The excessive number of safety regulations that the federal government has placed on industry poses more serious hardships for big businesses than for small ones. Since large companies do everything on a more massive scale, they must alter more complex operations and spend much more money to meet governmental requirements.

Which of the following, if true, would most weaken the argument above?
a) small companies are less likely than large companies to have the capital reserves for improvement.
b) the operation of small companies frequently rely on the same technologies as the operations of large companies.
c) safety regulation codes are uniform established without reference to size of company
d) large companies typically have more of their profits invested in other businesses than do small companies.
e) large companies are in general more likely than small companies to diversify their markets and products

I like A.

A says, since small companies have less capital for improvements mandated by regulations, they are the hardest hit and probably will be taken out of operation.
Large companies have the money to implement the regulations.So, even though large companies face hardships, they are less effected than the small companies are.

Same here . My bet would be on B . If there is something which establishes similarities between small and large companies , it will weaken the argument .
