Q-10) The incidence rate of a disease is five times greater in women than in men, but the prevalence rates show no sex difference. The best explanation is that:
The crude all-cause mortality rate is greater in women
The case-fatality from this disease is greater in women
The case-fatality from this disease is lower in women
The duration of this disease is shorter in men
Risk factors for the disease are more common in women
