A) So they sell more papers… does it mean they are more informed… I don’t think so… it is due to higher population that they sell more! (Weakens)

B) Citizens of town T also read papers buying them in town S, therefore those who buy the papers in town S are not only its citizens (Weakens)

C) Spending less time does not mean that they are less/more informed than people in town T… in town S they might read faster and skip local news… or anything else, so they do it at the expense of time… (Weakens)

D) Therefore, they don’t read about the ‘world news’ which is what argument is about (Weakens)

E) Ok, so the price is lower in town S… but it does not mean that due to this fact citizens of town T do not buy the newspaper because of the higher price there…

I think it is E…

All 5 choices are bad.

A,B and E raises possible reasons why sale of newspaper is higher in Town S.
D suggests that people of Town S are only informed about local news.
C appears to suggest that spending less time to read newspaper means that they're less informed.

But out of the 5, C has the least evil. Spending less time to read doesn't really mean they're not informed about major world events.

I hate to choose because all 5 are poor choices, but in an actual test, I'll click C and move on.
