Denationalization and Stock Market Crash Sun May 20, 2012 11:32 am
Elapsed Time: 00:00
• Lap #[LAPCOUNT] ([LAPTIME])
In the aftermath of a worldwide stock-market crash, Country T claimed that the severity of
the stock-market crash it experienced resulted from the accelerated process of
denationalization many of its industries underwent shortly before the crash.
Which of the following, if it could be carried out, would be most useful in an evaluation of
Country T's assessment of the causes of the severity of its stock-market crash?
A. calculating the average loss experienced by individual traders in Country T during the
crash
B. using economic theory to predict the most likely date of the next crash in Country T
C. comparing the total number of shares sold during the worst days of the crash in Country T
to the total number of shares sold in Country T just prior to the crash
D. comparing the severity of the crash in Country T to the severity of the crash in countries
otherwise economically similar to Country T that have not experienced recent
denationalization
E. comparing the long-term effects of the crash on the purchasing power of the currency of
Country T to the immediate, more severe short-term effects of the crash on the purchasing
power of the currency of Country T

OA after some discussion...

1. There was a worldwide stock-market crash.
2. Country T claims the severity of the crash(= this worldwide crash) is due to accelerated process of denationalization.

Between C and D
C talks about country T only. But this crash is worldwide. So how did country T concluded?
D is giving a comparison between T and other countries
