A greater number of newspapers are sold in Town S than in Town T. Therefore, the citizens of Town S are better informed about major world events than are the citizens of Town T.
Claim, S has more newspaper, thus more informed about world events.
The assumption is more total newspaper means more avg newspaper per person per day, thus more informed.
Each of the following, if true, weakens the conclusion above EXCEPT:
(A) Town S has a larger population than Town T.
Meaning newspaper per person may not be more. Weaken.
(B) Most citizens of Town T work in Town S and buy their newspapers there.
Again newspaper per person in T may not be less because they buy their newspaper at work and can still be informed. Weaken.
(C) The average citizen of Town S spends less time reading newspapers than does the average citizen of Town T.
If S spend less time reading newspapers, they may have a lot of newspaper but they simply lay around and the citizens in S still may be less informed. Weaken.
(D) A weekly newspaper restricted to the coverage of local events is published in Town S.
The greater number may be due to this local paper and thus the S citizens may not be more informed in world events. Weaken.
(E) The average newsstand price of newspapers sold in Town S is lower than the average price of newspapers sold in Town T.
Yes it's cheaper so everybody buys lots newspaper and become very informed. Not weakening.
Keep on asking, and it will be given you;
keep on seeking, and you will find;
keep on knocking, and it will be opened to you.
