I have encountered a number of MGMAT CR"S that can have 2 or 3 possible answers. I would like to know if some of you feel the same way. Try this and we can discuss.

Officials of the Youth Hockey League and parents of players in the league have become concerned with the number of flagrant fouls occurring during league games. This past season, the number of flagrant fouls was double the number from the season before. League officials plan to reduce the number of such fouls during the coming season by implementing mandatory suspensions for players who commit flagrant fouls.

Which of the following statements, if true, provides the best evidence that the officials’ plan will be effective?
A)Most serious injuries occurring during league games are a direct result of flagrant fouls.
B)League referees have been trained to recognize flagrant fouls and to report incidents involving such fouls.
C)Parents of players in the league are in support of mandatory suspensions for flagrant fouls.
D)A similar league suspends players for committing flagrant fouls; this league has a relatively low incidence of flagrant fouls when compared with the Youth Hockey League.
E)Most players in the league strive to be selected for the All-Star team, and league rules state that no player with a record of suspension shall be selected for the All-Star team.

I will go with E.

For the plan to succeed, we need to have some evidence that players would be wary of the suspension and would not commit the foul. Only E has got that.

After fixing on my answer, I have searched the posts and found the following link to have concluded on E.

It is close call between D and E, however I will go with E.
Having a similar league same effect does not mean that same effect will be observed here. There might be some other reason why that league have small number of fouls.
On the other hand, there is strong motive for players to not have fouls in case of E.

I have narrowed it down to D,E

D - says the method works for a similar league
E - says most players would not want to get suspended
- Players will be willing to follow rules to avoid supension


I pick E
