Question Stats:

84% (01:01) correct 16% (01:51) wrong based on 25 sessions
Despite a dramatic increase in the number of people riding bicycles for recreation in Parkville, a recent report by the Parkville Department of Transportation shows that the number of accidents involving bicycles has decreased for the third consecutive year.

Which of the following, if true during the last three years, best reconciles the apparent discrepancy in the facts?

A) The Parkville Department of Recreation confiscated abandoned bicycles and sold them at auction to any interested Parkville residents.

B) Increased automobile and bus traffic in Parkville had been the leading cause of the most recent increase in automobile accidents.

C) Because of the local increase in the number of people bicycling for recreation, many out-of-town bicyclists ride in the Parkville area.

D) The Parkville Police Department enforced traffic rules for bicycle riders much more vigorously and began requiring recreational riders to pass a bicycle safety course.

E) The Parkville Department of Transportation canceled a program that required all bicycles to be inspected and registered each year.

Explanation

The correct answer is Choice D. Enforcing traffic rules and educating bicyclists about safety will obviously tend to reduce the number of bicycle accidents. Actions mentioned in the other answer choices will not have this effect. Choices A and C would explain the increase in the number of bicyclists in Parkville but not the decrease in bicycle accidents. The number of automobile accidents (Choice B) is not correlated with the number of bicycle accidents. Finally, cancellation of a bicycle inspection program (Choice E), if anything, would tend to increase the number of bicycle accidents.

The question is asking what could be the possible reason behind the no. of bicycle riders increasing but the number of accidents involving bicycle riders is decreasing
