Recent increases in total consumption, especially during the hot summer months, have sometimes been accompanied by a decrease in the cost per unit and at other times by an increase.
Which of the following positions is best supported by the information presented above?
(A) It must be the case that the cost of electricity to consumers is what determines the total consumption.
(B) Even though a correlation exists between the total consumption of electricity and its cost to consumers, no causal relation exists.
(C) Further investigation into the way these statistics were gathered is certainly called for.
(D) The cost of electricity depends upon something other than the total consumption of electricity.
(E) The cost-per-unit of electricity to consumers is dependent on the total electricity consumption.

While many area residents remain skeptical, no worker wearing one of these masks has yet been attacked by a tiger.
Which of the statements below, if true, would best support the argument of those who advocate the use of the mask?
(A) Many workers in the nature reserve who do not wear the masks have been attacked recently by tigers.
