D for me...we need to account for the increase in 1990...I dont see how A can account for the increase by 20% given the conditions.

I narrowed down to A and D. Both seem correct. Please explain why D is not OA.

This post was
BOOKMARKED
D is not possible because it contradicts the prompt.

The prompt says "moderate rainfall (more than one inch, but no more than two inches)".

D says that the total number of incheas with moderate rainfall was more than twice what it had been. Since moderate rainfall, as defined in the prompt, is more than one but less than two, it isn't possible for this answer to work.

Thus, A is the answer.

Well A is right - and unless by some divine intervention - because picking A is anything but intuitive - one were to just "get" it somehow - eliminating the other choices is a royal pain

Yeah, I am not convinced with OA either. I like D better.
If in 1910, moderate rainfall is somewhere .1 to .9 then in 1990, the city can have more than double of that amount and D still would be valid!!

i too not convince with A, there is no reference of 'heavy' category any where. D looks perfect.

At first I choose D but later after some calculation Option D can never be true based on the condition provided. Hence option A is true.

Thank you all for explanations :)

A is the only possible option. Other options cannot be true.
