Mayor A: In 1982 the courthouse that Roseville still needs would have cost 26 million. Now in 1992 the same building is costing the city close to 30 million to build. If it had been built in 1982 when I first showed how the building would relieve the overcrowding, Roseville would have saved at least 4 million by now.
Councillor B: Your own financial reports inform us that 26 million in 1982 is equivalent to 37 million in 1992. Adding that difference to the money Roseville has saved by not having to maintain an under-used court house for a decade, we can only view the delay as a financial boom for Roseville.
A point at issue between Mayor A and Councillor B is whether
A. Roseville will build a courthourse in 1992
B. 37 million in 1992 dollars is equivalent to 26 million in 1992
C. Mayor A is responsible for the city's financial reports
D. Roseville actually needed a new courthouse between 1982 and 1992
E. Roseville would have expended 4 million dollars to maintain a courthouse from 1982 to 1992Veritas
has borrowed this from another Test prep company. Why is D correct? If I say that not having a car in college years was a financial boon for me, does it mean that I didn't need the car? May be I needed the car but somehow, later on by chance, not having a car turned out to be a good thing.
Secondly, Councillor B doesn't say that the court house is not needed.
Experts - any thoughts?

Apart from the Financial saving for not building, they also saved money for not maintaining the building.
Letting the options A to C rest in peace, only options that are in contention is D and E.
As per the "Mayor A", 4 million $ is saved if they had built in 1982 and not for maintaining it and "Councillor B" says that figure is wrong.
And Option D) Roseville actually needed a new courthouse between 1982 and 1992 is left out and that is evident by statement made by "Councillor B" as "an under-used court house". hence Option D)
