Noting that the number of crimes committed in a certain city had decressed in 1982 by 5.2 percent in comparision with 1981, the police chief of the city said, " We see here the result of the innovative police program put into effect in the city at the begining of 1982."

Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the conclusion drawn by the police chief?

(A) Several cities that have recently increased spending for police programs experienced no decrease in crime in 1982, as compared with 1981.
(B) The number of crimes committed in the city is estimated, by the same method each year, from the number of crimes reported.
(C) The number of crimes committed in the suburban areas surrounding the city rose by about 5 pecent in 1982 over the figure for 1981 and were nearly equal in number to those in city in 1982.
(D) The number of crimes committed in the city in 1982 was 10 percent higher than the number committed in 1972.
(E) The size of the age group most likely to commit crimes decreased considerably in city 1982, as against, 1981, beacause of a declining birth rate.

E?

It was not the result of the innovative efforts of the Police department. The crime was lower because of insufficient number of perpetretors.
