Option E actually strengthens the argument. If Renco employees are not younger than Garnet employees then Renco employees can be affected by stroke -> Salco has no financial incentive by asking Renco employees to test their cholestrol levels

But option C rightly weakens the argument. If Garnet hires some of the ex-Renco employees, these employees can be affected by stroke and Salco would end up paying for this. -> Salco will also lose the financial incentive it had got , by asking the Garnet employees te test their cholestrol levels. Hence to avoid this , Salco has to recommend even Renco employees to undergo the tests

i might be mistaken but, isn't the option C only the option in context here.

Even A is also a contender because of the word 'possibility' --> stroke MAY or MAY NOT occur. If it occurs, it strengths the statement otherwise it weakens.
