In Patton City, days are categorized as having heavy rainfall (more than two inches), moderate rainfall (more than

one inch, but no more than two inches), light rainfall (at least a trace, but no more than one inch), or no rainfall.

In 1990, there were fewer days with light rainfall than in 1910 and fewer with moderate rainfall, yet total rainfall

for the year was 20 percent higher in 1990 than in 1910. If the statements above are true, then it is also

possible that in Patton City

The main point-

(number of rainy days in 1910 > number of rainy days in 1900)

doesn't mean

(rainfall in 1910 > rainfall in 1900)

pretty obvious as the amount of rain in a rainy day coupled with number of rainy days will determine that.

A. the number of days with heavy rainfall was lower in 1990 than in 1910

There is possibility.B. the number of days with some rainfall, but no more than two inches, was the same in 1990 as in 1910

False. it is greater in 1910 than in 1900.C. the number of days with some rainfall, but no more than two inches, was higher in 1990 than in 1910

False. it is greater in 1910 than in 1900.D. the total number of inches of rain that fell on days with moderate rainfall in 1990 was more than twice what it

had been in 1910

1 inch < moderate (1910) < 2 inches

1 inch < moderate (1900) < 2 inches

moderate (1900) > 2 *moderate (1910)

Impossible. simple arithmetic. E. the average amount of rainfall per month was lower in 1990 than in 1910

the rainfall in 1900 is 20% higher than in 1910.

So the average amount in 1900 has to be higher than in 1910.

Wrong.A is the most suitable one. Correct.
