Which of these statements is true, given the information in this passage?

A Average winter temperatures in the Northeast, Midwest, and most of central and eastern Canada are generally below 30 degrees Fahrenheit.
Explaination
Since the Mediterranean data is used as a contrast (above 30 degrees), it can be assumed that the northern area temperatures would be lower. While you would assume Mediterranean climates probably get less snow (because of higher temperatures) than northern areas, the passage says nothing about the absence of snow there. The passage does not make statements that support the other choices.
B It does not snow in Mediterranean climates.
C There is always snow under trees in Canada.
D Average winter temperatures in the Northeast, Midwest, and most of central and eastern Canada are generally above 30 degrees Fahrenheit.
