### HideShow timer Statistics

A study showed taht only ten percent of americans dog owners enroll their dogs in a formal obedience training classes. More than twenty percent of these dogs owners, the study also showed, participate in dog shows. Thus, it is obvious that people who train their dogs are more likely to participate in dog shows than are people who do not train their dogs.

The conclusion above is correct provided which of the following statements is also true?

A. It is imposble for a dog to compete in a dog show if the dog has not completed at least one formal obedience training class.

B. The proportion of dog owners who enroll their dogs in a formal obedience training classes is representative of the proportion who train their dogs outside such classes.

C. Dog owners who participate in dog shows only train their dogs by enrolling them in formal obedience training lessons.

D. Participation in dog shows is a relable indicator of how much attention a dog owner pays to his dog.

E. Only purebred dogs can participate in dogs shows, so many owners who enroll their dogs in formal obedience training classes are excluded from this activity.

The conclusion above is correct provided which of the following statements is also true?

A. It is imposble for a dog to compete in a dog show if the dog has not completed at least one formal obedience training class. -> OUT OF SCOPE we dont want to know if there is any criteria for enrolling

B. The proportion of dog owners who enroll their dogs in a formal obedience training classes is representative of the proportion who train their dogs outside such classes. -> HOLD THIS

C. Dog owners who participate in dog shows only train their dogs by enrolling them in formal obedience training lessons. -> HOLD THIS

D. Participation in dog shows is a relable indicator of how much attention a dog owner pays to his dog. -> irrelevant how does this matter to us

E. Only purebred dogs can participate in dogs shows, so many owners who enroll their dogs in formal obedience training classes are excluded from this activity. -> this is irrelevant

BETWEEN C and B im connfused !!
I will opt for C
We are not interested in knowing whats teh number of people who train their dogs other ways !!
hence i would prefer C which says all the dogs trained are from same place hence clear ratio !!can be indicative !!

A says it is impossible for a dog to compete ... this does not mean it can not participat .. it may not win.
C . does not weaken the argument any way ... I would opt C

B seems to be correct. If only 10% train their dogs in classes but 20% dog owners take part in dog shows then, 10% must be training their dogs somewhere else because according to the author's conclusion, trained dogs are more likely to participate. This implies that some dogs that are not training in classes are training elsewhere.
