### HideShow timer Statistics

With all the recent news of steroid abuse in baseball, Congress has worried that the young fans of baseball will be tempted to try steroids, so they have argued that stiffer drug testing and stiffer penalties need to be in place in order to discourage steroid use at the professional level. For their part, Major League Baseball has disagreed to the required stiffer penalties and testing, citing the interference of Congress as a negative impact on younger fans.

Which of the following, if true, would best contribute to a partial explanation of Major League Baseball`s citing fans as a reason against testing above?

(A) The number of expansion teams in the next five years is the highest it has been for any five year period over the past fifty years.
(B) Congress has not shown any particularly strong desire to help Major League Baseball be successful.
(C) Major League Baseball has had little success getting Congress to back off using any other reasons.
(D) Some baseball players are on medications which interact dangerously with steroids.
(E) Major League Baseball has recently started youth outreach programs designed to increase positive interaction between young fans and players.

It should be E - This is how I dissected the questions. Baseball league states fans will feel negative, why? because fans love players and do/follow them, so there is a chance that fans will find it odd for congress to intervene.
