Answer G
All the statements are incorrect
1- Just because staffing levels are lower at the weekend and death rates are higher doesn't that it is the cause it is simply correlation.
2- The passage states that patients would die either way at home or at the hospital. Therefore increasing provisions at the weekend for both services would make no difference.
3- This assumes that correlation is the same as causation.Low staffing levels don't necessarily cause patient death.
