One possible solution to the problem of traffic congestion is to establish special bus routes from the suburbs to the major business and commercial centers of a city. These buses would make limited stops and travel in traffic lanes designated solely for their use and so provide fast and efficient travel options to citizens.

Which of the following, if true, would proponents of the plan outlined above most reasonably cite as evidence for the soundness of the plan?

A. Many people claim to enjoy the comfort and independence offered by their automobiles.
B. Studies show that over half of the automobile traffic on city streets consists of commuters entering the city for work or to shop.
C. Many cities lack viable public transportation networks.
D. Maintenance and upkeep of streets and roads accounts for a large portion of any city’s budget.
E. Much of the traffic in any given city results from the influx of tourists and sight-seers.
