For 2, why do you think that option E weakens the conclusion?

first one is a bit tough for me, I come to B and D though

D - since per capita lending is more in town of Reading which means that per person leading is higher than town of Hicks. This in turn means residents of Reading are more well read.

I agreewith you. But how B and E weaken the conclusion? They seem to be good contenders too.

Sorry, I have the same doubts. How does option E weaken the conclusion?

B. There is reciprocal book agreement between these 2 libraries. Hicks is open 3 days and Reading is open every day. So I assumed that there may be many people from Hicks town going to Reading library to borrow the book. This way it weakens the argument.

E. Reading library has comfortable chairs and sofas so again here i assumed that better amenities at Reading might be attracting people from Hicks town. This way it weakens the argument.

Thanks. I understand. But the question itself is weird. If anybody has better ideas about (E)- you are VERY welcome :)

There's your answer :)
As you can see, I deliberately sparked a discussion about 10th because the explanation is not good.

In 10 we must find either what actually strenghtening the given conclusion or what is less relevant to conclusion.
E is not relevent, sofas and chairs. wtf? who cares!
D - strenghts the conclusion. But it is a bit weird because both cities may be in different states, even neighboring cities.
