Both enrollment and total tuition revenue at Brownsville University have increased during each of the last four years. During the same period of time, enrollment at Canterbury University has steadily decreased, while total tuition revenue has remained constant.

Which of the following assertions is best supported by the statements above?
Total Tuition = Enrollment * per student tuition

A) Brownsville University now collects more total tuition revenue than Canterbury University.Total Tuition between two colleges is not compared. Only the past records of the colleges are compared with the colleges themselves. B's record is compared with B and a conclusion is made from that. C's record is compared with C and a conclusion is made from that.
(B) Students regard higher tuition as an indicator of higher quality.There is nothing given in the argument which tells us anything about the student's preferences nor does it tell us anything about the quality of either schools. OFS
(C) The per-student tuition at Canterbury University has risen over the last four years.According to the equation given above, we know the LHS has remained the same during the reference time period, while the enrollment has decreased. So to make the the Total Tuition constant when enrollment is decreasing, we need the increase the other factor .e. per student tuition. Correct.
(D) Within four years, enrollment at Brownsville University will likely exceed enrollment at Canterbury University.This can't be concluded from what is stated in the argument. Both colleges are not compared head to head.
(E) Canterbury University will likely continue to raise tuition to make up for lost revenue from declining enrollment.The argument doesnt give us any reason to believe this to be true.
