Chetan i Disagree. Public transport can be anything ranging from railways to trams. I think the choice simply broadens the scope of the question which is in my view incorrect. Also public transport would be used to travel within their own city usually while the question stimulus mentions that this bus operates from one city to another city. I think this is not correct.


Yes, public transport could be train-service, bus-service or any other intercity service, implying that if a train service (or any other intercity service) is introduced from Creepia, it would attract passengers from Creepia. The same holds true even for bus-service. Thus the OE Chetan has posted seems logical to me.

Nonetheless to clear the bit of ambiguity, I would suggest to slightly modify option D as below:
D. The people of Creepia presently use private vehicles to travel to other cities due to limited means of public transport.

Yeah sayantan thanks, I too did mention in a reply to one of the members that may be by addition of words that you have mentioned in B and D, the OA becomes more prominent ....
Although I do believe in the same breath, that if it is not mentioned that shortage is within city or while traveling to other cities, it should mean overall in both within and outside

I initially thought B was the best pick but on a second thought, I saw why D was the right choice. B tells us that there are VERY limited bus services...there could be several reasons why this is the case: 1) the routes from Creepia could not be a linking route to other parts of the Metropolis 2) the road network could be in a dismal state and hence, the VERY little service that remained, operate on the risk of ruining their cars and hence, the aim of making profit would be lost in repairs and so many other reasons.
In option D, the raised questions were satisfied by the singular act that they use their private cars as substitute for no bus services. This cancels all doubts of poor road network from Creepia to other towns, or bad road or safety problems of the roads etc. it leaves us with the option that probably there are more consumers and less commodity. So this guarantees income if there is a producer who has the commodity to give to the hungry consumers who are making use of a make-shift.
Hope I make sense....opppssss

Hello Guys, here's my take to the explaination to this question. Please let me know if there are any holes in my understanding.

• Amria and Banur are 50 miles away
• Travel one has non-stop service in morning from A to B
• Almost every day the bus remains filled till 90% ( remember almost every day)
○ The operator of Travel One intends to fill up the remaining 10% seats by making a halt enroute at Town Creepia ( conclusion) -> since this is the plan we have to strengthen
This is our conclusion that the operator intends to fill up the 10% seats by making halt at Creepia
• The Creepia is not too much far away from both towns
• People will not leave the bus in significants amounts at Creepia, bursting the numbers down further below 90%
A) This option does not support the argument. Even if there are reasons or no reasons we don't get a clear intention that the operator will meet the plan
B) This can be true. We can hold it for a while
a. But if bus services are there, though limited, the chances are there that the bus will not be able to fill 10% of the seats
C) This will weaken the argument. If it halts at Creepia, the other passengers would not choose this bus
D) This tells us that people of Creepia use private transport and hence they can use public transport
a. Remember there is a difference between B and D
i. B says that the bus services are limited
ii. Here it is limited + additional people using private transport.
iii. Tell now, what Is better? In D we know that there are people who are using private transport
iv. In B if the contenders were X, In D the contenders will be X+Y and hence it is better than option B
E) The objective of the operator is to fill 10% of the seats, the revenue is out of context here
