The newly renovated housing development in city X is cleaner, bigger, and less expensive than other local housing developments. The development, therefore, should attract thousands of people and become the most popular residential area in city X.

Which of the following, if true, would LEAST weaken the argument above?


a) The housing development is located near many local stores and highways.

b) A cleaner and less expensive housing development has recently been built in city X.

c) The housing development provides no convenient access to secondary schools.

d) Most of those planning to move to city X are reluctant to move into renovated buildings.

e) Although rents are lower in the renovated development than they are at other comparable housing projects, when utility bills are included, the cost of living is higher in the new development

Side note, this is the first time Im seeing this type of CR question, i.e. which statement least weakens.

Is this really on the GMAT now ?

yes, this is a type of gmat question that you might encounter on the real one. the thing is, whenever you find such a question (eg. "which of the following least weakens"), normally 4 of the answer choices will weaken the argument and the correct answer choice will either NOT weaken or strengthen.
