Many banks offer drive-through automatic teller machines (ATMs), which are located on the driver’s side of a lane accessible only to automobiles; pedestrians and cyclists are not allowed to enter the lanes. Clearly, blind people do not drive automobiles; nevertheless, like the universally accessible ATMs inside the bank branches, all of the drive-through ATMs have both Braille and visible numbers on their keypads.

Which of the following, if true, most helps to explain the discrepancy described in the passage?


a)The cost per unit to ATM manufacturers of producing multiple types of ATMs is substantially greater than that of producing one universal model.


B)Both the drive-through ATMs and the universally accessible in-branch ATMs feature multiple languages in their audio and video output.


C)Federal regulations require that all ATMs accessible to the blind must have keypads featuring both Braille and visible numbers.


D)The blind make up a higher percentage of the banks’ customers than they did in previous decades.

E)Recent advertising campaigns at the banks in question have focused on reaching out to disabled customers.

Premise 2: Clearly, blind people do not drive automobiles;

Conclusion: nevertheless, like the universally accessible ATMs inside the bank branches, all of the drive-through ATMs have both Braille and visible numbers on their keypads.

Which of the following, if true, most helps to explain the discrepancy described in the passage?

a)The cost per unit to ATM manufacturers of producing multiple types of ATMs is substantially greater than that of producing one universal model.
B)Both the drive-through ATMs and the universally accessible in-branch ATMs feature multiple languages in their audio and video output. => Not relate to Braille and visible number on keypads
C)Federal regulations require that all ATMs accessible to the blind must have keypads featuring both Braille and visible numbers.=> explain universally accessible ATM have both Braille and visible numbers, but not explain Braille and visible numbers on the new kind of ATMs
D)The blind make up a higher percentage of the banks’ customers than they did in previous decades.
E)Recent advertising campaigns at the banks in question have focused on reaching out to disabled customers. => again, Not relate to Braille and visible number on keypads


Only A explain why the new kind of ATMs have some features similar to universal ATMs

Even i am not convinced with the Answer A .
My best bet is "C" , Agree that blind people do not drive automobiles but they do take cabs and taxis and in case they need money they would go to such ATMs and this is the reason why Federal regulations require that all ATMs accessible to the blind must have keypads featuring both Braille and visible numbers.
and this also supports the cost thing , no additional cost for setting up a different kind of ATM machine.

Let me try my best to explain this..!

The stimuls clearly states that the ATMs are accessible only on driver side, and the blind people cannot access the ATM as they are not going to be sit on driver seat even if they take cabs or taxies. This logic sets the resolve the paradox type of question and we cannot question that. Here we need to find the soln to sort out this discrepency..welcome any better explanations :lol:

This is how I bet on answer choice 'A':)
