### HideShow timer Statistics

If the city council institutes new parking regulations, city revenues will surely increase, since studies have conclusively shown that, if such parking regulations are put into effect, there is an increase in parking violations, and an increase in parking violations will result in a greater number of parking fines collected.

If the statements in the passage are true, which one of the following must also be true?
(A) Unless there is an increase in the number of parking violations in the city, city revenues will not increase.
(B) If the city council institutes new parking regulations, the council will fall from favor with the citizens.
(C) The city council will institute new parking regulations only if an increase in city revenues can be expected to result.
(D) If the city council’s new regulations cause more parking violators to be ticketed, the city revenues will increase.
(E) Unless the city institutes a complex system of parking regulations, the city cannot expect traffic violations to increase.

If the statements in the passage are true, which one of the following must also be true?

(A) Unless there is an increase in the number of parking violations in the city, city revenues will not increase ---> we don't know that for sure city revenues can increase from other things.

(B) If the city council institutes new parking regulations, the council will fall from favor with the citizens. ---> we don't know that for sure.

(C) The city council will institute new parking regulations only if an increase in city revenues can be expected to result. ---> we don't know that for sure we can't tell what the council thoughts.

(D) If the city council’s new regulations cause more parking violators to be ticketed, the city revenues will increase. ---> correct !

(E) Unless the city institutes a complex system of parking regulations, the city cannot expect traffic violations to increase. ---> we don't know if the system is complex or not.

only (D) must also be true.

D leaves open the possibility that more parking violators might not equal more parking violations.

Isnt it the other way around?

I mean when the city is closely watching for violations the range of violators would increase.
