HideShow timer Statistics

City Controller: 63% of our residents voted to approve the developer's request to build a national chain hotel on the site of the old consignment store. The hotel will increase our revenue base and, therefore, provide more money for schools and community services.

Mayor: But our recent survey showed that the most important reason people want to live here is our small-town feel resulting from the local ownership of the vast majority of businesses.

What is the best explanation for the apparent contradiction in opinions cited by the controller and the mayor?

A) Most people believe having a small-town feel is more important than having quality schools.
B) A locally-owned business might be able to generate as much revenue as a well-known hotel chain.
C) The recent survey did not ask about preferences for a chain hotel versus a locally-owned bed and breakfast.
D) An increase in the town's revenue base may not result in additional money for the schools.
E) The recent survey cited by the mayor polled people who are considering moving to the town.

Yes E sound true since if people who were surveyed are only planning to move then they could not have voted during the elections.

Agree with E

Only E fills the gap at the same time keeping City Controller's as well as Mayor's argument intact.
