Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I discarded B because it talks of people not watching the debate. The passage is more about the people watching the debate. New Information is added that provides the current analysis wrong. Good Question. _________________

I chose B but I am having a hard time trying to figure out why D is wrong. B clearly states that the reports of debate are essential to receiving votes, however if peoples voting changes unpredictably(from one vote to another) then wouldnt d be correct as well?
First in you mind be clear what you have to negate.
Statement - Hence, winning a televised debate does little to bolster one's chances of winning an election We have to prove that winning a debate will help the candidate to get some more votes
A) watching the debate make people to vote - very close. hold it B) the voting behaviour of people who do not watch debate, depends on the reports of debate. - Agian close C) there are differences of what consititutes winning or losing the debate - it hardly matters to me. I want to know if winning will help the candidate. D)people's voting behaviour may be influenced in unpredictable ways by comments made by the participants in a televised debate - Okay...I have already read commited people will vote to thier candidates they have decided and uncommited once are undecided about who won. This sentence is confusing let me read my STATEMENT again. Oops I'm concerned about how winning a debate can help a candidate. Morever, the word may be in sentence makes it all the more irrelevant E) People who a commited will vote the candidate they decided even if he loses. - This was given in question itself. so no use for me. Anyways I'm concerned about winning.
Lets get back to A) and B) A) If this were true, more people would vote and may vote to the candidate who won the debate. Wait...they haven't written who the new voters will vote. Maybe this will help me negate this one. Lets go to B)
B) Okay it talks about voting behaviour and reports based on the debate.
E.g. If I'm Barack Obama...candidate for President. If I win the debate on television. Someone reads the report in morning and will have a change in his voting behaviour.
According to me B) is way stronger than A)
@holidevil Although it talks about "people who do not watch debate" it is not alien.
An alien (out of scope) is like F) The candidate may speak about somehing controversial during the debate
Think about this are we concerned about what a candidate says in a debate? Nope we care about winning.
