### HideShow timer Statistics

Studies have shown that the number of times a car breaks down per year is significantly dependent on whether the owner conducts regular maintenance for the vehicle. Most customers who buy luxury cars are extremely particular about the maintenance of the cars. The owners of luxury cars who employ chauffeurs are more careful in the maintenance of their cars than the owners of economy cars are. Therefore, such luxury car owners will suffer fewer car breakdowns than the owners of economy cars.

Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the conclusion drawn above?
A. On average, luxury cars driven by chauffeurs have almost the same number of breakdowns that sports cars driven by car owners do.
B.
Most chauffeurs employed by luxury car owners are trained to fix breakdowns.
C Only luxury cars come with a special training program for the drivers of the cars, a program focused on the careful handling of these cars.
D
On average, the cost per breakdown in a luxury car is not higher than the cost per breakdown in an economy car.
E
Many luxury cars give the same mileage per unit of fuel that most economy cars do.

A - SUV out of scope
B - Conclusion is about number of breakdowns, not fixing it
C - Strengthens, albeit slightly. If drivers are trained, this will result in lesser breakdowns
D - We are not worried about costs, out of scope
E - Mileage, Out of scope
