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 ______________.

Type - must not be true

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

B. There is only one hotel in Harristown that is larger than the Royal Arms Hotel. - Irrelevant

C. More tourists stay in hotels in Harristown than stay in the Royal Arms Hotel. - May be true

D. The Royal Arms hotel is the largest hotel in Springfield - Irrelevant

E. The royal arms hotel is the only hotel in Springfield. - Correct - if this is true , then it contradicts the fact "more tourists stay in hotels in Springfield than stay in the neighboring city of Harristown"

Answer E

there is another version of this question:
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 county's "Report on Tourism" must be in error in indicating that _______.
A. more tourists stay in hotel accommodations in Harristown than stay in the Royal Arms Hotel
B. the Royal Arms Hotel is the only hotel in Springfield
C. there are several hotels in Harristown that are larger than the Royal Arms Hotel
D. some of the tourists who have stayed in hotels in Harristown have also stayed in the Royal Arms Hotel
E. some hotels in Harristown have fewer tourist guests each year than the Royal Arms Hotel has

How to eliminate D? Thanks

right, the question type belongs to the special type.
At the first glance, the question looks like a mix of strengthen and explanation. However, the type is inference - must be false. This is far different from not an inference.

All option choices seem confusing and complex.
=> E b/c of "the only hotel in..."
