(B) A company that gained market share in the last five years,Smoke-Off Inc., does not employ any Arcadia residents.
(C) The majority of Fire-Away's annual revenue comes from maintaining existing smoke alarm systems.
(D) In the last five years, thirty percent of Arcadia residents have purchased new carbon monoxide alarms, which Fire-Away does not sell.
(E) Since Fire-Away relocated to Arcadia, the amount of fire-related damage to property in Arcadia has decreased by two-thirds.
