11. 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 can’t 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, Katsu does which one of the following?
(A) Katsu disagrees with each of the premises of the argument that Hanifah offers.>>> Katsu does not disagree with each of the premises.
(B) Katsu cites additional evidence stating that weekend-only drivers are actually involved in a greater number of accidents than regular commuters.>>> [color=#80FF40]Loking good.[/color]
(C) Katsu accuses Hanifah of using inaccurate statistical information.>>> Statistical information is not inaccurate> Although weekend-only drivers are involved in fewer accidents>> State that
(D) Katsu proves that Hanifah didn’t read the entire report that was cited.>>> Out of Scope
(E) Katsu disagrees with Hanifah over how accident records are to be evaluated for insurance rates.>>> Out of Scope

I guess the answer to be E.

Katsu's argument never says that the actual number of accidents is higher for weekend drivers.
but says that a different metric has to be adopted when calculating the probability of an accident.

He argues that number of accidents is not important but number of accidents per miles driven in important.
