### HideShow timer Statistics

In the United States, vacationers account for more than half of all visitors to what are technically called "pure aquariums" but for fewer than one quarter of all visitors to zoos, which usually include a "zoo aquarium" of relatively modest scope.
Which of the following, if true, most helps to account for the difference described above between visitors to zoos and visitors to pure aquariums?

(A) In cities that have both a zoo and a pure aquarium, local residents are twice as likely to visit the aquarium as they are to visit the zoo.
(B) Virtually all large metropolitan areas have zoos, whereas only a few large metropolitan areas have pure aquariums.
(C) Over the last ten years, newly constructed pure aquariums have outnumbered newly established zoos by a factor of two to one.
(D) People who visit a zoo in a given year are two times more likely to visit a pure aquarium that year than are people who do not visit a zoo.
(E) The zoo aquariums of zoos that are in the same city as a pure aquarium tend to be smaller than the aquariums of zoos that have no pure aquarium nearby.

(A) In cities that have both a zoo and a pure aquarium, local residents are twice as likely to visit the aquarium as they are to visit the zoo. [this actually weakens]
(B) Virtually all large metropolitan areas have zoos, whereas only a few large metropolitan areas have pure aquariums. [ how is this related to vacationers ?]
(C) Over the last ten years, newly constructed pure aquariums have outnumbered newly established zoos by a factor of two to one. [what has this to do with vacationers ?]
(D) People who visit a zoo in a given year are two times more likely to visit a pure aquarium that year than are people who do not visit a zoo. [this is the only one that works for me]
(E) The zoo aquariums of zoos that are in the same city as a pure aquarium tend to be smaller than the aquariums of zoos that have no pure aquarium nearby. [how is this related to vacationers ?]

I also think it is B , since all the big cities have zoos and only few cities have aquariums , vacationers account for more percentage of total visitors. what is OA?

i am going with C ..only cause..more aquariums than zoos..more likely vacationers might run into em..

B assumes that people who live in large metropolitan cities are the ones doing vacations outside of their big city..however..what if more people are visiting from outside the country or are visiting from the bondoxes???

B is close..but i'd go with C..just by assuming more aquariums..more visits
