0% (00:00) correct 100% (00:15) wrong based on 1 sessions
Many institutions of higher education suffer declining enrollments during periods of economic slowdown. At two-year community colleges, however, enrollment figures boom during these periods when many people have less money and there is more competition for jobs.

Each of the following, if true, helps to explain the enrollment increases in two-year community colleges described above EXCEPT:
(A) During periods of economic slowdown, two-year community colleges are more likely than four-year colleges to prepare their students for the jobs that are still available.
(B) During periods of economic prosperity, graduates of two-year community colleges often continue their studies at four-year colleges.
(C) Tuition at most two-year community colleges is a fraction of that at four-year colleges.
(D) Two-year community colleges devote more resources than do other colleges to attracting those students especially affected by economic slowdowns.
(E) Students at two-year community colleges, but not those at most four-year colleges, can control the cost of their studies by choosing the number of courses they take each term.



For OA select space after this: OA is B :twisted:

It must be B.

I think u guys missed the word EXCEPT in the question.

All the options other than B tells us the reasons for the increase in 2 year enrollment............

A - a strong reason to attend 2 year colleges since this will place you strategically for jobs still available in a stiff market

C - lower cost in bad times is a big plus

E - flexibility in payment of fees will be attractive during an economic slowdown

Either B or D. I prefer B since this does not explain if people will even take up studies in 2 yr college during an economic downturn. D at least suggests students affected by economic slowdowns are being provided with more incentives to attend 2 yr colleges.

B it is.
