Question Stats:

55% (02:40) correct 45% (01:41) wrong based on 192 sessions
Students from outside the province of Markland, who in any given academic year pay twice as much tuition each as do students from Markland, had traditionally accounted for at least two-thirds of the enrollment at Central Markland College. Over the past 10 years academic standards at the college have risen and the proportion of students who are not Marklanders has dropped to around 40 percent.
Which one of the following can be properly inferred from the statements above?
(A) If it had not been for the high tuition paid by students from outside Markland, the college could not have improved its academic standards over the past 10 years.
(B) If academic standards had not risen over the past 10 years, students who are not Marklanders would still account for at least two-thirds of the college’s enrollment.
(C) Over the past 10 year the number of students from Markland increased and the number of students from outside Markland decreased.
(D) Over the past 10 years academic standards at Central Markland College have risen by more than academic standards at any other college in Markland.
(E) If the college’s per capita revenue from tuition has remained the same, tuition fees have increased over the past 10 years.

easy E. the rest are too extreme. E works with only what is given. Population of Non Marklanders went down to 40%. It could be because more Marklanders began to attend the school as opposed to a reduction in non Marklanders attendees or vice versa. We cannot say what was responsible for the increased academic standards, so rule that out.
The only thing we can say is there could be tuition increases if per capita revenue remained the same.

good ques:
1) Non Marks used to pay higher tuition than Marks
2) prop of non-marks went down
3) Total fee collected remained the same as before
===> Fee for marks must have been raised to make up for the deficit.

revenue per capita is the average, not total!
however, some calculations prove the the rise in the fee is essential :)

students paid more fees before but now their percentage has decreased.this means we need to find an alternate reason for that.if the fees has increased then the students are forced to leave the college

If students not from Markland accounted for 66% (2/3) and were paying for exmpl 100,000 in total for tuition and now they account for 40% and pay the same amount of money than tuition was supposed to increase.

66 people were paying 100,000 and now 40 people are paying the same amount of money...


Hope this helps.

I still don't understand why the answer is E. What if the actual number of non-Markland students increase? According to CR Bible, decreasing porportion does not necessarily imply decreasing numbers.
