Okay, that explanation was helpful, so thank you! To clarify, the decision for answer choice C to say, "the total number of male game ducks" is what made it incorrect since it assumes we know the entire amount, correct?

Hi Eric,

That's exactly correct.

We don't know anything about the total number of ducks in either lake, so we cannot make any inferences regarding how many total ducks (overall, male, or female) one lake has compared to the other.

All we are given in the stimulus is the ratios of male ducks to female ducks in each lake.
