Yoko is writing an argument piece on the high cost of running and maintaining her town’s prison. She’s found the following evidence: About 470,000 people work as correctional officers in the United States. Russia has the second-highest incarceration rate in the world. The United States houses about 25 percent of the world’s prisoners. American correctional officers are paid on average $40,000 per year. Which piece of evidence is most relevant to Yoko’s argument? A. statement 1 B. statement 2 C. statement 3 D. statement 4
I would say the correct answer should be D. Statement 4, because it involves money.
