Rita claims that the results are misleading - she even says "no matter how you look at them". Hiro agrees that the results aren't perfectly accurate, but disagrees that that inherently makes them misleading. Hiro seems to be viewing the results as if they're from a clock that's a few minutes fast - the clock is not right, but if you know how wrong it is, you can calculate the actual time pretty readily. Hiro seems to think the results are wrong in that way - not accurate, but inaccurate by an amount that can reasonably be estimated, so that the actual numbers can be inferred. Rita simply can't agree with that if she thinks they're misleading no matter how you look at them.
This is why answer choice (A) is correct. Rita agrees with the answer, and Hiro doesn't think the results are necessarily misleading.
Hiro makes no comment about whether the numbers are serious underestimates (and even agrees they are underestimates!), so Hiro's opinion on answer choice (D) is unknown.
