I believe (E) does not weaken the argument.
(E) only says why more papers are sold and does not link it to how well the people in town (S) are informed.

Care to elaborate on the reason ? I was thinking that the lower price would undermine the assersion that people are more well-informed. Who knows if they are not buying the cheap papers just to wrap items ?? LOL

WinwinMBA- Hypothetically speaking, if only the Wall Street Journal were available in your town @\$2.50 a pop, would most people still buy the paper everyday? People like us who are current event junkies may pay the extra charge and share papers, but that wasn`t an answer choice.

E. Sure that the lower price in town S has no connection with broader knowledge of information citizens from this town obtain.
