### HideShow timer Statistics

Which of the following most logically completes the argument below?
According to promotional material published by the city of Springfield, more tourists stay in hotels in Springfield than stay in the neighboring city of Harristown. A brochure from the largest hotel in Harristown claims that more tourists stay in that hotel than stay in the Royal Arms Hotel in Springfield. If both of these sources are accurate, however, the “Report on Tourism” for the region must be in error in stating that ______.
A. the average length of stay is longer at the largest hotel in Harristown than it is at the Royal Arms Hotel
B. there is only one hotel in Harristown that is larger than the Royal Arms Hotel
C. more tourists stay in hotels in Harristown than stay in the Royal Arms Hotel
D. the Royal Arms Hotel is the largest hotel in Springfield
E. the Royal Arms Hotel is the only hotel in Springfield

E ...

n(people in Springfield hotels ) > n(people in Harristown hotels )
n(largest hotel in Harristown) > n(Royal Arms Hotel in Springfield)

A. the average length of stay is longer at the largest hotel in Harristown than it is at the Royal Arms Hotel

This is not known. Large #s in a hotel doesnt necessarily mean greater average of stay

B. there is only one hotel in Harristown that is larger than the Royal Arms Hotel

Really?

C. more tourists stay in hotels in Harristown than stay in the Royal Arms Hotel

Yes that is given. So no issues here

D. the Royal Arms Hotel is the largest hotel in Springfield
Need not be true

E. the Royal Arms Hotel is the only hotel in Springfield
This is an error. Hence the answer

clear E for me.
If there is only one hotel in S-field and more tourists stay in H hotel in H-town than the number that stay in s-field. thus more tourists stay in hotels in H-town than in s-field. This is in direct contradiction to the premise. Thus incorrect.

'E' for me.

If both of the statements are accurate, then there should be hotels in Springfields other than Royal Arms.
