Spring fashions sold briskly during an unusually warm February, March, and early April. But sales have since slowed amid cool temperatures, especially in the Midwest and Northeast. "While the outlook for May is not good, it should be pointed out that May historically represents less than one-third of second-quarter revenue," writes Jane Seally in a report for Retail Research, an independent research group that tracks the retail industry. "Warmer temperatures appear to be finally on their way, suggesting that June and July might provide some relief," writes Ms. Seally.
ー-----------------------------------



What does Ms. Seally say about retail sales for May?
(A) They were better than predicted.
(B) They are usually lower than for April
(C) They are expected to be above average for most chain stores.
(D) They account for less than a third of revenue for the quarter


私はDだと考えているのですが、文章の中に直接的に書かれているので、ひっかけの選択肢なのかなと思ってしまっています。わかる方、よろしくお願いします。
