(A) Test evacuations showed that putting on the smoke hoods added considerably to the overall time it took passengers to leave the cabin. -> weakens
(B) Some airlines are willing to buy the smoke hoods eventhough they consider them to be prohibitively expensive. -> Out of scope
(C) Although the smoke hoods protect passengers from the toxic gases, they can do nothing to prevent the gases from igniting. -> The safety official recommends smoke hoods to prevent passenger deaths from gas inhalation only.
(D) Some experienced flyers fail to pay attention to the safety instructions given on every commercial flight before takeoff. -> Out of scope
(E) In many airplane accidents, passengers who were able to reach emergency exits were overcome by toxic gases before they could exit the ariplane. -> If the statement is true, the smoke hoods would actually prevent passenger deaths from smoke inhalation.

(A) Test evacuations showed that putting on the smoke hoods added considerably to the overall time it took passengers to leave the cabin. - This weakens the argument as it makes them less safe.
(B) Some airlines are willing to buy the smoke hoods even though they consider them to be prohibitively expensive. - Out of scope (and neither strengthens or weakens)
(C) Although the smoke hoods protect passengers from the toxic gases, they can do nothing to prevent the gases from igniting. -The argument is about inhaling toxic fumes not preventing fires and the hoods presumably would prevent inhalation so the act of combustion is out of scope for their directed purpose.
(D) Some experienced flyers fail to pay attention to the safety instructions given on every commercial flight before takeoff. -Out of scope
(E) In many airplane accidents, passengers who were able to reach emergency exits were overcome by toxic gases before they could exit the ariplane. -The only strengthener that clearly prevents smoke inhalation.
