Popular culture in the United States has become Europeanized to an extent unimaginable twenty-five years ago. Not many people then drank wine with meals, and no one drank imported mineral water. No idea would have been more astonishing that that Americans would pay to watch soccer games. Such thoughts arise because of a report that the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials has just adopted a proposal to develop the country’s first comprehensive interstate system of routes for bicycles.

The information given, if true, best supports which of the following?


A. Long-distance bicycle routes are used in Europe.

B. Drinking imported mineral water is a greater luxury than drinking imported wine.

C. United States culture has benefited from exposure to foreign ideas.

D. Most Europeans make regular use of bicycles.

E. The influence of the United States on European culture has assumed unprecedented proportions in the last twenty-five years.

IMO the answer should be A. D is extreme with 'most' and E is extreme with 'unprecedented'.

A. Long-distance bicycle routes are used in Europe--> Correct answer after you connect the dots, subtle fact, nothing too extreme

B. Drinking imported mineral water is a greater luxury than drinking imported wine--> No hint for comparison

C. United States culture has benefited from exposure to foreign ideas--> No mention in excerpt

D. Most Europeans make regular use of bicycles--> Too extreme to be true

E. The influence of the United States on European culture has assumed unprecedented proportions in the last twenty-five years--> Too extreme to be true

Causality in Conclusion is addressing the "routes for bicycles" and not the "use of bicycles".

Hence, Between Choices A and D, Ans Choice A seems to be a better option.
