Due to the increase in traffic accidents caused by deer in the state, the governor last year reintroduced a longer deer hunting season to encourage recreational hunting of the animals. The governor expected the longer hunting season to decrease the number of deer and therefore decrease the number of accidents. However, this year the number of accidents caused by deer has increased substantially since the reintroduction of the longer deer hunting season.

Which of the following, if true, would best explain the increase in traffic accidents caused by deer?

(A) Many recreational hunters hunt only once or twice per hunting season, regardless of the length of the season.

(B) The deer in the state have become accustomed to living in close proximity to humans and are often easy prey for hunters as a result.

(C) Most automobile accidents involving deer result from cars swerving to avoid deer, and leave the deer in question unharmed.

(D) The number of drivers in the state has been gradually increasing over the past several years.

(E) A heavily used new highway recently built directly through the state’s largest forest, which is the primary habitat of the state's deer population.
