As soon as the suspect ran out of the bank, he started shooting at the policemen standing on the corner. As he ran away, he kept firing back at the policemen. The policemen took cover and returned fire. One policemen hit the suspect just as he was about to get into a waiting car. As the police approached, the car sped away without the suspect, allowing the police to apprehend and arrest the suspect.

Which of the following inferences is best supported by the passage?
A. The suspect robbed the bank.
B The suspect was not as good a marksman as were some of the police.
C The suspect’s accomplices, all armed with guns, were in the waiting car.
D If the suspect had not been hit, he would have fled the scene in the car.
E The police were trying to kill the suspect.

As soon as the suspect ran out of the bank, he started shooting at the policemen standing on the corner. As he ran away, he kept firing back at the policemen. The policemen took cover and returned fire. One policemen hit the suspect just as he was about to get into a waiting car. As the police approached, the car sped away without the suspect, allowing the police to apprehend and arrest the suspect.

Which of the following inferences is best supported by the passage?
A. The suspect robbed the bank. No info supporting this claim.
B The suspect was not as good a marksman as were some of the police. This is a bit of a "stretch". How could we measure who was a better marksman? It sounds like the suspect was running and shooting. The officers could have been in comfortable shooting positions. The officer also could have taken twice as many shots. We clearly have no means to conclude what makes a better marksman just from this situation.
C The suspect’s accomplices, all armed with guns, were in the waiting car. No info supporting this claim.
D If the suspect had not been hit, he would have fled the scene in the car. This can definitely be concluded. Read the part I that I bolded in the premises above.
E The police were trying to kill the suspect. No info supporting this claim.

I see why some people picked (B), hopefully my explanation above helps to explain why (D) is better.

(B) and (D) are certainly the top 2 choices.

D only seems to be relevant answer because if suspect wont be shot by policemen, he would have fled with car
