Question Stats:

63% (01:43) correct 36% (01:20) wrong based on 38 sessions
Despite the fact that the health-inspection procedures for catering establishments are more stringent than those for ordinary restaurants, more of the cases of food poisoning reported to the city health department were brought on by banquets served by catering services than were brought on by restaurant meals.

Which of the following, if true, helps explain the apparent paradox in the statement above?

A) A significantly larger number of people eat in restaurants than attend catered banquets in any given time period.
B) Catering establishments know how many people they expect to serve, and therefore are less likely than restaurants to have, and serve, leftover food, a major source of food poisoning.
C) Many restaurants provide catering services for banquets in addition to serving individual meals.
D) The number of reported food-poisoning cases at catered banquets is unrelated to whether the meal is served on the caterer’s or the client’s premises.
E) People are unlikely to make a connection between a meal they have eaten and a subsequent illness unless the illness strikes a group who are in communication with one another.

Explanation

The question calls for an explanation of why more cases of reported food poisoning might be attributed to catering services than to restaurants. Choices A and B both provide reasons why restaurants should account for more cases, so they are incorrect. Choice C would suggest that there would be negligible differences between the likelihood of food poisoning at restaurants and at catered events, so it also sheds no light on the paradox and is therefore incorrect. Since the argument does not pertain to the location of catered banquets, Choice D is incorrect. That leaves Choice E. People who attend banquets are more likely than restaurant patrons to be part of a group that communicates with one another, so Choice E would help explain the higher number of reported food poisonings and is the correct answer

The key word here is the report of the cases.

Only if the consumers communicate each other. As such, there will be more report by them.

Ask if something is still unclear to you.

The authorities put more controls on catering food. However, more cases than before are reported by people who eat this meals.

Why this paradox ?? the controls are more stringent and the cases are on the rise.

Of course, if one person is intoxicated by catering food maybe yes or maybe not has an association between food and poisoning.

Notwithstanding, if we do have a group of people poisoning by the same catering, the same food the case reports getting higher.

Hope now is more clear to you.

Regards
