Abolition of govt regulations of airfares has increased competition among airfares and thus will eventually lead to compromises in airline safety.Anxious to reduce fares in what has, as a result of deregulation, become a highly competitive market,airlines will be tempted to reduce costs by decreasing safety inspections and routine maintenance of aircraft.

Which of the following, if true, wud cast the most serious doubt on the prediction that deregulation of airfares will ultimately compromise airline safety?

(A)Consumers select an airline as much on the basis of its safety record as on the basis of its fares.
(B)There are a no of mechanical prob that cannot be detected in the routine inspection of aircraft.
(C)The amount of commercial air traffic has increased significantly since the regulation of airfares was aboished.
(D)The no of airline bankruptcies has increased since the regulations of airfares was abolished.
(E)When airfares were regulated, airlines were more inclined to invest in the developement of new aircraft.

Conclusion: Anxious to reduce fares in what has, as a result of deregulation, become a highly competitive market, airlines will be tempted to reduce costs by decreasing safety inspections and routine maintenance of aircraft.

(A)Consumers select an airline as much on the basis of its safety record as on the basis of its fares.[This choice clearly makes a pitch that price and safety plays an important role in consumer selection of the airlines. This choice weakens the argument. – hold it]
(B)There are a no of mechanical problem that cannot be detected in the routine inspection of aircraft.[Mechanical problem detection is out of scope – eliminate it]

(C)The amount of commercial air traffic has increased significantly since the regulation of airfares was abolished.[This has no direct impact on conclusion – eliminate it]

(D)The no of airline bankruptcies has increased since the regulation of airfares was abolished.
[Bankruptcies out of scope of the argument – eliminate it]
(E)When airfares were regulated, airlines were more inclined to invest in the development of new aircraft. [But nothing that links to safety concerns – eliminate it]
