Passage Reading and English Comprehension

992. There are several forms of public transport in the UK. Statistics suggest that forms of public transport are becoming increasingly popular, due to relatively cheap cost when compared to private transport. In addition to this, public transport is often quicker and more reliable, especially when travelling in busy cities, such as London.

One reason why public transport is increasingly popular in London is the ease in which people can travel around the city centre. Services such as the Underground provide the opportunity to beat traffic congestion and negate the need for often costly parking. In addition, the regularity of such services is popular. However, public transport is often less popular in less densly populated areas. A possible reason for this is that services tend to be less regular, making public transport a less practical option.

Which of the following reasons does the writer give for the popularity of public transport in cities?

(a) Public transport can be cheaper and more practical in busy cities
(b) Public transport is more entertaining than private transport
(c) Public transport is often safer than parking in busy cities
(d) Public transport offers less regular services and can be unpractical
