C looks good. If the avg time stay is same then more tourists are possible. I was hoping for a choice that said the avg hotel didnt go up to make up for the tax rate cut but then it wasnt there. So C looks the closest
Tourists have long complained that hotel accommodations in Midville are too expensive.
Starting last year, the city council, hoping to attract more tourists, lowered the hotel tax
rate to 5 percent of room charges. By the end of last year, Midville had taken in no less
money from hotel taxes than it did the year before, so an examination of the hotel records
will show that more tourists stayed in city hotels last year than the year before.
Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?
A. The tourists who stayed in Midville hotels last year were aware that the hotel tax
rate had been lowered.
B. The average price of hotel accommodations in Midville was not significantly
higher than in hotels in other cities either last year or the year before.
C. The average length of a touristís stay in Midville hotels was not longer last year
than it had been the year before.
D. There were significantly more efforts to publicize Midville as a tourist destination
last year than there had been the year before.
E. On average, tourists in Midville did not spend significantly more on meals last
year than they did on hotels accommodations.
