Sheila: Health experts generally agree that smoking a tobacco product for many years is very likely to be harmful to the smokerâ€™s health.
Tim: On the contrary, smoking has no effect on health at all: although my grandfather smoked three cigars a day from the age of fourteen, he died at age ninety-six.
A major weakness of Timâ€™s counterargument is that his counterargument
(A) attempts to refute a probabilistic conclusion by claiming the existence of a single counterexample
(B) challenges expert opinion on the basis of specific information unavailable to experts in the field
(C) describes an individual case that is explicitly discounted as an exception to the expertsâ€™ conclusion

(E) tacitly assumes that those health experts who are in agreement on this issue arrived at that agreement independently of one another
