The Farmsley Center for the Performing Arts, designed by a world-renowned architect, was built 10 years ago in downtown Metropolis. A recent study shows that, on average, a person who attends a performance at the Farmsley Center spends $83 at downtown businesses on the day of the performance. Citing this report, the chairman of the Farmsley Center’s Board of Trustees claims that the Farmsley Center has been a significant source of the economic revitalization of downtown Metropolis.

Which of the following, if true, most strongly supports the chairman’s contention?

(A) The Metropolis Chamber of Commerce honored the Farmsley chairman this year for his contributions to the city.
(B) Restaurants near the Farmsley Center tend to be more expensive than restaurants in outlying areas.
(C) The Farmsley Center is the only building in Metropolis designed by a world-renowned contemporary architect.
(D) For major theater companies on national tours, the Farmsley Center is the first choice among venues in downtown Metropolis.
(E) Many suburbanites visit downtown Metropolis on weekends in order to see performances at the Farmsley Center.

+ 1 for E.

Stimulus :
The Farmsley Center has been a significant source of the economic revitalization of downtown Metropolis because, on average, anyone who attends a performance at the Farmsley Center spends 83$ at downtown businesses on the day of the performance.


(A) The Metropolis Chamber of Commerce honored the Farmsley chairman this year for his contributions to the city. --> Irrelevant
(B) Restaurants near the Farmsley Center tend to be more expensive than restaurants in outlying areas. --> Out of scope
(C) The Farmsley Center is the only building in Metropolis designed by a world-renowned contemporary architect. --> Irrelevant
(D) For major theater companies on national tours, the Farmsley Center is the first choice among venues in downtown Metropolis. --> Though this option looks enticing, there is a possibility that not much companies embark on tours, instead very few opt for tours, in that case it is no strengthener
(E) Many suburbanites visit downtown Metropolis on weekends in order to see performances at the Farmsley Center. --> Correct, if all these suburbanites visiting Farmsley Center spends $83 per person on performance day resulting in significant revenues for Farmsley Center and thus significant source of the economic revitalization of downtown Metropolis

Hence, E.

A precise answer can be that the people who visit the performance make up for the cost and not the theater companies as per the premises. So we must also contemplate on whether the people are reaching for the shows or not even if the companies are coming to the place.
