Background information: This year, each film submitted to the Barbizon Film Festival was submitted in one of ten categories. For each category, there was a panel that decided which submitted films to accept.

Fact I : Within each category, the rate of acceptance for domestic films was the same as that for foreign films.

Fact II : The overall rate of acceptance of domestic films was significantly higher than that of foreign films.

In light of the background information, which of the following, if true can account for fact I and fact II both being true of the submissions to this year's Barbizon Film Festival?

A, In each category, the selection panel was composed of filmmakers , and some selection panels included no foreign filmmakers.
B Significantly more domestic films than foreign films were submitted to the festival.
C. In each of the past three years, the overall acceptance rate was higher for foreign than for domestic films, an outcome that had upset some domestic filmmakers.
D. The number of films to be selected in each category was predetermined, but in no category was it required that the acceptance rate of foreign films should equal that of domestic films.
E. Most foreign films, unlike most domestic films, were submitted in categories with high prestige, but with correspondinly low rates of acceptance.

E.
The key is correctly interpret " the rate of acceptance for domestic films was the same as that for foreign films"

No. of Dom. Films Accp./Total No. Dom films applied = Rate of Acceptance of Dom. Films.
No. of For. Films Accp./Total No. For. films applied = Rate of Acceptance of For. Films.

E. Most foreign films, unlike most domestic films, were submitted in categories with high prestige, but with correspondinly low rates of acceptance.

The maximum of foreign films were submitted to categories of high prestige. (ROA)F in High Prestige Category was lower than than (ROA)F in Non-High Prestige Category , where the Foreign films were not submitted in big numbers. So. in Non-High Prestige category where the (ROA)F was high the number were low. Also, within a category (ROA)F=(ROA)D.

Conclusion can be , Domestics films were applied in big numbers in Non-High Prestige section where the Number of selected must have been high to equal the ROA with Foreign films.

And any ways, only option E has a logical link to the conclusion. All the options except E seems not much relevant for the answer.

E for me

Most foreign films, unlike most domestic films, were submitted in categories with high prestige, but with correspondinly low rates of acceptance.

This shows most domestic films were submitted in categories with high rates of acceptance.

Good explanation by hunggmat +1

I think Its B,

Lets say if 100 local and 50 foreign movies are submitted.

rate of acceptance is same . so let rate by 10 % for both the foreign and local

so 10 % of 100 = 10 and 10 % of 50 = 5
Obviously even if the rates are same, the number will be higher for local than foreign.

I go with B

I discarded E because it says " were submitted in categories with high prestige, but with correspondinly low rates of acceptance"
here rate of acceptance of both the foreign and local are same as per fact 1
