### HideShow timer Statistics

Hanifah: A recent survey shows that there are fewer people who drive only on weekends than there are people who drive to work each weekday. As a result, weekend-only drives are involved in fewer accidents. Therefore, insurance rates should be adjusted so that rates would be significantly higher for the regular commuters.
Katsu: I canâ€™t agree with your conclusion. The same study also showed that, although weekend-only drives are involved in fewer accidents, when considered on the basis of accidents-per-mile-driven their records are worse than those of regular commuters. Therefore, insurance rates should be adjusted to increase the rates of weekend-only drivers over those of regular commuters.
In the conversation above, Katus does which one of the following?
(A) Katsu disagrees with each of the premises of the argument that Hanifah offers.
(B) Katsu cites additional evidence stating that weekend-only drivers are actually involved in a greater number of accidents than regular commuters.
(C) Katsu accuses Hanifah of using inaccurate statistical information.
(D) Kasu proves that Hanifah didnâ€™t read the entire report that was cited.
(E) Katsu disagrees with Hanifah over how accident records are to be evaluated for insurance rates.

Hanifah:
1) Recent survey shows that there are fewer people who drive only on weekends
2) There are more people who drive to work each weekday
3) As a result, weekend-only drives are invovled in fewer accidents
3) Therefore, insurance rates should be adjusted so that rates would be significantly higher for regular commuters <-- conclusion

Katsu:
1) Do not agress with your conclusion
2) Same study also showed that weekend-only drives are invovled in fewer accidents
3) But Same study also showed weekend-only drivers are worse than regular commuters when considered on basis of accidents per mile driven
4) Therefore, insurance rates shoul dbe adjusted to increase the rate of weekend only drivers over those of regular commuters <-- conclusion

(A) Katsu disagrees with each of the premises of the argument that Hanifah offers.
- Katsu does not disagree with the premise, but the argument

(B) Katsu cites additional evidence stating that weekend-only drivers are actually involved in a greater number of accidents than regular commuters.
- Katsu did not cite additional evidence, but gave another side of the same case study they used. Besides, Katsu did not say weekend only drivers are invovled in a more accidents, he only said their record is worse. What this record is, we're not sure.

(C) Katsu accuses Hanifah of using inaccurate statistical information.
- No such thing in the passage.

(D) Kasu proves that Hanifah didnâ€™t read the entire report that was cited.
- No such thing either

(E) Katsu disagrees with Hanifah over how accident records are to be evaluated for insurance rates.
- This is the answer. Katsu uses 'accidents per mile driven' while Hanifah relies on who uses the road more often.

E it is.
