Help on eliminating answer choices (Irreverent vs opposed answers) [#permalink]

Hi bros and sis,

Recently, I got into one question that kind of defies the way of my POE method.

Say, if a question is "if true, weakens the conclusion above EXCEPT"

Sure, We know the correct answer is either a "Strengthen" or "Irreverent"

However, what if the answer choices are like:
1. Weaken
2. Weaken
3. Irreverent
4. Irreverent
5. Strengthen


What do you think the correct answer would be??


Just FYI, the question I ran into, is this:
"A greater number of cars are sold in Town P than in Town Q. Therefore, the citizens of Town P spend more time driving their cars, per capita, than do the citizens of Town Q."
You can google the whole quotation to get an idea what the question is like.
I am sorry I cannot post link because I am a new member......


Million thanks

Each of the following, if true, weakens the conclusion above EXCEPT:

A. Town P has a larger population than Town Q.
B. Most citizens of Town Q work in Town P and buy their cars there.
C. Many residents of Town P purchase second cars that they use only rarely.
D. Most drivers from Town P tend to drive only during the day, and only within the city limits of Town P.
E. The average price of cars sold in Town P is lower than the average price of cars sold in Town Q.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
ps_dahiya: Sharad, it will be very helpful if you could format the question a little bit. It was too difficult to read.


Very close between D&E. i marked the wrong one (d).
E is the ans.The ans e tells about price which is not related.
