State Spokesperson: Many business people who have not been [#permalink]

Many business people who have not been to our state believe that we have an inadequate road system. Those people are mistaken, as is obvious from the fact that in each of the past six years, our state has spent more money per mile on road improvements than any other state.
Which of the following, if true, most seriously undermines the reasoning in the spokesperson's argument?
A. In the spokesperson's state, spending on road improvements has been increasing more slowly over the past six years than it has in other states.
B. Adequacy of a state's road system is generally less important to a businessperson considering doing business there than is the availability of qualified employees.
C. Over the past six years, numerous businesses have left the spokesperson's state, but about as many businesses have moved into the state.
D. In general, the number of miles of road in a state's road system depends on both the area and the population of the state.
E. Only states with seriously inadequate road systems need to spend large amounts of money on road improvements.

D is wrong as we have no information as to how many people are in the state vs other states so it's a non starter. Further, it doesn't really weaken the argument. Even if we knew that per capita spending was low in this state, it doesn't necessarily imply that the roading quality was low.
