XAT 2020 Question 15

Question 15

Read the following paragraph and answer the question that follows:
In Australia, jellyfish are most common between November and May. In Hawaii, jellyfish often show up on south-facing beaches eight days after a full moon. In the Mediterranean, blooms usually appear in the summer. Unfortunately for travellers, there is no worldwide database for recent jellyfish sightings, and tourism officials are sometimes reluctant to publicize jellyfish swarms out of fear that such news will scare off visitors.
Which of the following can be BEST concluded from the above paragraph?

Solution

While some of the other options can be assumed indirectly from the passage, "In Hawaii, jellyfish often show up on south-facing beaches eight days after a full moon" clearly indicate that celestial bodies (moon) affect jellyfish sighting.

Hence we can conclude only option A from the passage.
