A. Visitors to Las Vegas prefer indoor gambling to attending sporting events.

No linkages presented in the stimulus regarding --- whether preference for indoor gambling causes low attendance for sporting events. Both are 'separate'; and no cause-and-effect phenomenon can be inferred solely by the table data.

Would NOT help explain

B. Seattle’s football team recently lost some key players.

If the Seattle football team lost key players, this will lead to poor performance -- hence, low scores in the Table for Seattle’s football team

Would help explain

C. Philadelphia's high schools have an excellent hockey program.

If Philadelphia's high schools have an excellent hockey program, it will lead to high scores for Hockey, as evident through the 2nd highest score in the Table for Philadelphia's hockey team.

Would help explain

Are the Data Insights questions being reflected in the Error Log?
I couldn't trace these attempts in the Error Log.

Official Explanation

Statement 1
The preferences of visitors to Las Vegas don’t explain the behavior of the people who live there, so they don’t explain why such a low percentage of Las Vegas’s actual population attends sporting events.

Statement 2
Seattle’s football team having become weaker could explain why other sports have become more popular in Seattle.

Statement 3
If many high school students in Philadelphia play hockey, they and their families might come to be more interested in watching it than in watching other sports.

This seems like too much outside info to be honest. Is this from OG?

(Sort ↕ the table by clicking on the headers)

For each of the following statements select Would help explain if it would, if true, help explain some of the information in the preceding table. Otherwise select Would not help explain.

I got the answers right, but I still feel the question is a little incomplete, such that the numbers and city names are given along with the names of the sports, but we do not know what the numbers represent, they could represent anything, number of visitors, number of spectators, money made from the sports, losses incurred in matches, anything, leaving the data open to any kind of interpretation. Sajjad1994, can you please let us know if this is the entire question or if something is missing?

Hi Sajjad, since the previous year percentage of population who attend sporting events cannot be determine, may I ask how can we conclude that other sports team have become more popular in Seattle just because the percentage of population attending their events is higher?

the second question's answer is really not derivable.
First of all, there is no paragraph to really give any info about the graph table, there's just one line and also in the third question there's a mention of "schools" and yet were not given info about these sports taking place in schools or any connection of these sports with school teams or programs whatsoever.
