### HideShow timer Statistics

The Supreme Court is no longer able to keep pace with the tremendous number of cases it
agrees to decide. The Court schedules and hears 160 hours of oral argument each year, and
108 hours of next year’s term will be taken up by cases left over from this year. Certainly the
Court cannot be asked to increase its already burdensome hours. The most reasonable
long-range solution to this problem is to allow the Court to decide many cases without hearing
oral argument; in this way the Court might eventually increase dramatically the number of
cases it decides each year.
Which of the following, if true, could best be used to argue against the feasibility of the solution
suggested?
A. The time the Court spends hearing oral argument is only a small part of the total time it
spends deciding a case.
B. The Court cannot legitimately avoid hearing oral argument in any case left over from last
year.
C. Most authorities agree that 160 hours of oral argument is the maximum number that the
Court can handle per year.
D. Even now the Court decides a small number of cases without hearing oral argument.
E. In many cases, the delay of a hearing for a full year can be extremely expensive to the
parties involved.
