got this one wrong.... I was thinking it is A.
But I after taking a closer look, I see why E is the answer.
Conclusion is that crime did not increase in 10 years.
Premise is The media now devote more coverage to crime than they did ten years ago.
there can be various reasons for that. one of the reason is public interest.
A. it is not supporting the conclusion.
B. There is no evidence in this argument
C. it is not a counter example, it is consistant with the conclusion
D. makes the conclusion false
E. it is actually providing an alternative explanation.
Crime did not increase, still coverage is more, what is the reason for that?
So our answer choice should be E.
