One more for E.

A can't be right b/c it could weaken the argument

"Town S has a larger population than Town T. "

Say town S has 1000 people and Town T has 100 people. 90 newspapers are sold in Town S and 80 in Town T. Therefor the citizens as a whole in Town S are not better informed than those in Town T.

That being the case, the citizens of town S would be less informed about world events/news. This also weakens the argument.

I would go with D too..

A weekly newspaper does not mean that it is the only newspaper..

Exactly.
E says:
The average newsstand price of newspapers sold in Town S is lower than the average price of newspapers sold in Town T.

This provides another reason for the higher number of papers sold in Town-S thereby stating that the citizens are not necessarily better informed.

A little bit confused between D and E but choose E at last
With D : "A weekly newspaper restricted to the coverage of local events is published in Town S" => big amount of newspaper sold in S just talk about local events =>no "better informed about major world events"

The assumption is more total newspaper means more avg newspaper per person per day, thus more informed.
Quote:
Each of the following, if true, weakens the conclusion above EXCEPT:
(A) Town S has a larger population than Town T.

Meaning newspaper per person may not be more. Weaken.
Quote:
(B) Most citizens of Town T work in Town S and buy their newspapers there.

Again newspaper per person in T may not be less because they buy their newspaper at work and can still be informed. Weaken.
Quote:
(C) The average citizen of Town S spends less time reading newspapers than does the average citizen of Town T.

If S spend less time reading newspapers, they may have a lot of newspaper but they simply lay around and the citizens in S still may be less informed. Weaken.
Quote:
(D) A weekly newspaper restricted to the coverage of local events is published in Town S.

The greater number may be due to this local paper and thus the S citizens may not be more informed in world events. Weaken.
Quote:
(E) The average newsstand price of newspapers sold in Town S is lower than the average price of newspapers sold in Town T.

Yes it's cheaper so everybody buys lots newspaper and become very informed. Not weakening.

So E.
