### HideShow timer Statistics

Hanifah: A recent survey shows that there are fewer people who drive only on weekends than there are people who drive to work each weekday. As a result, weekend-only drives are involved in fewer accidents. Therefore, insurance rates should be adjusted so that rates would be significantly higher for the regular commuters.

Katsu: I canтАЩt agree with your conclusion. The same study also showed that, although weekend-only drives are involved in fewer accidents, when considered on the basis of accidents-per-mile-driven their records are worse than those of regular commuters. Therefore, insurance rates should be adjusted to increase the rates of weekend-only drivers over those of regular commuters.

In the conversation above, Katus does which one of the following?

(A) Katsu disagrees with each of the premises of the argument that Hanifah offers.

(B) Katsu cites additional evidence stating that weekend-only drivers are actually involved in a greater number of accidents than regular commuters.

(C) Katsu accuses Hanifah of using inaccurate statistical information.

(D) Kasu proves that Hanifah didnтАЩt read the entire report that was cited.

(E) Katsu disagrees with Hanifah over how accident records are to be evaluated for insurance rates.

I know B sounds quite obvious...but then Katsu does cite additional evidence so....

E is the answer. B states that weekend travellers are actually involved in a greater number of accidents than regular commuters, which is wrong. (they are, however, involved in a greater number of accidents per kilmometer travelled!)

I would go for E

B is definitely is NOT the right answer, because is contends that "...weekend-only drivers are actually involved in a GREATER NUMBER of accidents...", which is not supported by the question stem indeed.

The fact that Hanifah didn't mention part of the report doesn't mean that he didn't read it all.

katsu agrees with hanifah that weekend-only drives are involved in fewer accidents but further elaborates that the the study also mentions that for weekend-only drives accidents-per-mile-driven are larger.. He is of the opinion that the Second consideration should be the criteria for insurance.

Pretty straight E for me. There is only one issue on how insurance rates should be adjusted with number of accidents that both Hanifah and Katsu disagree with each other.
