Hey ENEM ,

I think Yes it is an official question. I remember doing this during my preparation.

One question can also be found in other sources. So, it is perfectly fine.

Hi abhimahna, GMATNinja,
I am having a doubt here, No where in the stimulus he stated that Total number of nursing homes remained constant. What if the Total No. Of nursing homes declined after 1985, Increasing the occupancy rates ?
Then we can not infer it right. If we want to infer anything, then it must be true and we should not assume anything more than what the passage has given. Can you please explain me what am i missing in this question. Because of this thought process i could not get any answer right in the given options.

Thank you

Hi Nightmare007 The occupancy rate here means the number of beds in a nursing room which is occupied, not the number of nursing rooms which are occupied.
The admission rate is the number of people out of all the patients visiting the nursing who got admitted.

So, if the admission rate declined but the occupancy rate increased, it must be a situation where the people who were already admitted are occupying the beds for a longer period, which is correctly said in option (A)

The average length of time nursing-home residents stayed in nursing homes increased between 1985 and 1988.

Just replace rooms with Beds, still my query stays.

Can you explain it.
