A newspaper recently reported the story of a group of hunters who found a heavily damaged mobile home suspended in the treetops in a forest. Although mobile homes in many towns in the surrounding area had recently been swept away by tornados, officials suspect that this particular mobile home came from nearby New City, which had been almost completely destroyed by a tornado three months earlier, on March 10th.

Which of the following, if true, most strongly supports the officials' hypothesis about the origin of the mobile home?

-Many residents of New City and the surrounding areas live in trailer homes.
-A calendar found inside the mobile home was turned to March 10th.
-Weather stations widely reported the tornado of March 10th.
-Sales of this particular brand of mobile home have been very strong in New City and other surrounding towns for the past six months.
-Decals supporting the nearby State University football team were found on the mobile home.
interested in the answer choice D. any explanation?

there is two problems with alternative D: 1) "other surrounding towns" means that the house can possibly been carried from any town on the vicinities. 2) "past six months" indicate that it is a brand new house, and the facts presented on the questions don't support any assumption that it is new home.

I got stuck between options B and D.
selected B but then moved to D as I found calendar in mobile to be very weak evidence and also could not find the problem with D.
lamanxa makes it to the point. Kudos to you!
