One recent study of police records showed that the
number of crimes committed in 1990 rose 10 percent
over the previous year. Yet, another study showed
that the number of people who reported being
victims of a crime in 1990 rose 30 percent from the
previous year

Which one of the following resolves the apparent paradox?

A)People were more honest about the crimes
they committed in 1990 than in the previous
year.

B)The proportion of corporate crimes increased
from 1989 to 1990.

C)The number of criminals who were in turn
victimized themselves rose from 1989 to
1990.

D)The proportion of crimes that victimized
several people at once increased from 1989
to 1990

E)Because of worsening social conditions,
people felt more victimized in 1990 than in
1989

Please find my reasoning below.
Pre-think : some of the crimes involve several of victims,i.g. a heist involves 10 victims hurt during the gun fight.
(D) is along the line with this pre-thinking.

Yeah D actively resolves the paradox...
