### 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.

very good question and i have to read the question and choices twice
My pic is B - if only few metros will have pure aquariums then visitors who are coming would like to see those rather than seeing zoo that is also present in there area as well

got it at last why D is wrong. Nice one thats why need to put this analysis for all:
(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.
We are talking about visitors or vacationers but still if it is true it weaks the argument

(B) Virtually all large metropolitan areas have zoos, whereas only a few large metropolitan areas have pure aquariums.
A plausible reason why vacationers would be more interested in visiting a pure aquarium than a zoo

(C) Over the last ten years, newly constructed pure aquariums have outnumbered newly established zoos by a factor of two to one.
Proportion of aquariums to zoos is not an issue

(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.
Probability of visit is not an issue

(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.
Size of zoo is not an issue
