The lobbyists argued that because there is no statistical evidence that breathing other people’s tobacco smoke increases the incidence of heart disease or lung cancer in healthy nonsmokers, legislation banning smoking in workplaces cannot be justified on health grounds.

1. The argument reported above would be most seriously weakened if it were true that
(A) Breathing smoke-filled air increase the incidence of headaches and coughs in healthy nonsmokers.
(B) Most nonsmokers dislike the odor of smoke-filled air.
(C) Smoke-filled air is a major source of the dirt that damages computers and other sensitive equipment.
(D) Most workers would prefer to have smoking banned in workplaces.
(E) Legislation banning smoking in workplaces decreases friction between smoking and nonsmoking workers and is easy to enforce.

2. Of the following, which is the best criticism of the argument reported above?
(A) It ignores causes of lung cancer other than smoking.
(B) It neglects the damaging effects of smoke-filled air on nonsmokers who are not healthy.
(C) It fails to mention the roles played by diet, exercise, and heredity in the development of heart disease.
(D) It does not consider the possibility that nonsmokers who breathe smoke-filled air at work may become more concerned about their health.
(E) It does not acknowledge that nonsmokers, even those who breathe smoke-filled air at work, are in general healthier than smokers.

Sorry, I dont have the OA. I have posted these questions mainly so that I get to know the OA!! Thanks :)

A and B.

I am not sure if second is B. For the second one E does not make sense. Hence B.

2) is B since the arg is revolving around "healthy" nonsmokers. What about "unhealthy" nonsmokers? They are going to sue the ones who smoke? :-)

1. A
The gap : banning smoking in workplaces is based only on the fact that there are no statistical data.
