For similar cars and drivers, automobile insurance for collision damage ha
always cost more in Greatport than in Faimont. Police studies, however,
show that cars owned by Greatport residents are, on average, slightly less
likely to be involved in a collision than cars in Fairmont. Clearly, therefore
insurance companies are making a greater profit on collision-damage
insurance in Greatport than in Fairmont.
Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?
A. Repairing typical collision damage does not cost more in Greatport
than in Fairmont.
B. There are no more motorists in Greatport than in Fairmont.
C. Greatport residents who have been in a collision are more likely to
report it to their insurance company than Fairmont residents are.
D. Fairmont and Greatport are the cities with the highest collision-
damage insurance rates.
E. The insurance companies were already aware of the difference in the
like lihood of collisions before the publication of the police reports.
here's what the stimulus states
greatpoint has an insurance of 10% for collision
fairmount has an insurance of 5 % for collision
greatpoint has 100 cars - supposedly insurance makes 10
fairmount has 100 cars - suppsendly insurance makes 5
greatpoint has 5 accidents cost $100.00 / car = 500
fairmont has 10 accident cost $100.00 / car = 1000
the only way we can state that insurance is making profit on greatpoint is when its costing less to fix greatpoint. so
i would go with A.
GMAT the final frontie!!!.
