Autonomous mode is a new driving aid likely to be available in modern cars, a mode that will make the car drive itself.Cars equipped with autonomous mode are expected to be safer when driving a car focuses solely on driving and does not check emails. or change music playlists, or send text messages.Currently, texting while driving - a federal offense - is responsible for 40% of all the road accidents.

Understand :
Fact : AM = modern cars
AM= self driving
AM= safer for some reasons
Currently, Texting while driving = responsible for 40% of all road accidents

Which of the following would the author least likely disagree with?

INFERENCE :

A. A major reduction in total number of accidents is likely to happen when autonomous driving is implemented in some cars.
- INCONSISTENT

Quote:
B. The current stats for road accidents support the case for autonomous driving.
- The entire argument hinges on the statiscal evidence ..

C. Texting while driving will cease to be federal offence when autonomous driving is launched.
- NO IDEA... the govt. may still continue the law... author does not ave enough infor to agree or disagree

D. Making texting while driving a federal offence has not been successful in reducing the number of road accidents.
- What if beofre law the texting accounted for 60% and after law 40% ?? successfull right??? SO NO IDEA

E. A car driving in autonomous mode will have lower incidence rate if auto accidents than a car driven by a responsible driver.
- The comparison between AM car and resposible driver cannot be made with this info !!

Please provide your insights on this one. I can't understand why B is the correct answer.

The current stats are concerned about accidents caused because of Texting while driving. So, it does not support the case for autonomous cars, which are safer when the driver focuses solely on driving, in any way.

In my understanding the question says " author least likely disagree with" actually means "author most likely agree with".

The OPtion B canvasses the support for Autonomous cars since the 40% accidents are caused because of texting while driving. The Autonomus car will supposedly allow you do the same while keeping you safe as is evident in the question.

Please excuse me if I have not been able to explain in a better way.

E-gmat is the source.
B is the OA. But I can also make a case in which A can be the answer. What do u think?
