IMO C

A. From the give data we cannot say anything about households with annual income > 80,000
B. Not necessary it may be possible that in Merton County there is no one with annual income > 60,000 where as some other county may have.
C. Hold
D. This talks about number but we are give percentages so we cannot deduce this.
E. Not possible to deduce this from the given data.

But how can we reach the conclusion of ''Some households in Merton County have
an annual income between $40,000 and i $60,000''. Anything not mentioned in the paragraph about that. Just from the answer choices?

It can be concluded from the give fact that "The percentage of households with an annual income more than $40000 is higher in Merton County than in any other county" which means that there will be atleast some people with income between 40,000 and 60,000.
