### HideShow timer Statistics

Walking a mile at a slow pace, from 1.8 to 2.5
mph, burns about 100 calories. Walking a mile
at a brisk pace, from 3 to 4 mph, also burns
about 100 calories, though in a shorter
amount of time. Jogging a mile, from 4.5 to 6
mph, burns about the same 100 calories. The
difference in covering a mile at faster speeds
is not in the number of calories burned, but in
the greater degree of cardio-vascular benefit.

Which of the following conclusions is best
supported by the statements above?

A)Jogging builds more muscle tone than
does walking at a slow pace.
B)Speed is directly proportional to the
number of calories burned.
C)Walking at a brisk pace for a shorter
amount of time burns more calories than
does walking at a slow pace for a longer
amount of time.
D)There are benefits to walking at a slow
pace other than burning calories.
E)Jogging a mile offers greater cardiovascular
benefit than does walking a mile
briskly or at a slow pace.

A)Jogging builds more muscle tone than does walking at a slow pace.
INCORRECT... I'm not sure what muscle tone is.My guess is that it is somehow related to cardiovascular benefit.Hence,this option contradicts what the argument says.

B)Speed is directly proportional to the number of calories burned.
INCORRECT... Speed has nothing to do with number of calories burned.The argument states that under the same distance,regardless of speed taken along the route,the number of calories burned is the same.

C)Walking at a brisk pace for a shorter amount of time burns more calories than does walking at a slow pace for a longer amount of time.
INCORRECT... The condition in this question can't be inferred from the argument.

D)There are benefits to walking at a slow pace other than burning calories.
INCORRECT... We know nothing about other benefits.

E)Jogging a mile offers greater cardiovascular benefit than does walking a mile briskly or at a slow pace.
CORRECT... This option is along the line with the last sentence in the argument.
