### HideShow timer Statistics

In an extensive study of the reading habits of magazine subscribers, it was found that an average of between four and five people actually read each copy of the most popular weekly news magazine. On this basis, we estimate that the 12,000 copies of Poets and Poetry that are sold each month are actually read by 48,000 to 60,000 people.

The estimate above assumes that
A) individual magazine readers generally enjoy more than one type of magazine
B) most of the readers of Poets and Poetry subscribe to the magazine
C) the ratio of readers to copies is the same for Poets and Poetry as for the weekly news magazine
D) the number of readers of the weekly news magazine is similar to the number of readers of Poets and Poetry
E) most readers enjoy sharing copies of their favorite magazine with friends and family members

I will go with (C)

Assumption is that people share the book. This has to be true for the magazine. Since same comparision is done the same assumption should hold good for poets&potery as well.

Has to be C
Only C and D are relevant and C is correct because ratio has to be same! no info of # of readers mentioned in D and hence is out of scope

C.

The same ratio is used in the paragraph to calculate readers for Poets & Poetry (4*12,000) and (5*12,000) as for the popular weekly news magazines.
