In the United States, of the young adults who move from one state to another to attend college, the percentage who attend college in California has decreased by five percentage points over the past ten years. Since many local businesses in California cater to college students,these declines are likely to have a noticeably negative economic effect on these businesses and therefore on the economy on California

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

a.)The number of young adults who moved from one state to another to attend college has increased significantly over the past ten years.

b.)Young adults who moved from one state to another to attend college moved a greater distance,on average, last year than such people did ten years ago.

c.)Young adults were more likely to move from another state to attend college in New York last year than young adults were ten years ago.

d.)The number of young adults who left California to attend college in another state was greater last year than it was ten years ago.

e.)California attracts more young adults who move from one state to another to attend college than does any other state.

Can anyone explain why is it is the OA?

I got this wrong on a Veritas practice test and did not really understand "their" solution

The percentage of college student decreased. So if there were more people overall who goes to others states for college overall it could mean that there is actually more college students in California rather than less. They might be a smaller fraction of the population, but the total number has increased.
