### HideShow timer Statistics

The proportion of women among students enrolled in
higher education programs has increased over the past
decades. This is partly shown by the fact that in
1959, only 11 percent of the women between twenty
and twenty-one were enrolled in college, while in
1981, 30 percent of the women between twenty and
twenty-one were enrolled in college.

To evaluate the argument above, it would be most
useful to compare 1959 and 1981 with regard to
which of the following characteristics?

(A) The percentage of women between twenty and
twenty-one who were not enrolled in college
(B) The percentage of women between twenty and
(C) The percentage of women who, after attending
college, entered highly paid professions
(D) The percentage of men between twenty and
twenty-one who were enrolled in college
(E) The percentage of men who graduated from high
school

clearly D. if men's percentage decreased then the women's percentage increase is only superficial.

The argument presents a substantial increase in the proportion of women between twenty and twenty-one who
were enrolled in college as evidence that there was an increase in the proportion of higher education students
who were women. This evidence would lack force if a similar increase in college enrollment had occurred among
men. Choice D is therefore the best answer.
