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.


I'd rate it a very easy logic question.

We are given two facts:
1. More people say in Springfield hotels than Harristown hotels
2. The largest hotel in Harristown has more guests than Royal Arms

From this we can conclude that Royal Arms is not the only hotel in Springfield.

E.

I forgot to add: keyword in this question is which of the following must be in error.

The other answers are either unknown or definitely not in error.

E.


Agree w/ E.

The only reason this question may be a bit more difficult than normal CR's is because the question type is somewhat unfamiliar.

Took me a lil longer for this one b/c I didn't quite get what the question wanted.

This was easy compared to many CRs. I played with numbers and obvious answer is E.

More ppl stay in S hotels say 500 then H hotels say 400
Lh (largest hotel in H) claims it has more tourists(100) than in Hotel RS=50 (in S)


So the obvious error is E. RA cant be the only hotel in S to add up to 500. There have to be other hotels.
