Columnist: The advent of television helps to explain why the growth in homicide rates in urban areas began significantly earlier than the growth in homicide rates in rural areas. Television sets became popular in urban households about four years earlier than in rural households. Urban homicide rates began increasing in 1958, about four years earlier than a similar increase in rural homicide rates began.

Which one of the following, if true, most support the columnist’s argument?

(A) In places where the number of violent television programs is low, the homicide rates are also low.
(B) The portrayal of violence on television is a cause, not an effect of the violence in society.
(C) There were no violent television programs during the early years of television.
(D) The earlier one is exposed to violence on television, the more profound the effect.
(E) Increasing one’s amount of leisure time increases one’s inclination to act violently.

The whole argument of columnist depends on one theory, which is violence on TV. If there is violence on TV, then it will cause violence in society. Now A is not the correct answer because though it fails to show that the condition "if homicide rates are high then the violent programs are the reason behind it". Also the 'number' of TV programs is really not important.
