### HideShow timer Statistics

Ronald: According to my analysis of the national economy, housing prices should not increase during the next six months unless interest rates drop significantly.

Mark: I disagree. One year ago, when interest rates last fell significantly, housing prices did not increase at all.

It can be inferred from the conversation above that Mark has interpreted Ronald’s statement to mean that

(A) housing prices will rise only if interest rates fall

(B) if interest rates fall, housing prices must rise

(C) interest rates and housing prices tend to rise and fall together

(D) interest rates are the only significant economic factor affecting
housing prices

(E) interest rates are likely to fall significantly in the next six months

B

because Mark thinks Ronald's analysis concludes a drop in interest rates WILL trigger a rise in housing prices and that is not the case

I say B as well.

Mark uses one example to try and disprove Ronald's argument, based on the fluxuation of interest rates.
