Despite the fact that the health-inspection procedures for catering establishment are more stringent than those for ordinary restaurants, more of the cases of food poisoning reported to the city health department were brought on by banquets served by catering services than were brought on my restaurant meals.

Which of the following, if true, helps explain the apparent paradox in the statement above?

a. A significantly larger number of people eat in restaurants than attend catered banquets in any given time period.
b. Catering establishments know how many people they expect to serve, and therefore are less likely than restaurants to have, and serve, leftover food, a major source of food poisoning.
c. Many restaurants provide catering services for banquets in addition to serving individual meals.
d. The number of reported food-poisioning cases at catered baquets is unrelated to whether the meal is served on the catererтАЩs or the clientтАЩs premises.
e. People are unlikely to make a connection between a meal they have eaten and a subsequent illness unless the illness strikes a group who are in communication with one another

"e. People are unlikely to make a connection between a meal they have eaten and a subsequent illness unless the illness strikes a group who are in communication with one another"

Means that people who get sick from eating at a restaurant will not associate their subsequent illness with the restaurant but when many people get sick while at a catered banquet, it's easy to point fingers at the caterer.

I agree with ndidi, however I was thinking of c, but if c is true then the cases brought to the city health department should have also come from hotels as the same food was served.
Why there was no case reported from any hotel customer is very well answered by the choice E if it is true.
Hence the answer ( in my opinion) is E.
