Mystery stories often feature a brilliant detective and
the detective’s dull companion. Clues are presented
in the story, and the companion wrongly infers an
inaccurate solution to the mystery using the same
clues that the detective uses to deduce the correct
solution. Thus, the author’s strategy of including the
dull companion gives readers a chance to solve the
mystery while also diverting them from the correct
solution.
Which one of the following is most strongly
supported by the information above?
(A) Most mystery stories feature a brilliant
detective who solves the mystery presented
in the story.
(B) Mystery readers often solve the mystery in a
story simply by spotting the mistakes in the
reasoning of the detective’s dull companion
in that story.
(C) Some mystery stories give readers enough clues
to infer the correct solution to the mystery.
(D) The actions of the brilliant detective in a
mystery story rarely divert readers from the
actions of the detective’s dull companion.
(E) The detective’s dull companion in a mystery
story generally uncovers the misleading
clues that divert readers from the mystery’s
correct solution.

C it is .
It says some stories give clues to the readers to deduce the correct solution. This is true as it is mentioned in the argument that the same clues are used by brilliant detective to come to the right solution.
