In the United States, injuries to passengers involved
in automobile accidents are typically more severe
than in Europe, where laws require a different kind
of safety belt. It is clear from this that the United
States needs to adopt more stringent standards for
safety belt design to protect automobile passengers
Each of the following, if true, weakens the argument
(A) Europeans are more likely to wear safety belts
than are people in the United States.
(B) Unlike United States drivers, European drivers
receive training in how best to react in the
event of an accident to minimize injuries to
themselves and to their passengers.
(C) Cars built for the European market tend to
have more sturdy construction than do cars
built for the United States market.
(D) Automobile passengers in the United States
have a greater statistical chance of being
involved in an accident than do passengers in
(E) States that have recently begun requiring the
European safety belt have experienced no
reduction in the average severity of injuries
suffered by passengers in automobile
I choose D. This is an Weaken-Except question. Which one doesn't give an alternate explanation to why injuries in the U.S. are more severe.
A) Gives alternate explanation. They wear belts more often.
B) Gives alternate explanation. They know how to drive better.
C) Gives alternate explanation. They have better cars.
D) Doesn't give another explanation for less severe injuries, only that there are likely to be more injuries with no qualification of their severity.
E) Weakens by saying that there is evidence showing that there is probably another alternate explanation.
