A) So they sell more papersâ€¦ does it mean they are more informedâ€¦ I donâ€™t think soâ€¦ it is due to higher population that they sell more! (Weakens)

B) Citizens of town T also read papers buying them in town S, therefore those who buy the papers in town S are not only its citizens (Weakens)

C) Spending less time does not mean that they are less/more informed than people in town Tâ€¦ in town S they might read faster and skip local newsâ€¦ or anything else, so they do it at the expense of timeâ€¦ (Weakens)

E) Ok, so the price is lower in town Sâ€¦ but it does not mean that due to this fact citizens of town T do not buy the newspaper because of the higher price thereâ€¦

I think it is Eâ€¦

A,B and E raises possible reasons why sale of newspaper is higher in Town S.
D suggests that people of Town S are only informed about local news.
C appears to suggest that spending less time to read newspaper means that they're less informed.

But out of the 5, C has the least evil. Spending less time to read doesn't really mean they're not informed about major world events.

I hate to choose because all 5 are poor choices, but in an actual test, I'll click C and move on.
