alternate explanation for A?

In the test I chose E, sine i was thinking that if there is no more cash advantages by flying then that would strengthen the argument for trains.
