### HideShow timer Statistics

Heard on an episode of You and Yours on Radio 4 (4th July, 2001): "There are about 1
million houses bought a year in Britain, but there are 9 million viewings. This suggests
that most people who view houses for sale have no intention of buying."
Which of the following, if true, would most undermine the argument presented?

a. a survey indicating that a large number of people who view houses tend to
like what they see.
b. Government statistics that point to the possibility that the number of
houses on sale is far fewer than the number of houses demanded by market
forces.
c. phone calls from dozens of listeners to You and Yours who disapprove of
d. An article in a national journal showing that house prices are steadily
increasing.
e. A questionnaire handed round to a thousand couples who have recently
bought houses, indicating that they viewed on average only three houses
before making their final choice.

B would undermine the argument. The conclusion that the buy ratio is only 1/9 is explained by the fact that there are too few houses instead of people's intention of buying.

B would definitely undermine it. Less houses and more people means most them will be interested and hence the demand.
