In 1985 the city’s Fine Arts Museum sold 30,000 single-entry tickets. In 1986 the city’s Folk Arts and Interior Design museums opened, and these three museums together sold over 80,000 such tickets that year. These museums were worth the cost, since more than twice as many citizens are now enjoying the arts.
Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the author’s assertion that more than twice as many citizens are now enjoying the arts?
(A) Most visitors to one museum also visit the other two.
(B) The cost of building the museums will not be covered by revenues generated by the sale of museum tickets.
(C) As the two new museums become better known, even more citizens will visit them.
(D) The city’s Fine Arts Museum did not experience a decrease in single-entry tickets sold in 1986.
(E) Fewer museum entry tickets were sold in 1986 than the museum planners had hoped to sell.

when a question asks us to weaken the argument,
we should carefully go through theconclusion and the option which weakens the conclusion is the best answer
as first option weakens the conclusion stating that the number of visitors did nt change it is the correct one..

Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the author’s assertion that more than twice as many citizens are now enjoying the arts?
(A) Most visitors to one museum also visit the other two.this solution is right - it weakens the assumptions that no visitor visits another museum
(B) The cost of building the museums will not be covered by revenues generated by the sale of museum tickets. out of scope - the question asks for the number of visitors not if they were cost worthy.
(C) As the two new museums become better known, even more citizens will visit them.out of scope
(D) The city’s Fine Arts Museum did not experience a decrease in single-entry tickets sold in 1986. this would strenthen the argument
(E) Fewer museum entry tickets were sold in 1986 than the museum planners had hoped to sell.out of scope

it has been concluded that the more peple will be atttracted due to establishment of three musuem. However in option A it has been said that the same number of people who used to visit fine Art museum will go the other museum which has weaken the argument.

hope i m correct
