### HideShow timer Statistics

Reviewing historical data, medical researchers in California found that counties with the largest number of television sets per capita have had the lowest incidence of a serious brain disease, mosquito-borne encephalitis. The researchers have concluded that people in these counties stay indoors more and thus avoid exposure to the disease.
The researchersâ€™ conclusion would be most strengthened if which of the following were true?

(A) Programs designed to control the size of disease-bearing mosquito populations have not affected the incidence of mosquito- borne encephalitis.
(B) The occupations of county residents affect their risk of exposure to mosquito-borne encephalitis more than does television-watching.
(C) The incidence of mosquito-borne encephalitis in counties with the largest number of television sets per capita is likely to decrease even further.
(D) The more time people in a county spend outdoors, the greater their awareness of the dangers of mosquito-borne encephalitis.
(E) The more television sets there are per capita in a county, the more time the average county resident spends watching television

(A) Programs designed to control the size of disease-bearing mosquito populations have not affected the incidence of mosquito- borne encephalitis.
out of scope
(B) The occupations of county residents affect their risk of exposure to mosquito-borne encephalitis more than does television-watching.
weakens by suggesting another cause
(C) The incidence of mosquito-borne encephalitis in counties with the largest number of television sets per capita is likely to decrease even further.
Cannot be confirmed
(D) The more time people in a county spend outdoors, the greater their awareness of the dangers of mosquito-borne encephalitis.
This runs counter to conclusion..

(E) The more television sets there are per capita in a county, the more time the average county resident spends watching television
CORRECT--strengthens by providing a link between simply owning a television and staying indoors.

Hi Guys,

Seems like the answers with me are wrong

So, can some one post the OA/OE for this question (if they are sure about their answers)?

I think E provides further proof that people stay indoors and avoid the mosquito b/c they watch TV longer.
