During the nineteenth century, Britain's urban population increased as its rural population diminished. A historian theorizes that, rather than industrialization's being the cause, this change resulted from a series of migrations to urban areas, each occasioned by a depression in the agrarian economy. To test this hypothesis, the historian will compare economic data with population census data.

The historian's hypothesis would be most strongly supported if which of the following were found to be true?

(A) The periods of greatest growth in the industrial economy were associated with a relatively rapid decline in the rural population.
(B) The periods of greatest weakness in the agrarian economy were associated with relatively slow growth in the population as a whole.
(C) Periods when the agrarian economy was compar- atively strong and the industrial economy com- paratively weak were associated with a particlarly rapid decline in the rural population.
(D) Periods when the agrarian and industrial economies were both strong were associated with particularly rapid growth in the urban population.
(E) The periods of greatest strength in the agrarian economy were associated with relatively slow growth in the urban population.

To hit the the right OA we do need a correlation between the migration of population in urban areas from rural areas and NOT a correlation between rural/urban economies.

All the answer choices but E show this sort of process if you read very carefully.

Ask if something is still unclear to you

I got E. There is no OA attached to this question. Can you please confirm my answer, is it correct?
