In the United States, vacationers account for more than half of all visitors to what are technically called тАЬpure aquariumsтАЭ but for fewer than one quarter of all visitors to zoos, which usually include a тАЬzoo aquariumтАЭ of relatively modest scope.

Which of the following, if true, most helps to account for the difference described above between visitors to zoos and visitors to pure aquariums?
a.In cities that have both a zoo and a pure aquarium, local residents are twice as likely to visit the aquarium, as they are to visit the zoo.
b.Virtually all-larger metropolitan areas have zoos, whereas only a few large metropolitan areas have pure aquariums.
c.Over the last ten years, newly constructed pure aquariums have outnumbered newly established zoos by a factor of two to one.
d.People who visit a zoo in a given year are two times more likely to visit a pure aquarium that year than are people who do not visit a zoo.
e.The zoo aquariums of zoos that are in the same city as a pure aquarium tend to be smaller than the aquariums of zoos that have no pure aquarium nearby.

I'd go with B here. No matter how many zoo aquarium or pure aquarium that were built over the last 10 years, C fails to account for the number of zoo aquarium or pure aquarium already in existence.
