If the public library shared by the adjacent towns of Redville and Glenwood were relocated from the library’s current, overcrowded building in central Redville to a larger, available building in central Glenwood, the library would then be within walking distance of a larger number of library users. That is because there are many more people living in central Glenwood than in central Redville, and people generally will walk to the library only if it is located close to their homes.
Which one of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument?
(A) The public library was located between Glenwood and Redville before being moved to its current location in central Redville.
(B) The area covered by central Glenwood is approximately the same size as that covered by central Redville.
(C) The building that is available in Glenwood is smaller than an alternative building that is available in Redville.
(D) Many of the people who use the public library do not live in either Glenwood or Redville.
(E) The distance that people currently walk to get to the library is farther than what is generally considered walking distance.

A, D, C, and E are irrelative. B is the only one, but I can not figure out why ... :?:

B is the right choice because it strengthens the argument which is the following: because there are many more people living in central Glenwood than in central Redville, relocating the library to the bigger building in central Glenwood will position the library within the walking distance for a larger number of library users.
Now, choice B states that the area covered by Glenwood is equal to that of Redville. Therefore, Glenwood has a higher population density, making library location closer to a lot of people.

Makes sense?

You need to prove that more people will be using the library. It is said that the population density is more for Glenwood than the other town; therefore if the glenwood is of the same size of the other town total number of people who can avil this facility will automatically be more.

(B)

It does no help to the argument. We need find out a difference between the two town.
