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
