### HideShow timer Statistics

5. In 1985 the city's Fine Arts Museum sold 30,000
single-entry tickets. In 1986 the city's Folk Arts and
Interior Design museums opened, and these three
museums together sold over 80,000 such tickets that
year. These museums were worth the cost, since
more than twice as many citizens are now enjoying
the arts.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously weak-
ens the author's assertion that more than twice as
many citizens are now enjoying the arts?
(A) Most visitors to one museum also visit the
other two.
(B) The cost of building the museums will not be
covered by revenues generated by the sale of
museum tickets.
(C) As the two new museums become better
known, even more citizens will visit them.
(D) The city's Fine Arts Museum did not experience
a decrease in single-entry tickets sold in 1986.
(E) Fewer museum entry tickets were sold in 1986
than the museum planners had hoped to sell.

OA for this one please? Is it A?
For me this is clearly the correct answer, NOT more people are enjoying the arts. It is the same number of people but in more frequent visits to museums.

OA is most definitely A. That is what I gathered from other online sources and your reasoning for the answer is spot on.
I also got A because now 80k are visiting but to find the number of visitors we should divide by 3 because the visitors now attend all three museums. Which ofcourse is less than 30k so we have what we want.
