Anyway, OA is (B).
This question is from Kaplan 800
. However, their explaination do not really convince me. Even after POE, I still think (B) is correct, but the main point of question is errorous. It said in the stem "majority of their guests had taken advantage of the "Welcome Back" offer and paid the reduced rates". So that means "majority of guests used the offer and paid
reduced rates". But think about it, in reality, when you rent a hotel, how many people
pay for a room even though there are more than one person in a room? Of course, there should be only ONE
person who pay per room. This question COUNTS
everybody in a discounted room as "discount guests" who paid. This means everybody paid. MAKE NO SENSE. This question would make more sense like this.
In order to promote off-season business, Mt. Dunmore Lodge made the following "Welcome Back" offer to their winter guests: guests who rent a room for at least a week during ski season can come back during the summer and get 25% off the standard summer price of any room they rent. After the summer passed, the owners of the lodge determined that the majority of their guests had stayed in discounts rooms
. However, they were surprised to find they still managed to rent more rooms at full price than they did at the discount rate.
Tell me what you think
