I need help with this...
Jane made this statement: 'Smoking is the reason the most people die in a certain country' What is wrong with this statement?
NOTE: I couldn't paste the graph so I will just give you the data below.

Cause - Number of deaths (thousands)
AIDS - 30
Alcohol - 105
Motor Vehicle - 46
Fires - 4
Homicide - 25
Illicit Drugs - 9
Suicide - 31
Smoking - 418

I don't understand what is wrong with the statement. Does it not make sense? Does it not address the issue? I do not know. PLEASE CLEAR UP THE CONFUSION IN MY HEAD!!! I need really quick, reliable help please!!!
