Find the statement that must be true according to the given information.


When they heard news of the hurricane, Maya and Julian decided to change their vacation plans. Instead of traveling to the island beach resort, they booked a room at a fancy new spa in the mountains. Their plans were a bit more expensive, but they'd heard wonderful things about the spa and they were relieved to find availability on such short notice.

[A]. Maya and Julian take beach vacations every year.
[B]. The spa is overpriced.
[C]. It is usually necessary to book at least six months in advance at the spa.
[D]. Maya and Julian decided to change their vacation plans because of the hurricane.

Answer: Option D


The first sentence makes this statement true. There is no support for choice a. The passage tells us that the spa vacation is more expensive than the island beach resort vacation, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the spa is overpriced; therefore, choice b cannot be supported. And even though the paragraph says that the couple was relieved to find a room on short notice, there is no information to support choice c, which says that it is usually necessary to book at the spa at least six months in advance.
