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 ______.

A. the average length of stay is longer at the largest hotel in Harristown than it is at the Royal Arms Hotel

B. there is only one hotel in Harristown that is larger than the Royal Arms Hotel

C. more tourists stay in hotels in Harristown than stay in the Royal Arms Hotel

D. the Royal Arms Hotel is the largest hotel in Springfield

E. the Royal Arms Hotel is the only hotel in Springfield

E

1. Tourists in hotels in springfield > Tourists staying in city of Harristown

2. Tourists in Royal Arms Hotel < Tourists in largest hotel in Harristown

if E is TRUE, i.e, Royal Arms Hotel is the only hotel, then as per 2, Total tourists in hotels(Royal Arms) in springfield will be LESS than tourists in city of Harristown. Which negates 1. So E MUST be false.
