HideShow timer Statistics

The proportion of women among students enrolled in higher education programs has increased over the past decades. This is partly shown by the fact that in 1959, only 11 percent of the women between twenty and twenty-one were enrolled in college, while in 1981, 30 percent of the women between twenty and twenty-one were enrolled in college.
To evaluate the argument above, it would be most useful to compare 1959 and 1981 with regard to which of the following characteristics?
(A) The percentage of women between twenty and twenty-one who were not enrolled in college
(B) The percentage of women between twenty and twenty-five who graduated from college
(C) The percentage of women who, after attending college, entered highly paid professions
(D) The percentage of men between twenty and twenty-one who were enrolled in college
(E) The percentage of men who graduated from high school

i got confused between options !!i would be interested in the approach to avoiid confusion betwee options

A) -> This data is already given

D) -> This should be useful

Will go with D) since argument is concerned with increase in proportion of women among students.

The proportion of women among students enrolled in higher education programs has increased.

We are talking abt enrollment so B C and E are out.

In order to understand proportion of women among students we also must know proportion of men among students

thus D
