### HideShow timer Statistics

In a nature reserve in India, people are
sometimes attacked by tigers. It is believed that
the tigers will only attack people from behind. So
for the past few years many workers in the
reserve have started wearing masks depicting a
human face on the back of their heads. While
many area residents remain skeptical, no worker
wearing one of these masks has yet been
attacked by a tiger.

Which of the statements below, if true, would
best support the argument of those who

(A) Many workers in the nature reserve who
do not wear the masks have been
attacked recently by tigers.
(B) Workers in other nature reserves who
wear similar masks have not been
attacked recently by tigers.
(C) No tigers have been spotted on the nature
reserve in recent years.
(D) Many of the workers who wear the masks
also sing while they work in order to
frighten away any tigers in the area.
(E) The tigers have often been observed
attacking small deer from in front rather
than from behind.

There are two things we have to prove.....

existence of tiger as well as their attack on unmasked workers.

In B: two problems:

1st: we dont know whether there are tigers in that other Nature...
2nd: We dont know if the tigers actually attack ppl. Given is that Tiger doesn't attack the masked workers .. but May be they DONOT even attack the unmasked workers then .. there is not need of mask.

Hope this helps!

I'll pick B. This further validates the claim that wearing a mask that helps in preventing the tiger attacks is not only specific to this site, but it also works in similar situations at other sites. It confirms that the method works universally, irrespective of the site where it is deployed. I think that this supports the claim "no worker
wearing one of these masks has yet been attacked by a tiger."
