More than a year ago, the city announced that police would crack down on illegally parked cars and that resources would be diverted from writing speeding tickets to ticketing illegally parked cars. But no crackdown has taken place. The police chief claims that resources have had to be diverted from writing speeding tickets to combating the city‟s staggering drug problem. Yet the police are still writing as many speeding tickets as ever. Therefore, the excuse about resources being tied up in fighting drug-related crime simply is not true.
The conclusion in the passage depends on the assumption that
(A) every member of the police force is qualified to work on combating the city‟s drug problem
(B) drug-related crime is not as serious a problem for the city as the police chief claims it is
(C) writing speeding tickets should be as important a priority for the city as combating drug-related crime
(D) the police could be cracking down on illegally parked cars and combating the drug problem without having to reduce writing speeding tickets
(E) the police cannot continue writing as many speeding tickets as ever while diverting resources to combating drug-related crime

please post your timing too.

Yet the police are still writing as many speeding tickets as ever. Therefore, the excuse about resources being tied up in fighting drug-related crime simply is not true.

Paraphrase: suppose 10 people are writing speed tickets say 20.
Now out of 10 people 5 have gone for drug related cases. Yet the speed tickets being drawn is 20. How can it be possible ?
--- Probably the number of people writing speed tickets are the same 10. And new people might be doing the drug cases.

The conclusion in the passage depends on the assumption that

(A) every member of the police force is qualified to work on combating the city‟s drug problem -- misses the point.
(B) drug-related crime is not as serious a problem for the city as the police chief claims it is -- misses the point.
(C) writing speeding tickets should be as important a priority for the city as combating drug-related crime -- misses the point.

(D) the police could be cracking down on illegally parked cars and combating the drug problem without having to reduce writing speeding tickets -- Point is,how many people are involved in writing tickets rather than how many tickets are being written.Tickets written is 20 ..all the same. POE.

(E) the police cannot/ can continue writing as many speeding tickets as ever while diverting resources to combating drug-related crime -- means even with 5 people 20 tickets can be written.Crashes the conclusion totally. Hence OA.

will provide the OA after discussion , please post your timing too.
