### HideShow timer Statistics

9. In order to relieve congestion in the airspace near
the airports of a certain country, transportation offi-
cials propose sending passengers by new rapid trains
between the country's major airport and several
small cities within a 300-mile radius of it. This plan
was proposed even though the officials realized that
it is the major airport that is congested, not those in
the small cities.

The plan to relieve congestion would work best if which of the following were true about the major airport?
(A) Rail tickets between the airport and the small
cities will most likely cost more than the
current air tickets for those routes.
(B) Most passengers who frequently use the airport
prefer to reach their cities of destination
exclusively by air, even if they must change
planes twice.
(C) There are feasible changes in the airport's
traffic control system which would signifi-
cantly relieve congestion.
(D) Some of the congestion the airport experiences
could be relieved if more flights were sched-
uled at night and at other off-peak hours.
(E) A significant proportion of the airport's traffic
consists of passengers transferring between
international flights and flights to the small
cities.
