The number of articles concerning the use of sensatorium dummies in crash testing published last year in consumer magazines was considerably lower relative to prior years. No longer manufactured, these dummies can be severely damaged in crash tests and many of the sensatorium dummies damaged two years ago are still awaiting necessary repairs. It is clear, therefore, that the lower number of consumer magazine articles published last year about sensatorium dummies was due to the decline in their availability for use.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the news reporter's argument?

(A) All articles about crash tests involving sensatorium dummies that were submitted for publication last year were published.
(B) The average time that crash test managers must wait to use a sensatorium dummy has increased over the past few years.
(C) The number of consumer magazines on the market was the same last year as in prior years.
(D) Sensatorium dummies cannot be utilized for more than one cycle of crash tests in a given year.
(E) Responding to competition, most consumer magazines began last year by introducing a new format limiting their former emphasis on crash test articles.

E is the correct answer..

the argument says that the availability of dummies is the main reason for less no of publications

so to weaken it we can show an alternate cause for the desired effect

E provide just that.. if magazines have changed preferences.. thats the reason.. so it weakens the most among the 5 choices provided
