Some sports historians claim that professional tennis players develop unique playing styles that result from a combination of peculiarities of each players physical attributes and the influence of coaches during their early adaption to the game. But when the increase in strength and endurance of modern players is discounted, it becomes readilly apparent that the playing styles of the current crop of professional tennis players are no different from the styles of players from pervious generations. Clearly, there is a universally efficient tennis style to which all professional tennis players conform.

The argume above is most weakened by which of the following statements?

A. The difference in physical attributes among the tennis players are even more pronounced than the sports historians beleive.
B. Few current professional tennis players are familar with the professional players 50 years ago.
C. The increased strength of current tennis players contributes more to the develoment of individual playing styles than does increased endurance.
D. All of the early coaches of today's professional tennis players were professional tennis players themselves earlier in their lives.
E. Weight training and greater attention to diet are the primary factors in the increased strength and stamina of the current generation of professional tennis players.

The argume above is most weakened by which of the following statements?

A. The difference in physical attributes among the tennis players are even more pronounced than the sports historians beleive. This is out of scope and we need to eliminate it instantly

B. Few current professional tennis players are familar with the professional players 50 years ago. (

C. The increased strength of current tennis players contributes more to the develoment of individual playing styles than does increased endurance.

D. All of the early coaches of today's professional tennis players were professional tennis players themselves earlier in their lives. This weekends the argument. if todays coaches were players during the last generation. then they may have shown todays players the same style of tennis that they are used to. it is therefore wrong to conclude that there is a universally efficient tennis style to which all professional tennis players conform. Today style may only conform to the time of their current coaches

E. Weight training and greater attention to diet are the primary factors in the increased strength and stamina of the current generation of professional tennis players. This is out of scope too
