Nearly all mail that is correctly addressed arrives at its destination within two business days of being sent. In fact, correctly addressed mail takes longer than this only when it is damaged in transit. Overall, however, most mail arrives three business days or more after being sent.

If the statements above are true, which one of the following must be true?

(A) A large proportion of the mail that is correctly addressed is damaged in transit.

(B) No incorrectly addressed mail arrives within two business days of being sent.

(C) Most mail that arrives within two business days of being sent is correctly addressed.

(D) A large proportion of mail is incorrectly addressed.

(E) More mail arrives within two business days of being sent than arrives between two and three business days after being sent.

Unable to decide between 'A' & 'D'.

Can anyone of you refute either one of them.

Dan, Is this a LSAT CR

I will go with C

~all mail (correct address) -> comes in 2 days
mail (with damage + correct address -> taken longer ( 3 days)
overall mail comes within 2-3 days

(A) A large proportion of the mail that is correctly addressed is damaged in transit.

- no where can it be proved.

(B) No incorrectly addressed mail arrives within two business days of being sent.

(C) Most mail that arrives within two business days of being sent is correctly addressed.

- only if not damaged.. keep this

(D) A large proportion of mail is incorrectly addressed.

(E) More mail arrives within two business days of being sent than arrives between two and three business days after being sent.
- I dont think we have enough information or data to support this.

tough one. C seems correct.

but difficult to agree with D because most mails that take 3 or more days to arreive could include the correctly addressed but damaged mails. if this is the case, then D wouldnot be correct...................
