Hillsburgh and Nansensville are two major metropolitan areas only 50 miles apart. Until recently, the only road connecting the two cities was a traffic-clogged, six-lane Interstate Highway. Six years in the making, the Metro Expressway, a four-lane road connecting the two cities, was hoped to relieve this congestion. After the first month, however, the traffic along the Interstate Highway has not improved.

Which of the following, if true, could account for the continued traffic congestion along the Interstate Highway?

A) The Metro Expressway opened up in July, a month when many of the citizens leave for vacation.
B) During the month that the Metro Expressway opened, the railway workers who service the train connecting the two cities went on strike.
C) The new expressway is made up of a high-grade asphalt that is said to wear down less over time than the asphalt on the Interstate Highway.
D) The Hillsburgh Gazette reports that police activity along the Interstate Highway has decreased since many police are now patrolling the Metro Expressway.
E) In the next five years, both cities plan on building another expressway connecting both cities.

I thought the answer would be D - as police activity is high along Metro Expressway , people prefer Interstate , which is seeing lesser police patrolling...
How could B qualify .. it deals with railroad ... is not it out of context here ?

Good one as usual !!

B) During the month that the Metro Expressway opened, the railway workers who service the train connecting the two cities went on strike.

The railway strike resulting in commuters using the Metro Expressway , so the traffic congestion continued..

Hi,

There are two cities 50 miles apart. A new expressway has been constructed in addition to one existing highway. The creation of a new highway was expected to decongest the existing highway. After 1 month, the traffic state on the highway has not improved.

Now lets look at B and D..
first D..
D) The Hillsburgh Gazette reports that police activity along the Interstate Highway has decreased since many police are now patrolling the Metro Expressway.
The police patrolling has reduced in expressway. two points on it
1) Firstly Patrolling should be an incentive to people to use those highway for safety concerns. The reduction in Patrolling should be a reason for people to move away from that highway and so in turn should have further decongested the interstate highway
2) Even if we assume that Patrolling is some thing which people want to avoid. we are nowhere told that the Expressway or the Highway, which one has more patrolling. We just know that few police activity has shifted to the new expressway..

Therefore this choice cannot be correct


Lets see B now
B) During the month that the Metro Expressway opened, the railway workers who service the train connecting the two cities went on strike.
This choice tells us that the same month the expressway was inaugurated, the railway workers went on strike.
So the reduction in traffic that was expected has not happened as the railway commuters are now using roads to move between the towns.
This NEW and EXCESS commuters has not allowed the traffic to get decongest


Hope it helps you in realising why B is CORRECT.

Excellent explanation ... Thanks !
+1 kudos
I think my bane was assuming too much in the "police" factor ...
Option D more directly fills the hole to resolve the paradox !

C, D & E are out of scope. There was a tie between A & B. But A clearly states many people leave for vacation in July means there should be less & less congestion each day since people are leaving and the traffic congestion would only be one way.
I chose B because there is no train service both ways so people are stuck in traffic.

C,D and E out - Does not tell why the traffic did not improve in the first month
A - citizens leave for vacation - but do they leave via Interstate/Flights/Rails? - Incorrect.
B - Correct. Makes sense too.

Hi!
Kindly help me assessing why not A could be the answer!
As option A is in scope and relies on traffic congestion.
Thanks

the question states "which of the following, if true"....it means that all the option are true and we have to pick one that is best supported by the question stem.
A) The Metro Expressway opened up in July, a month when many of the citizens leave for vacation. we don't know what type of transportation did they use. we can hold on to this option.
B) During the month that the Metro Expressway opened, the railway workers who service the train connecting the two cities went on strike. the questions states, after the new 4lane highway, the congestion stays the same. there must be some kind of relief after opening the new highway. There might be some other factors which are causing this congestion, right? This option perfectly explains that the train workers strike is causing the congestion, so people who usually take train now are forced to drive which is causing the congestion. This option is better than A, so eliminate A.

does this make any sense?? :roll:

Thought the ME was opened , the congestion on IH did not improve. Which implies there might have been a issue with the ME or the population increased manyfold times. Option B is tells us there was an issue with ME, hence the right solution.

A,C,D,E are all out of scope.

E) In the next five years, both cities plan on building another expressway connecting both cities.


The answer is B

After opening of the Metro Expressway there should have been less people using the Interstate highway but that is not so .
One reason could be more people travelling on both the highways than the usual number of people .
Another reason could be that people thought because of the new metro expressway less people would be using Interstate highway , so it led to more number of people on Interstate highway .


So only B is the only possible answer

How the HELL can B the answer

Its mentioned that AFTER THE FIRST MONTH , THE TRAFFIC HAS NOT IMPROVED

It means not in that month but in next month the traffic was again a problem

So workers going on strike in that very month cant be the reason ....

They should have told in the next month workers went on STRIKE


and IF ITS ABOUT THE SAME MONTH

Then why is A wrong? It has a reason for that too

After the first month situation not improved -- it means we're now in the 2nd month and looking at the stats of the very first month.

so consider "after the first month" means "it been a month" and situation not improved.

Hope this clears your doubt.

Hi rocko911,

We need to pick the choice that sticks well to the SCOPE of the ARGUMENT.
SCOPE: Two cities mentioned - Hillsburgh or Nansensville, Highway that connects Hillsburgh or Nansensville, Opening Month

so here is why B is much better choice, which gives rationale that does not go out of SCOPE.

Possibility of travel options:
A - Trains, highway etc.
B - NO TRAINS, so MOSTLY highway

Possibility Number of people:
A - MANY people -- MANY is not a significant percentage.
B - Because of NO Trains, almost ALL who go from one city to other has no other way but choose HIGHWAY. so Number should be higher.

Possibility of Places to go:
A - People leaving from Hillsburgh or Nansensville might go for vacation to ANY other third city for vacation. less possibility of congestion on highway.
B - Well there were NO TRAINS BETWEEN the TWO CITIES that ARGUMENT focuses on. so high possibility of congestion on expressway.
