HideShow timer Statistics

The use of 24-hour closed-circuit television (CCTV) has sometimes enabled British police to catch criminals they would not otherwise catch, but this technology is not without controversy. In 2007, a British watchdog organization concluded that a majority of 24-hour CCTV cameras are operating in violation of privacy laws. Evidence illegally obtained cannot be used in court.

The information above, assuming all of it is true, supports which of the following conclusions?

A. At least some British police catches based on CCTV will be acquitted.
B. A majority of CCTV cameras are not operated by the British government.
C. Some United Kingdom citizens are concerned that even legal CCTV cameras are an invasion of their privacy.
D. Most of what is recorded on 24-hour CCTV in the United Kingdom would not hold up in court.
E. CCTV is not an effective deterrent to crime.

A. At least some British police catches based on CCTV will be acquitted.
Wrong - This is tempting, but nothing in the conclusion speaks about acquittal rates - it's a new element that hasn't been introduced in the question statement so we can ignore this option.

B. A majority of CCTV cameras are not operated by the British government.
Wrong - Nothing appears about who operates the CCTV cameras.

C. Some United Kingdom citizens are concerned that even legal CCTV cameras are an invasion of their privacy.
Wrong - A british watchdog organization said so, not the citizens.


D. Most of what is recorded on 24-hour CCTV in the United Kingdom would not hold up in court.
Correct - Most of = majority of evidence (as stated in the question)

E. CCTV is not an effective deterrent to crime
Wrong - The statement opens with saying that CCTV has been an effective deterrent to crime.

B. A majority of CCTV cameras are not operated by the British government. -No information
C. Some United Kingdom citizens are concerned that even legal CCTV cameras are an invasion of their privacy. -No informtaion
D. Most of what is recorded on 24-hour CCTV in the United Kingdom would not hold up in court. -Correct
E. CCTV is not an effective deterrent to crime. -It is effective but it's recordings can't be produced as an evidence
