Wearing either a lap seat belt or a shoulder-and-Iap seat belt protects passengers from the major types of injuries incurred in head-on automobile collisions. In such collisions, however, passengers wearing lap seat belts alone frequently suffer internal injuries caused by the seat belt itself. Such injuries do not occur when shoulder-and-Iap seat belts are worn.

Which of the following conclusions about passengers involved in head-on automobile collisions is best supported by the statements above?

(A) No type of seat belt provides passengers with adequate protection from injury.
(B) The injuries that passengers most frequently incur are internal injuries.
(C) Head-on automobile collisions cause more injuries to passengers than any other kind of automobile accident does.
(D) It is safer for passengers to wear a shoulder-and-lap seat belt than to wear a lap seat belt alone.
(E) It is safer for passengers to wear no seat belt than to wear a lap seat belt alone.

Let’s consider each option one by one.
A. Incorrect - The passage implies that shoulder and lap belts are better than lap belts when it comes to ensuring safety of passengers. It does not mention anywhere that shoulder and lap belts are also useless. So this statement is incorrect.
B. Incorrect - Nowhere in this question do we talk about different types of injuries that might occur. So this too is incorrect.
C. Incorrect - Again, nowhere do we talk about different types of automobile accidents. Thus, incorrect.
D. Correct - Since we are talking about the obvious flaws of lap seat belts which shoulder and lap belts do not have, we might infer this. Hence, correct.
E. Incorrect - Even though lap belts cause internal injuries, it might be the case that wearing no belts is way more harmful. The passage clearly does not provide this inference. So incorrect.
