Traffic safety experts predict that the installation of newly designed air bags in all cars in the United States would reduce the average number of fatalities per traffic accident by 30 percent. In order to save lives, the Department of Transportation (DOT) is considering requiring automobile manufacturers to install air bags of this design in all cars produced after 1998.

Which of the following, if true, represents the strongest challenge to the DOT’s proposal?

(A) Air bags of the new design are more given to being inadvertently triggered, an occurrence that can sometimes result in fatal traffic accidents.
(B) The DOT is planning to require automobile manufacturers to produce these air bags according to very strict specifications.
(C) After installing air bags in new cars, automobile manufacturers will experience an increase in sales.
(D) The proposed air bag installation program will adversely affect the resale of cars manufactured prior to 1998.
(E) As production costs increase, the profits of many domestic automobile dealers show a marked decrease.

A. If A happens to be true, then it represent the strongest challenge to the DOT's proposal.

(A) Air bags of the new design are more given to being inadvertently triggered, an occurrence that can sometimes result in fatal traffic accidents.This wil lead to more accidents and hence weakens the argumentCORRECT

OA: A (CR1000 answer key download, ref: Test I Qn: 10)

Went with D initially, thinking that the challenge to DOT's proposal will be an unwillingness amongst manufacturers to install the air bags. And what can cause manufacturers to be unwilling to cooperate? Looks like D (decrease in sales).

Re-read question and realized...
DOT will make the installation of air bags a 'requirement'. --> which means, like it or not, the manufacturers will have to comply to the proposal. So, 'unwillingness of manufacturers' is not the challenge that we are looking for.

What can make the DOT's proposal a bad idea? --> The risk of fatalities as suggested in option A.
