got my mistake, option argues about opponent's stadium rather than home stadium, which is meaningless, considering the arguement..
but yet not convinced about C..

Since this is a weaken question, what we are actually trying to do is to give a reason which will just weaken a conclusion, with a range of objection being >0% and <100%.What it means that the answer does not have to completely destroy the conclusion.

Say here, what we are assuming with the alternate clause is that the ground may be one of the reasons for improving the team's performance rather than the home crowd. Yes, as 'fluke' said we may assuming that a strong offensive does not lead to a strong performance. What if the opponent's defence is just as good?But this is not given in the answer choice. Since we are to take the answer choices in GMAT, for weakeners, as true and not assume too much from these choices, Answer C is just about the strongest answer as compared to other choices.

Hope this clarifies!!!

I think E is right Answer
The team scored an average of only 24 points per game in its own stadium, ranking in the bottom quartile of scores for all teams.

Team score average 24 points per game which lead to ranking in the bottom quartile of scores it means other team have more average than 24 points & they are at higher rank then team

So if other teams have high rank --> Average >24 --> hurts the conclusion that the support of the team's fans provided the team with a psychological lift, leading to better score performance other teams performed better

The premise in the argument is that the game score in home stadium (average) - the game score in opposite stadium = about 10.

Choice E is also talk about overall average score. Not explain the cause lead to the two kinds of score in home stadium and opposite stadium.

Choice C is correct.

C is the correct option,as it provides an alternate reason for the team to win in their home stadium.

C provides the alternate explanation and is thus, the correct answer to this weaken question.
