I am getting it as B.

Tourists in Number of hotels in S > Toursts in Number of hotels in H

But, one hotel in H accommodates more than a hotel in S.

If both are true, then the S must have more number of hotels. Thus, the wrong report has to say against this and B does it.

If both of these sources are accurate, however, the county’s “Report on Tourism” must be in error in indicating that _______.

A. more tourists stay in hotel accommodations in Harristown than stay in the Royal Arms Hotel
B. the Royal Arms Hotel is the only hotel in Springfield
C. there are several hotels in Harristown that are larger than the Royal Arms Hotel
D. some of the tourists who have stayed in hotels in Harristown have also stayed in the Royal Arms Hotel
E. some hotels in Harristown have fewer tourist guests each year than the Royal Arms Hotel has

I also go for B

1st evidence : more tourists stay in hotels in Springfield than stay in the neighboring city of Harristown

2nd evidence : more tourists stay in the largest hotel in Harristown than stay in the Royal Arms Hotel in Springfield

B -> the Royal Arms Hotel is the only hotel in Springfield

It is impossible because we know that the total number of tourists in Springfield has to be superior than in Harristown.

Agree with B.

If S has more tourists staying in it than in H , then there should be at least another hotel in S ,else with just one hotel it would have less tourists staying here than at a hotel in S itself, let alone S.
