I am getting it as B.

Tourists in Number of hotels in S > Toursts in Number of hotels in H

But, one hotel in H accommodates more than a hotel in S.

If both are true, then the S must have more number of hotels. Thus, the wrong report has to say against this and B does it.

I also go for B

1st evidence : more tourists stay in hotels in Springfield than stay in the neighboring city of Harristown

2nd evidence : more tourists stay in the largest hotel in Harristown than stay in the Royal Arms Hotel in Springfield

B -> the Royal Arms Hotel is the only hotel in Springfield

It is impossible because we know that the total number of tourists in Springfield has to be superior than in Harristown.

Agree with B.

If S has more tourists staying in it than in H , then there should be at least another hotel in S ,else with just one hotel it would have less tourists staying here than at a hotel in S itself, let alone S.
