It should be D.

correctly addressed ~2 days
incorrectly addressed ~ Xdays+

all(average) ~ 3days

For average to be 3 days, incorrectly addressed mail should be large proportion.

Nearly all mail that is correctly addressed arrives at its destination within two business days of being sent. In fact, correctly addressed mail takes longer than this only when it is damaged in transit. Overall, however, most mail arrives three business days or more after being sent. If the statements above are true, which one of the following must be true?

A) A large proportion of the mail that is correctly addressed is damaged in transit.
Incorrect mails could be the reason of 3 days or more

B) No incorrectly addressed mail arrives within two business days of being sent.
Not necesarrily incorrect

C) Most mail that arrives within two business days of being sent is correctly addressed.
this looks correct to me

D) A large proportion of mail is incorrectly addressed.
If this is true it also leaves the option that there could be many correct addressed mails arring late because of damage

E) More mail arrives within two business days of being sent than arrives between two and three business days after being sent.
IT does not agree with the argument

I will go with D.

Since we know that overall most mail arrives in 3 days or more and also that most mail correctly addressed arrives within 2 days. For this set of premises to be true a major proportion are incorrectly addressed.

I thought this was a good one, hence posted it.

The OA is D. The trick here is not to think about real-life logic but to derive the answer from the information given. Question tells us that majority of mail that is correctly addressed will arrive within two days, so if most mail is taking longer than that timeframe, it means that they were incorrectly addressed.
