should be implemented in developing countries in order to speed economic development. Which of the

people were killed in train disasters. A statistician concluded that it was more dangerous to travel by
plane, train, and automobile, in that order.
Which of the following refuses the statistician’s conclusions?
(A) There is no common denominator by which to compare the number of deaths resulting from each
mode of travel.

calculated in relation to the previous year’s. In 1976, imports of private vehicles were 10 percent higher
than in 1975, while imports of vehicles including commercial vans was 15 percent higher than in 1975.
That 15 percent increase was one and half times the increase recorded in 1975.
