Hello @SorooshKosha,

There must be a mistake in the workbook, because the correct answer is E.

The answer sets up a comparison between severity of an incident vs. likelihood of an incident.

In a small car, an incident would be more severe, but less likely.
In a large car, an incident would be less severe, but more likely.

The author claims that it is better to drive a small car. In other words, the author will accept a reduced chance of an incident, at the expense of greater severity.

E matches this reasoning.
Daily vigorous exercise: a wasting illness would be more severe, but less likely.
No daily vigorous exercise: a wasting illness would be less severe, but more likely.

Daily vigorous exercise is preferred, which follows the same reasoning pattern as the stimulus.
