Since we have a weakening question, let's begin by paraphrasing the argument:

What we learned in the lab about fullerenes will teach us about fullerenes outside of the lab.

Next, let's identify the author's assumption: laboratory fullerenes are substantially the same as real world fullerenes.

Finally, let's make our prediction. To weaken an argument, predict an answer that attacks the author's assumption. Here:

Lab fullerenes are significantly different than real world fullerenes.

Armed with our prediction, we attack the choices, looking for a match:

a) no distinction - eliminate.
b) no distinction - eliminate.
c) no distinction - eliminate.
d) a difference! If the naturally occurring fullerenes are unique, then what we learned in the lab won't teach us anything about the natural world. Choose (d)!

Since we found a match for our prediction, we should confidently choose (d) and move on. However, let's step into "review mode" and take a quick peek at (e):

e) no distinction - eliminate.
