Benford`s Law states that most phenomena in nature begin with `1`s and `2's. The law has been shown to apply very accurately to the amount of money listed on people`s income statements. Investigators have used this fact when investigating financial fraud, and can often determine when people have fabricated numbers, since the perpetrators will choose varying amounts so that the first number in each of those amounts is distributed evenly from `1` to `9`. Proponents of Benford`s Law, therefore, argue that as the technique of applying Benford`s law becomes even more refined, an expert`s ability to determine whether a plaintiff has engaged in financial fraud will become as accurate in determining guilt as a fingerprint is today.

Which of the following, if true, casts the most doubt on the conclusion drawn by proponents of Benford`s Law?
  • AIn one financial fraud case, the numbers in which the amount was stated was not distributed evenly across `1`s and `9`s. 分析该选项
  • BThe use of fingerprinting is highly sophisticated since it has had over a century to evolve as a technology. 分析该选项
  • CBenford`s Law, after being used in several notable cases, has become highly publicized and intimately known to many likely to commit such crimes. 分析该选项
  • DBenford`s Law is not as accurate for numbers with fewer than six digits, though many fabricated numbers are for sums less than 100,000. 分析该选项
  • EIn the last year, several instances of financial fraud were discovered using other means besides Benford`s Law. 分析该选项
正确答案: C
