8) B

A – Wrong
There is not data given to us about offenders who only served half of their sentence.

B – Correct
From the second table, we can see that 22% of offenders who served non-custodial sentences have reoffended whilst the figure for short-custodial sentences is 55%.

C – Wrong
 Even though 70% of the young offenders reoffend, that does not mean that they are not punished again. Hence, this statement does not fully support the evidence given.

D – Wrong
“Inevitable” is too strong of a word. It is not certain that an offender released from serving a sentence will reoffend in the future.

E – Wrong
We cannot conclude this from the text given to us.
