Due to the increase in traffic accidents caused by deer in the state, the governor last year reintroduced a longer deer hunting season to encourage recreational hunting of the animals. The governor expected the longer hunting season to decrease the number of deer and therefore decrease the number of accidents. However, this year the number of accidents caused by deer has increased substantially since the reintroduction of the longer deer hunting season.

Which of the following, if true, would best explain the increase in traffic accidents caused by deer?

(A) Many recreational hunters hunt only once or twice per hunting season, regardless of the length of the season.
(B) The deer in the state have become accustomed to living in close proximity to humans and are often easy prey for hunters as a result.
(C) Most automobile accidents involving deer result from cars swerving to avoid deer, and leave the deer in question unharmed.
(D) The number of drivers in the state has been gradually increasing over the past several years.
(E) A heavily used new highway recently built directly through the state’s largest forest, which is the primary habitat of the state's deer population.

What's the indication that makes E correct?
Thanks Expert...


We are given that irrespective of increasing the hunting season, the car accidents are not decreasing. We need to find out something that proves this conclusion.

in E, we re told that the habitat of the deer population has been disturbed, so they are coming on to the roads and causing the car accidents. Hence, E is the correct answer.

Hi
Can anybody explain whats wrong with option ....A



My reasoning for E:

A -- word "many" -- we don't know the number is 5,10,15 ...generally we should avoid answer choice with these word ..
E - clearly state that new road is build in area having large number of deer...so accidents increased.

======================================================
PreThinking:In Resolve the Pradox questions one needs to link the two opposite premises.
======================================================


A:Many hunters but not all.rest of the hunters would still hunt and the number of deers would be lesser than the number from the last season.
B:Out of scope,The hunting should still have reduced their numbers.
C:Out of scope,the description of the accident is not helpful.
D:The number of drivers increase does not increase the number of accidents involving deers,although more cars would be moving but occurance of the deer is what causes the accident.
E:Correct reason to explain why the number of accidents involving deers have increased even after prolonged hunting season.Primary habitat would mean significantly more deers on road.

Hi,

I selected Option "C".
My thinking- as the option clearly anatomizes the 2 fundamentals here:
1. Deer somehow are not reducing in numbers, and even if they are, accidents are not reducing.
2. Deer induced accidents are still on rise.
Option "C" gives us a reason to believe that the deer who caused accident might be the reason for another accident, as it walks away unharmed "most" of the times.

Accident causes because of deer. so kill deer.
but even after killing no of accident increases
why?
(A)Incorrect Many recreational hunters hunt only once or twice per hunting season, regardless of the length of the season.
many hunted but problem increased.It doesn't solve the problem
(B) Incorrect The deer in the state have become accustomed to living in close proximity to humans and are often easy prey for hunters as a result.
So what. doesn't help to give the reason
(C) Incorrect Most automobile accidents involving deer result from cars swerving to avoid deer, and leave the deer in question unharmed.
Out of scope. not relevant
(D) Incorrect The number of drivers in the state has been gradually increasing over the past several years.
ok. number of driver increased. So it might be the reason behind the increas of accident so does no deer decreased.
not help in solving the apparent discepancy.
(E) CorrectA heavily used new highway recently built directly through the state’s largest forest, which is the primary habitat of the state's deer population
yes. this option help us in solving the problem. As the heavily used new highway passes through the state's largest forest So the chances of contact with the deer are increase and hence the no of accident.

i narrowed down to D and E. and E is more preferred as traffic is more in this road and this road passes through primary habitat of state's deer population.
D only says number of drivers has increased

===============>
As we know its a paradox question and we need to find out why we have increase in traffic accidents caused by deer, given the governor last year reintroduced a longer deer hunting season to encourage recreational hunting of the animals?


Option C - Most automobile accidents involving deer result from cars swerving to avoid deer, and leave the deer in question unharmed.

Now here what option C does? It explains the fact or behavior of the drivers behind the wheel when they see any deer on the road. It does't explain anything to resolve the paradox.
