The City Opera Company does not sell tickets to individual performances; it sells only season tickets that admit the holders to all performances during a given season. Patrons who retain their tickets from one season to the next receive a 10% discount. From 1990 to 1994, attendance at the company’s performances during each season averaged 78% of the opera house’s capacity, and an average of 500 new (non-retained) season tickets were sold each season. From 1995 to 2000, average attendance rose to 85% of capacity, but the average number of new (non-retained) season tickets sold per year dropped to 300.

If the above statements are true, which one of the following can be properly inferred from them?

A. The average number of existing season ticket holders who retained their seats from year to year increased between 1994 and 2000.
B. The proportion of suburban residents among City Opera season ticket holders increased in the years between 1990-1995.
C. In 1995, the City Opera Company moved into a new opera house with a larger seating capacity than its old house.
D. In 1989, the City Opera Company moved into a new opera house with a smaller seating capacity than its old house.
E. Overall interest in attending opera performances rose between 1990 and 2000.

Following the statements provided
1. The average number of existing season ticket holders who retained their seats from year to year increased between 1994 and 2000. Correct. The number of (non retained) season tickets in the two mentioned time periods fell while the occupancy rose. This would suggest buyers of season tickets were falling while the retainers were increasing.

2.The proportion of suburban residents among City Opera season ticket holders increased in the years between 1990-1995. Incorrect. The passage does not mention anything about suburban residents.

3. In 1995, the City Opera Company moved into a new opera house with a larger seating capacity than its old house. Incorrect. The passage does mention that the seating capacity increased over the time period from 77% to 85% but that could've been in the existing opera house as well, there is no clear mention about moving to a larger house.

4. In 1989, the City Opera Company moved into a new opera house with a smaller seating capacity than its old house. Incorrect. Same reasoning as the above point.

5. Overall interest in attending opera performances rose between 1990 and 2000. Incorrect. Had the overall interest grown, the average number of new (non-retained) season tickets sold per year would have increased.
