For-profit colleges serve far fewer students than either public or private non-profit colleges. At the same time, relative to non-profit colleges, for-profit colleges draw a disproportionate share of federal and state financial aid, such as tuition grants and guaranteed loans, for their students. It must be, then, that for-profit colleges enroll a greater proportion of financially disadvantaged students than do non-profit colleges.

In assessing the argument above, it would be most useful to compare

A the proportion of financially disadvantaged students served by public and private non-profit colleges

B the extent to which for-profit and non-profit colleges engage in fraudulent practices in helping their students obtain unneeded federal and state financial aid

C the number of students receiving federal and state financial aid at for-profit colleges and non-profit colleges

D the quality of education received by financially disadvantaged students at for-profit colleges and non-profit colleges

E the rates of default on loan repayments among graduates of for-profit and non-profit colleges

For-profit colleges serve far fewer students than either public or private non-profit colleges. At the same time, relative to non-profit colleges, for-profit colleges draw a disproportionate share of federal and state financial aid, such as tuition grants and guaranteed loans, for their students. It must be, then, that for-profit colleges enroll a greater proportion of financially disadvantaged students than do non-profit colleges.

In assessing the argument above, it would be most useful to compare

A the proportion of financially disadvantaged students served by public and private non-profit colleges - Incorrect comparison

B the extent to which for-profit and non-profit colleges engage in fraudulent practices in helping their students obtain unneeded federal and state financial aid

C the number of student receiving federal and state financial aid at for-profit colleges and non-profit colleges - We will be unable to assess the argument until we have the Total number of students enrolled in each of the colleges.

D the quality of education received by financially disadvantaged students at for-profit colleges and non-profit colleges - We are not concerned with quality.

E the rates of default on loan repayments among graduates of for-profit and non-profit colleges- Rates of default does not tell us anything. It is not necessary that only children who need financial aid will default on loan repayment.

I have chosen option B as the answer by eliminating all the other answer choices.
