### HideShow timer Statistics

People tend to estimate the likelihood of an eventâ€™s occurrence according to its salience; that is, according to how strongly and how often it comes to their attention.
By placement and headlines, newspapers emphasize stories about local crime over stories about crime elsewhere and about many other major events.

It can be concluded on the basis of the statements above that, if they are true, which of the following is most probably also true?

(A) The language used in newspaper headlines about local crime is inflammatory and fails to respect the rights of suspects.
(B)The coverage of international events in newspapers is neglected in favor of the coverage of local events.
(C) Readers of local news in newspapers tend to overestimate the amount of crime in their own localities relative to the amount of crime in other places.
(D) None of the events concerning other people that are reported in newspapers is so salient in peopleâ€™s minds as their own personal experiences.
(E) The press is the news medium that focuses peopleâ€™s attention most strongly on local crimes.

Except C, others are based on assumptions/facts not mentioned in the argument at all.
I choose C.
