### HideShow timer Statistics

Most cars are built to last for more than 12 years, and if serviced regularly, the average older car is well equipped to meet the common daily demands of running errands and commuting to work. Nevertheless, the typical American driver buys or leases a new car every five years.

The statements above, if true, best support which of the following conclusions?

A. New cars offer marked improvements in performance compared to older cars.
B. Cars that are no longer being used by their original drivers command a large market.
C. Today’s cars are more durable than cars made in the past due to advances in production technology.
D. The purchase or lease of new cars must be explained by something other than the ability of cars to serve the demands of everyday driving.
E. Cars should not last as long as they do now.

The statements above, if true, best support which of the following conclusions?

A. New cars offer marked improvements in performance compared to older cars.(performance is irrelevant)
B. Cars that are no longer being used by their original drivers command a large market.(can't conclude)
C. Today’s cars are more durable than cars made in the past due to advances in production technology.( no information)
D. The purchase or lease of new cars must be explained by something other than the ability of cars to serve the demands of everyday driving.( Keep)
E. Cars should not last as long as they do now.(no information)

Will go with choice D.

Thanks
