### HideShow timer Statistics

Demographers doing research for an international economics newsletter claim that the average per capita income in the country of Kuptala is substantially lower than that in the country of Bahlton. They also claim, however, that whereas poverty is relatively rare in Kuptala, over half the population of Bahlton lives in extreme poverty. At least one of the demographersâ€™ claims must, therefore, be wrong.
The argument above is most vulnerable to which of the following criticisms?
(A) It rejects an empirical claim about the average per capita incomes in the two countries without making any attempt to discredit that claim by offering additional economic evidence.
(B) It treats the vague term â€œpovertyâ€

I thought I was far from the math part, but nooooo... median, mean, standard deviation, now added to the CR part. I'm glad I'm almost done.

yeah..E is the only possible answer.

In Country K, majority of the population is near Per capita income. And hence poverty may be rare. In country B, half of the population may be very poor, other half may be very wealthy. So, per capita income is high but poverty is also high.
