The woman’s volleyball team at a local college finished fifth in its division, prompting the college to fire the team’s general manager. The manager responded by suing the college, saying that the team’s performance put it among the top teams in the country.

Which of the following statements, if true, would support the claim of the team’s manager, and resolve the apparent contradiction?

(A) The team won all of its “away” games during the season in question
(B) Attendance at the volleyball team’s games was up 35% from the year before
(C) Of the starting team, three team members were unable to play for at least half the season because of injuries
(D) There are 80 teams in this particular volleyball team’s division
(E) The team lost more games this year than it did the year before.

Please answer with your explanations

College fired GM considering 5th to be lower rank, However, GM stated that 5th is a very high rank. Only option D, which shows that there were plenty of teams helps to fill the gap between two action/statement.

Ans D it is.
