### 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 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.
(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) Katsu proves that Hanifah didn’t read the entire report that was cited.
(E) Katsu disagrees with Hanifah over how accident records are to be evaluated for insurance rates

Hanifah arguments is insurance rates should be adjusted so that rates would be significantly higher for the regular commuters

While Katsu arguments is insurance rates should be adjusted to increase the rates of weekend-only drivers over those of regular commuters.

So they are disagreeing over how they evaluate for insurance rates

E.

B looks close, but Katsu is not citing the evidence, the evidence is presented by the report. Also the in general Katsu is disagreeing over the way in which insurance should work.

I believe the answer is E. It is definitely not answer A or B.
