Quote:
Citizens of parktown are worried by the increased frequency of serious crimes committed by local teenagers. In response, the city government has instituted a series of measures designed to keep teenagers at home in the late evening. Even if the measures succeed in keeping teenagers at home, however, they are unlikely to affect the problem that concerns citizens, since most crimes committed by local teenagers take place between 3pm and 6pm


P1: people worried by increased serous crimes committed by teenagers.
P2:Teenagers were forced to stay in home in late evenings
C:they could not control because most crimes are committed between 3-6.


in oder to weaken the conclusion we need to show a small flaw in the conclusion drawn.

remember the word serious crimes is used in the P.that word plays the crucial role here.

If we succeed to show that serious crimes are committed @nights or minor crimes are committed between 3-6 we win.

Which of the following,if true, most substantially weakens the argument ?

1) Similar measures adopted in other place have failed to reduce the no of teenagers in the late evening
This info is of no importance.

2) Crimes committed by teenagers in afternoon are mostly small thefts and inconsequential vandalism Bingo!!

3) teenagers are much less likely to commit serious crimes when they are at home than when they are not at home
this needs few more assumptions to be true.

4) Any decrease in the need for police patrols in late evening would not mean that there could be more intensive patrolling in the afternoon out of scope

5) The schools in parktown have introduced a number of after school programs that will be available to teenagers until 6pm on weekday afternoons
So What? on Weekends wat will happen

I pick 'C'. The argument. Keeping teenagers at home wll reduce serious crime but its unlikely to hapen coz most teenagers commit crime at night. The argument fall apart if we proove keeping teenagers at home heps reduce crime. 'C' does wats OA??

The arguement here describes a plan by city government to stop "serious" crimes teenagers commit and thereafter, the argument criticizes the plan as "most" crimes commited by teenagers are in afternoon.
Please emphasize on the word "serious" used in favour & "most" used to oppose. If any option proves that "most" crimes committed are not serious, then the government plan will still hold true as its main purpose is to decrease "serious" crimes.

Hence option B is the best choice among others.

I think it is B because it cites the instances of small/petty thefts whereas the Paragraph quotes facts of Serious crimes.

+1 for B

Conclusion of the argument : they(the steps) are unlikely to affect the problem that concerns citizens.

The Key player in the conclusion is "the problem", which is defined in the first sentence of the argument => Citizens of parktown are worried by the increased frequency of serious crimes committed by local teenagers

B weakens the argument by suggesting that crimes that would be committed by teenagers would not be serious crimes.

+ 1 for B.Citizens of the town are not concerned with petty crimes they are more concerned about the ones which are serious in nature.
