Jessica jumped off a boat into the freezing cold water of the Southern Pacific. About 25 feet away from her, she could see a 22 foot long tiger shark, one of the most feared aquatic predators in the world. Despite her close proximity to the dangerous shark, Jessica remained perfectly calm.

Which of the following statements best explain why Jessica remained perfectly calm despite the proximity of the shark?

A Jessica had survived an encounter with a large tiger shark three years earlier, although she had lost her left leg in the encounter.

B Because of the loud noises of the ocean and the boat, Jessica could not hear the shark's approach.

C Jessica could see that the tiger shark was being pursued by a 28-foot-long great white shark, the most feared aquatic predator in the Southern Pacific.

D Jessica was surrounded by a thick steel cage that no shark could penetrate.

E Jessica was a strong swimmer who had won several swimming competitions while in college.

Hi,
Could you please categorise this CR questions. I feel it is unlikely that we will see such kind of questions in GMAT.
