15. Left-handed persons suffer more frequently than do
right-handed persons from certain immune disorders,
such as allergies. Left-handers tend to have an
advantage over the right-handed majority, however,
on tasks controlled by the right hemisphere of the
brain, and mathematical reasoning is strongly under
the influence of the right hemisphere in most people.

If the information above is true, it best supports
which of the following hypotheses?
(A) Most people who suffer from allergies or other
such immune disorders are left-handed rather
than right-handed.
(B) Most left-handed mathematicians suffer from
some kind of allergy.
(C) There are proportionally more left-handers among
people whose ability to reason mathematically
is above average than there are among people
with poor mathematical reasoning ability.
(D) If a left-handed person suffers from an allergy,
that person will probably be good at mathemat-
ics.
(E) There are proportionally more people who suffer
from immune disorders such as allergies than
there are people who are left-handed or people
whose mathematical reasoning ability is
unusually good.

Spent 140 sec and still did not end up marking any answer. Then when I saw the explanation and the fact that the majority of us marked C, the word 'propotionally' struct me in the head...

Perhaps I need to put more concentration
