Columnist: On average, about 70 percent of the profit from tourism in developing countries goes to foreign owners of tourist businesses. In general, as a country becomes a more established tourist destination, the proportion of revenues exported in this way increases. However, tourists can counteract this effect by obtaining accommodations and other services directly from local people.


Which one of the following is most strongly supported by the statements made by the columnist?

(A) Tourists in a developing nation should obtain accommodations and other services directly from local people if most of the profits from tourism in that nation go to foreign owners of tourist businesses.

(B) In at least some of the developing countries that are most established as tourist destinations, most of the profits from tourism go to foreign owners of tourist businesses.

(C) In at least some developing countries, tourists obtain most of their accommodations and other services directly from local people.

(D) In general, as a developing country becomes a more established tourist destination, local people become progressively poorer.

(E) Tourists who obtain accommodations and other services directly from local people do not contribute in any way to the profits of foreign owners of tourist businesses.

The columnist never specifies MOST of the profits while talking of taking services from local people. Close but a better choice is there

(B) In at least some of the developing countries that are most established as tourist destinations, most of the profits from tourism go to foreign owners of tourist businesses.
Correct. If on an average, 70% goes to foreign handlers, at least few have most of the profits going to foreigners so as to get the average so high

(C) In at least some developing countries, tourists obtain most of their accommodations and other services directly from local people.
that is a suggestion.. incorrect

(D) In general, as a developing country becomes a more established tourist destination, local people become progressively poorer.
not implied by the para

(E) Tourists who obtain accommodations and other services directly from local people do not contribute in any way to the profits of foreign owners of tourist businesses.
Again not implied.

B
