In 1970, only 10 percent of vacationers traveled by airplanes to their destination. By 1990, that number had increased to 35 percent. Now, in 1970 the risk of being injured in an airline accident was 1 chance per 300 flights. Due to changes in aircraft design, this risk decreased to 1 chance per 1000 flights by 1990.

(A) More vacationers were injured in airplane accidents in 1970 compared to 1990.
(B) More vacationers were injured in airplane accidents in 1990 compared to 1970.
(C) More vacationers traveled by car in 1970 than in 1990.
(D) Vacationers were less likely to be injured in a plane accident in 1970 compared to 1990.
(E) Vacationers were less likely to be injured in a plane accident in 1990 compared to 1970.

E is correct in my opinion. Since we we cant judge on number of people. it leaves us with D and E. Clearly 1 in 1000 is less than 1 in 300 flights. so D is eliminated,leaving us with only E

Target gmat against the odds.
