A) consider that there might be minor, quick-growing crops that do mature in forty-five days or less

The conclusion clearly refers to major and minor is irrelevant or rather out of scope.

(B) identify any alternative method of weed control that could be used instead of the method it rejects

Synthetic Herbicides

(C) distinguish among the various kinds of synthetic herbicides

Who cares?

(D) allow for the possibility of combining the two weed-control methods it mentions

Crux of the argument as it is not evaluated this and it could be an option

(E) allow for the possibility that plants other than rye, handled the same way, might have the same effect.

Other than rye – out of scope.

Rye sown in the fall and plowed into the soil in early spring leaves a residue that Is highly effective at controlling broad-leaved weeds, but unfortunately for only about forty-five days. No major agricultural crop matures from seed in as little as forty-five days. Synthetic herbicides, on the other hand, although not any longer-lasting, can be reapplied as the crop grows. Clearly, therefore, for major agricultural crops, plowing rye into the soil can play no part in effective weed control.
The argument is most vulnerable to the objection that it fails to

(A) consider that there might be minor, quick-growing crops that do mature in forty-five days or less
(B) identify any alternative method of weed control that could be used instead of the method it rejects
(C) distinguish among the various kinds of synthetic herbicides

fairly unassuming question from the standards of the new GMAT.. also allow for used twice mcan easily be used to take those options more seriously and make the right choice between D and E that means

A, B C Out of Scope
D Correct
E. equally out of scope

Author concludes that sowing RYE is not helpful in removing weeds. i we prove that anyhow RYE can be helpful in any other was as presented in choice E then it weakens the argument

D for me. It weakens the author conclusion that Rye is ineffective by stating it might have some effect.
