### HideShow timer Statistics

The number of aircraft collisions on the ground is increasing because of the substantial increase in the number of flights operated by the airlines. Many of the fatalities that occur in such collisions are caused not by the collision itself, but by an inherent flaw in the cabin design of most aircraft, in which seats, by restricting asccess to emergency exists, impede escape. Therefore, to reduce the total number of fatalities that result annually from such collisions, the airlines should be required to remove all seats that restrict access to emergency exits.

Which one of the following proposals, if implemented together with the proposal made in the passage, would improve the prospects for achieving the stated objective of reducing fatalities.

B) The airlines should not be permitted to increase further the number of flights in order to offset the decrease in the number of seats on each aircraft.

C) Airport authorities should be required to streamline their passenger check-in procedures to accomodate the increase number of passengers
served by airlines.

D) Airport authorities should be required to streamline security precautions by making them less conspicuous without making them less effective.

E) The airlines should not be allowed to increase the ticket price for each passenger to offset the decrease in the number of seats on each aircraft.

go for D....

the cabin should be designed in such a way that the security precautions be raised without decreasing the effectiveness of the emergency exists....

My bad.....I would go with B.....Read it as "officials should increase flights"

B is correct 'cos if the number of flights increase (which is one of the reasons for collisions ) then the decrease in the seats in each flight wouldnt suffice the conditions given.

A is the same as the one mentioned in the passage "remove all seats that restrict access to emergency exits"- we are asked to find a different proposal other than the one mentioned in the passage

Actually the existing number of flights is itself a problem...So buying more is ruled out...This is in the premise

Thanks, I see it now.
Also,the 'which....would improve the prospects for achieving the stated objective of reducing fatalities' clarifies things.
