. A hypothetical example. In city A, with a population of 100,000 people, the weekly number of new cases of covid19 was 100 while in city B, with a population 1,000,000, the reported weekly number of new cases was 1000. The news reported that city B experiences a major epidemic while conditions in city A are under control. What is the problem (if there is a problem) with this statement.

a. There is no problem because city B indeed has more cases

b. This is a fallacy, because the reporters did not adjust for population size

c. This is a fallacy, because the reporters should have calculated the prevalence of the disease

d. This is a fallacy, because the reporters should have calculated the fatality rate of the disease

e. None of the above

This is a Fallacy,because the reporters did not adjust for the Population size for the two given cities i.e. city A and city B.

[OR]

b.This a fallancy, because the reporters did not adjust for the population size.

To be more precise the percentage of people affected in the city A = 100/100,000=0.001% and city B = 1000/1,000,000=0.001%

thus the percentage of the affected population is equal in both cities.
