In Kravonia, the average salary for jobs requiring a college degree has always been higher than the average salary for jobs that do not require a degree. Over the last few years, the number of Kravonians enrolled in college has been growing steadily. Therefore, the number of Kravonians entering the job market who have at least the qualification of a college degree will eventuallty be significantly higher than it has been over the last few years.

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

A. Kravonians with more than one college degree earn little more, on average, than do Kravonians with only one college degree
B. The average number of years Kravonian college students remain enrolled before completing a degree has been increasing over the past several of years.
C. Despite the increase in the number of Kravonians attending college, the percentage of the population attending college is lower in Kravonia than in most other countries.
D. In recent years, empoyers have been requiring college degrees for workers in jobs that were previously performed successfully by Kravonians who did not have college degrees.
E. For many years, employers in Kravonia hva ehad difficulty finding enough college graduates to fill the high-paying jobs that were available.

B is the only one thats making a litte(though not complete) sense here...A better option would be that the number of people who actully earn a degree is lower...Even though the enrollments are higher...I'll choose B...

By POE, I am left with option 'B'.

Conclusion is that the no. of Kravonians entering the job market with a college degree, would be higher than it was over the last years. We need to find a statement that weakens it.

A. Kravonians with more than one college degree earn little more, on average, than do Kravonians with only one college degree. Irrelevant.
B. The average number of years Kravonian college students remain enrolled before completing a degree has been increasing over the past several of years.
C. Despite the increase in the number of Kravonians attending college, the percentage of the population attending college is lower in Kravonia than in most other countries. Comparison with other countries is irrelevant .
D. In recent years, employers have been requiring college degrees for workers in jobs that were previously performed successfully by Kravonians who did not have college degrees. It supports the conclusion.
E. For many years, employers in Kravonia have had difficulty finding enough college graduates to fill the high-paying jobs that were available. Irrelevant

Tough One!

B it is.

B states that years (students remained enrolled) on average is increasing for past several of years. So there will be not much impact of increase in enrollment on "Kravonians entering the job market with a college degree" as similar thing already happening for past several years.

Conclusion : The number of Kravonians entering the job market who have at least the qualification of a college degree will be high than earlier.
Premise:The average salary for jobs requiring a college degree has always been higher than the average salary for jobs that do not require a degree.

The no.of people who hold a college degree is high to earn a high.
To weaken the argument: the no.of people who hold a degree are high to procure low salary.

a) nothing mentioned about multiple degrees
b)the same thing specified in the stimulus
c)irrelavent
d)weakens the argument
e)doesnt weaken the argument.
