Harry: Airlines have made it possible

Post Thu Dec 07, 2017 5:54 am
Harry: Airlines have made it possible for anyone to travel around the world in much less time than was formerly possible.

Judith: That is not true. Many flights are too expensive for all but the rich.

Judith’s response shows that she interprets Harry’s statement to imply that

A) the majority of people are rich
(B) everyone has an equal right to experience world travel
(C) world travel is only possible via routes serviced by airlines
(D) most forms of world travel are not affordable for most people
(E) anyone can afford to travel long distances by air

I thought it was option D, why isn't it the best option?

We're trying to determine what Judith believes Harry's statement implies. (This could have been worded a little more clearly.) Harry's statement doesn't imply that most people can't afford to fly - Harry doesn't consider costs at all, suggesting that he thinks cost is a non-issue.
