Mayville Airport and Newcomb Airport have the same number of flight departures each day.
Mayville Airport experiences 26 departure delays per 100 flights, while Newcomb Airport
experiences 20 departure delays per 100 flights. When delays caused by bad weather are
disregarded, Mayville Airport has 5 fewer departure delays per 100 flights than Newcomb
Airport does. Which of the following conclusions is best supported by the information given
above?
A) Bad weather causes a greater number of departure delays at Mayville Airport than at
Newcomb Airport.
b) On average, the weather at Mayville Airport is worse than it is at Newcomb Airport.
c) Mechanical problems cause a greater number of delays at Newcomb Airport than at
Mayville Airport.
d) The fleet of airplanes leaving from Newcomb Airport is better equipped to handle inclement
weather than the fleet of airplanes leaving from Mayville Airport.
e) Mayville Airport experiences a greater number of arrival delays per 100 flights than
Newcomb Airport does.

[Reveal] Spoiler:
A

Option A should have:

A. Bad weather causes a greater number of departure delays [per 100 flights] at Mayville Airport than at
Newcomb Airport

There might be a possible case that total number of departures at airport M is less and in that case original option A is not true. So, comparison should be between "Number of departures per 100 flights" rather than "Number of departure".

Correct me if I am wrong.

Imo A
Critical reasoning question really test your concentration and if you miss some word or read some phrase you are going to fall for the trap .
Here also C is a trap .

well, yeah, it may be true if the elements of Font, and Word Size are not considered. I really have a big problem with these elements.
Also, since I practice GMAT, I rarely read informal English, such as comment in English, magazines, books (because grammar is not all correct), and so on. I even try to practice formal language by speaking and listening.

I did not get the answer..
-> M airport experiences 26 delay per 100 flights..
-> N airport experiences 20 delay per 100 flights..
due to bad weather , Mayville Airport has 5 fewer departure delays per 100 flights than Newcomb Airport does
that means there is less departure delay is taking place at M than airport N...due to weather
now option 1 says exactly opposite...
Please explain.. n tell me if i am wrong somewhere...
Thanks ..


-> M airport experiences 26 delay per 100 flights..
-> N airport experiences 20 delay per 100 flights..

When the delays caused by bad weather is disregarded the number changes to

M - M Delay per 100 flights
N - M+5 Delay per 100 Flights

Lets Say M is 10

M - 10 per 100 flights
N - 15 per 100 flights


So we can conclude that due to bad weather more flights gets delayed at M airport (16) compared to N(5). Hope its clear


Thanks for the clear explanation !!
