Which of the following most logically completes the argument below?
According to promotional material published by the city of Springfield, more tourists stay in hotels in Springfield than stay in the neighboring city of Harristown. A brochure from the largest hotel in Harristown claims that more tourists stay in that hotel than stay in the Royal Arms Hotel in Springfield. If both of these sources are accurate, however, the “Report on Tourism” for the region must be in error in stating that ____________.
the average length of stay is longer at the largest hotel in Harristown than it is at the Royal Arms Hotel.
There is only one hotel in Harristown that is larger than the Royal Arms Hotel.
More tourists stay in hotels in Harristown than stay in the Royal Arms Hotel.
The Royal Arms hotel is the largest hotel in Springfield.
The royal arms hotel is the only hotel in Springfield.
I would like a hint on how to arrive at the answer here. So far, I eliminated A, B and C.
Thank you for your help.
All the best.
I look at this backwards to arrive to E:
Here are the two facts:
1) More tourists in S hotels than in H hotels
2) More tourists in biggest HOTEL in H than the royal HOTEL in S.
I ask myself: If these two premises are true, can it also be true that the Royal HOTEL in Springfiel is the ONLY one there?
No, because it goes against the first premise that says "more people stay in HOTELS in Springfield".
