Ronald: According to my analysis of the national economy, housing prices should not increase during the next six months unless interest rates drop significantly.
Mark: I disagree. One year ago, when interest rates last fell significantly, housing prices did not increase at all.
It can be inferred from the conversation above that Mark has interpreted Ronaldâ€™s statement to mean that
(A) housing prices will rise only if interest rates fall
(B) if interest rates fall, housing prices must rise
(C) interest rates and housing prices tend to rise and fall together
(D) interest rates are the only significant economic factor affecting housing prices
(E) interest rates are likely to fall significantly in the next six months

I think there could be an hesitation only between A and B.
But in my opinion B is better because not so extreme.
A say that it is ONLY because of the interest rates. However you can not infer this from the stem. Ronald just said that if the rates go down, the housing price will go up.

I chose B because A is too extreme, there is nothing that can let you think that interest rate is the only reason.
