Time 0 0 : 0 0 : 0 0

In Gotham City, attendance at the nightclubs is just large enough for the club owners to make modest profits. The size of the city's population is stable and is not expected to increase much. Yet there are investors ready to double the number of clubs in the city within five years, and they are predicting solid profits both for themselves and for the established nightclub owners.

Which of the following, if true about Gotham City, most helps to provide a justification for the investors' prediction?

(A)

Over the next ten years, people in their early 20s, the prime club-going age, will be a rapidly growing proportion of the city's population.

(B)

As distinct from the existing nightclubs, most of the nightclubs being planned would be located in downtown areas, in hopes of stimulating an economic revitalization of those areas.

(C)

Opening of bars and lounges has been increasing modestly each year for the past ten years.

(D)

The capacity per nightclub is lower among existing nightclubs than it is among nightclubs still in the planning stages.

(E)

The sale of premium alcoholic beverages in nightclubs accounts for a steadily growing share of most nightclubs' profits.
