Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
The auther argues "the airlines should rethink their training approach" that increases the hours of classroom instruction and emphasizes communication skills in the cockpit, yet does nothing (or least) about compensating for pilots’ lack of actual flying time.
Airlines may circumvent this arguement by saying that "we will increase actual flying time in our training programs". In other words, C is a reaction against this argument the Airline may take.
We are looking for an ASSUMPTION not a possible reaction.
The auther believes that the current training is useless because "lack of actual flying time is an important contributor to pilot error in commercial plane crashes." So, no "actual flying time" but classroom and cockpit training, Pooooooooo.

OA is D. This the answer from Ron expert
this is a good use of the reversal method for (d).
the problem with (c) is that it implies that increasing the flying hours, all by itself, WILL decrease the number of crashes. this definitely isn't necessary to the argument (which strongly suggests that a decrease in crashes will come from a combination of extra flying hours + other mentioned factors, such as "classroom instruction" and "emphasizing communication skills in the cockpit"). _________________
