Section 2 - Question 17
If the statements above are true, each of the following could be true EXCEPT:
I don't understand why the answer is B.
the stimulus says 50 complete sterilizations of a set of nylon instruments required 3.4 times the amount of energy used to manufacture that set of instruments...
Answer B says: More energy was required for each complete sterilization of the nylon instruments than was required to manufacture the nylon instruments"
Than B MUST BE TRUE
What the fuck am I missing

Each complete sterilization has to be less than the overall amount of energy used for manufacturing. The two quantities being compared in this answer choice are that of a single complete sterilization vs. the overall amount of energy used to manufacture nylons. If it takes 3.4 times the amount of energy for a complete sterilization then given the ratio in the stimulus (50/3.4), the amount of energy expended for manufacturing overall must be greater than one instance of a complete sterilization.
