A minor league baseball franchise experienced a drop in attendance this week after they suffered three losses by margins of ten runs or more last week. Many spectators of those games wrote letters to the editors of the local sporting news, complaining of the poor play of the team in those three losses. Nevertheless, the front office of this baseball franchise maintains that the team's poor play in those three losses has nothing to do with this week's decline in attendance.

Which of the following, if true, most strongly supports the position held by the front office of the baseball franchise?
(A) The spectators who wrote letters to the local sporting news were long-standing fans of this minor league baseball team.
(B) Many minor league baseball franchises attribute a drop in attendance to the quality of play of the team only after a string of losses.
(C) Other minor league teams in that region of the state reported a similar drop in attendance this week.
(D) This was the not the first time this team suffered multiple lopsided losses in a single week, prompting similar letters to the local sporting news.
(E) This minor league team is over four hours from the closest major league team, so many of the minor league team's fans do not often attend major league games.

Straight C

1) Out of scope - We need a reason for drop in attendance and not who wrote letters
2) This would not strengthen the argument
3) Correct - There must be some reason for the drop in attendance across all the minor league basketball teams. Hence, the previous week's losses is not the reason for less crowd
4) Out of scope - We need a reason for drop in attendance and not who wrote letters
5) If the major league is far away from the minor league, then more people would watch minor league rather than the major league... Says the opposite..

This question awfully resembles an official guide one, about a drop in the rating of a tv program. The correct answer of that question is that...other tv programs experienced similar lost of raitings ;)) Ah, and some people sent emails to croticize the program ;) . Just saying...
