In the aftermath of a worldwide stock-market crash, Country T
claimed that the severity of the stock-market crash it experienced
resulted from the accelerated process of denationalization many of
its industries underwent shortly before the crash.
Which of the following, if it could be carried out, would be most
useful in an evaluation of Country T's assessment of the causes of
the severity of its stock-market crash?
(A) Calculating the average loss experienced by individual traders in
Country T during the crash
(B) Using economic theory to predict the most likely date of the next
crash in Country T
(C) Comparing the total number of shares sold during the worst days
of the crash in Country T to the total number of shares sold in
Country T just prior to the crash.
(D) Comparing the severity of the crash in Country T to the severity
of the crash in countries otherwise economically similar to Country T
that have not experienced recent denationalization
(E) Comparing the long-term effects of the crash on the purchasing
power of the currency of Country T to the immediate, more severe
short-term effects of the crash on the purchasing power of the
currency of Country T.

Hi

I marked B here for the reason that if the country can identify the date of its next crash, it has identified the reasons for the crash successfully.
Whereas D only tells us to compare the severity of the countries.

Kindly explain.
