### HideShow timer Statistics

Television programming experts maintain that with each 1% increase in the prime-time ratings of a television station there is a 3.5% increase in the number of people who watch its evening news program. However, in the last ten years at Channel NTR, there was only one year of extremely high prime-time ratings and during that year, fewer people than ever watched Channel NTRâ€™s evening news program.

Which of the following conclusions can properly be drawn from the statements above?
(A) When a news program has good ratings, the channel as a whole will have good ratings.
(B) The programming experts neglected to consider daytime news programs.
(C) The year of high ratings at NTR was a result of two hit shows which were subsequently canceled because of contractual problems.
(D) The ten-year period in question is not representative of normal viewing patterns.
(E) Prime-time ratings are not the only factor affecting how many people watch an evening news program.

E

Since the experts view for Channel NTR didn't hold good, their pattern doesn't have a one-one direct relationship.

What happened to Channel NTR does not confirm to TV experts. Therefore, there must be something else, as (E) says.

I also go for E
D was also interesting but eventually the question ask for a conclusion, D would be too extreme.
