### HideShow timer Statistics

In Great Britain, the problem of violence among spectators of soccer games has become more and more serious, with hardly a weekend passing without many arrested and many injured from among those who supposedly came to see a sport.
Many suggestions have been made to combat this problem, most of them involving the introduction of more restrictions on the freedom of the crowds. Increased police presence at all games, enclosing supporters of opposing teams in pens, preventing the two groups from coming into contact with each other, and the use of membership cards with photographs which must be presented in order to gain access, have all been tried.
What is needed now is a deterrent factor. Increased fines, Saturday afternoon detention centers, and even jail terms must be introduced speedily and rigorously, if we are going to solve this problem.
Which of the following if true, would most strengthen the present view of the writer?

A) The British Government has just passed legislation outlawing alcoholic drink to be sold at or brought into soccer matches
B) Last week there were 36 arrested and 50 injured in fighting among the top soccer matches. An increase of 25% over the figures for the previous week
C) The soccer clubs should do more to encourage families to attend their games by improving facilities and making special enclosures
D) Violence is on the increase at soccer matches and the authorities must get tougher
E) Closed-circuit television has been set-up to monitor trouble-making elements in the crowd

I will take D.

Since violence is on the rise, the proposed factor can be of help.

E

The author concludes that many methods have been tried and now a "deterrent factor" must be introduced to reduce the voilence.
We have to strengthen the conclusion.
Only E gives another "deterrent factor"..
All other options only repeat information in the stimulus

Official answer is B. D merely states the author's claim. Only B gives further statistics which reinforce the author's view
