Question Stats:

63% (02:10) correct 38% (01:13) wrong based on 17 sessions
These days, everyone talks about being too busy. But all this busyness does not seem to result in things getting done. Just as many tasks are still left uncompleted, phone calls unreturned, and appointments missed as there were in the days before this outbreak of busyness. Therefore, people must not be as busy as they claim.
Which one of the following, if true, would most seriously weaken the conclusion in the passage?

(A) These days, looking busy is a status symbol.
(B) People have to do much more these days than before the so-called outbreak of busyness.
(C) People waste so much time talking about being busy that they fail to get things done.
(D) Just as many things are getting done now as before the so-called outbreak of busyness.
(E) People have more leisure time these days than before the so-called outbreak of busyness.

The conclusion is that “people must not be as busy as they claim”

But if it were true that “People have to do much more these days “ than it is not true that “people must not be as busy”

So IMO the answer is B

Go with B.

In order to weaken the conclusion, we should find something indicating that today people are more busy than before.
B illustrate it clear

between B and D, D states that the amount of work is equal.Hence POE.

B gives a clear reason.
