IMO C

C. Lakeside High has graduated, a lower percentage of its attendees than has Suburban High.
attended students: 60%, output graduated students--25%

which is less than suburban ratio of 40% , and 75%

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



C

The most proper inference will be the choice that MUST be true if the statements in the stimulus are true. Any choices that might be true but do not have to be true can be
eliminated.

Suburban High enrolled 40% of the town's students and produced 75% of its graduates, so Lakeside High must have enrolled 60% of the town's students, producing 25% of its graduates. Lakeside has more students but fewer graduates, meaning that it graduated a lower percentage of its attendees than Suburban did. This makes (C) correct.

(A) could be true but doesn't necessarily follow from the stimulus. We know that the percentage of enrollees and graduates at each school has been constant, but that doesn't say anything about the total number of students, which may have increased, decreased, or stayed the same. (B), (D), and (E) are out of scope. And we have no information about the geographical areas in which students live, so (B) and (D) are out anyway.
