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.

Please, show me where I am wrong in my reasonings, because I am so uncomfortable with CR (I choose E at first, but I found that I was wrong, and now I am trying to learn how is every choice incorrect)

Well, we must take the answer choices for granted, so
if A is true, then the numbers of skiers was graeter too
if B is true, it contradicts the reduced chances of obtaining an injury on the slope in 1980
if C is true, the fact that they became more accurate shows that the estimates in the stimulus are correct
if D is true, it undermines the advances in techs but it supports the increase in the number of injuries on the premises ( in what way does D influence the stimulus?)
if E is true, this has no influence on the stats in the stimulus

By the way, I didn't manage to figure out the conclusion. Is there any?

Weaken question

Pre-thinking

Our task here is to find an option that cannot be true in relation to the information that we have. We just have data and facts here so let's analyze the options


POE:

(A) The number of ski injuries that occurred on the slopes was greater in 1980 than in 1950.
This is a possible scenario and it is not conflicting with the information in the passage.

(B) A skier was less likely to be injured on the slopes in 1950 than in 1980.
This is not possible because we are given in the passage that people were less likely to be injured in slopes in 1980 than in 1950.

(C) The reporting of ski injuries became more accurate between 1950 and 1980.
This is a possible scenario and it is not conflicting with the information in the passage.

(D) The total number of skiers dropped between 1950 and 1980.
This is a possible scenario and it is not conflicting with the information in the passage.

(E) Some ski-related injuries occurred in 1980 to people who were not skiing.
This is a possible scenario and it is not conflicting with the information in the passage.
