### HideShow timer Statistics

The advanced technology of ski boots and bindings has brought a dramatic drop in the incidence of injuries that occur on the slopes of ski resorts: from 9 injuries per 1,000 skiers in 1950 to 3 in 1980. As a result, the remainder of ski-related injuries, which includes all injuries occurring on the premises of a ski resort but not on the slopes, rose from 10 percent of all ski-related injuries in 1950 to 25 percent in 1980. The incidence of these injuries, including accidents such as falling down steps, increases with the amount of alcohol consumed per skier.

Which one of the following conflicts with information in the passage?

(A) The number of ski injuries that occurred on the slopes was greater in 1980 than in 1950.
(B) A skier was less likely to be injured on the slopes in 1950 than in 1980.
(C) The reporting of ski injuries became more accurate between 1950 and 1980.
(D) The total number of skiers dropped between 1950 and 1980.
(E) Some ski-related injuries occurred in 1980 to people who were not skiing.

we have already had a discussion on the first question, so I'll let it for those who don't know the answer...

for question II.
(A) The number of ski injuries that occurred on the slopes was greater in 1980 than in 1950.
###No Absolute or total numbers, just percentages
(B) A skier was less likely to be injured on the slopes in 1950 than in 1980.
### Contrast: 0.9 % is more than 0.3% (second line of the stem), not less
(C) The reporting of ski injuries became more accurate between 1950 and 1980.
### Who knows (and also Who cares?)
(D) The total number of skiers dropped between 1950 and 1980.
###Again total numbers...we have only percentages
(E) Some ski-related injuries occurred in 1980 to people who were not skiing.
### yes this is stated by the stem: "occurring on the premises of a ski resort"

(B)

Undoubtly B because options after B cann be correct as there is no information about them and A straightaway contradicts the facts
