Party leaders feared that the recent addition of conservative planks to the party platform would diminish the popularity of the party among younger voters. Some predicted that the number of party members younger than 25 would decline, or, at best, stay the same. This fear, though, has proven to be unfounded: of all party members, the percentage younger than 25 is higher than ever. Rather than hurt the party, conservatism has helped attract more young voters to the party.
Which of the following, if true, would most seriously weaken the authorâ€™s conclusion?
Many party leaders are uncomfortable with the political direction the party is taking, for both political and ideological reasons
Party candidates continue to suffer defeats when running on the party platform
The number of party members older than 25 declined significantly after the announcement of the new conservative platform
In the last election, the ratio of voters under the age of 25 who voted for the party to all voters under the age of 25 increased
Over half the population of potential voters under the age of 25 never vote
A is wrong because the stem didnâ€™t say anything about political leaders.
B is out of scope. Nothing was said about defeats.
C is right because if the number of members older than 25 declined significantly (significantly being the keyword here), then this would automatically offset the number of members younger than 25 making it seems as if there were more members younger than 25 whereas the number of members younger than 25 might not have changed from what it was initially.
