Answer A. An MLB star can make more than 4 million bucks
Well, although the salaries plotted on the graph never reach $4,000,000, keep
in mind that the graph is showing AVERAGE salaries.
So this is definitely supported by Figure 1.
Just to be sure, let's check the other statements. Answer B says the exact opposite of A.
so it's not supported. Statement C: an MLB player makes less today than 30 years ago.
Just by looking at the graph, we can see that the average salary has significantly increased,
so this isn't supported either. Answer D says that 1995 was the best year for salaries.
But again, the average salaries have SIGNIFICANTLY increased overtime, so
1995 isn't the best year. The answer is A.
