Clear B.

B has to be true for the argument to be valid.

Tricky.

Here is my solution.

The proportion of $40K+ households is highest in one county, but another county has a higher proportion of$60K & up.

If the county with the $40K+ households had none between 40-60k, that would imply each of those households had a income higher than$60K, which would contradict the claim that another county
had the highest ratio of \$60K+ houses.
