2.A neighborhood group plans to protest the closing of the neighborhood’s only recreation center on the grounds that to do so would leave the neighborhood without local access to a recreation center. “Our neighborhood already has the most residents per center of any neighborhood in the city,” complained one resident, “and closing this center would make the situation unacceptable since access to recreational facilities is a necessity for this neighborhood.”
Each of the following, if true, weakens the resident’s argument EXCEPT:

(A) A large number of the neighborhood’s residents are unable to travel outside their locality to gain access to recreational facilities.
(B) Children, the main users of recreational facilities, make up a disproportionately small segment of the neighborhood’s population.
(C) Often the recreation center in the neighborhood is open but not being used.
(D) Programs that are routinely filled at other recreation centers must be canceled at the neighborhood’s recreation center due to lack of interest.
(E) As people become more involved in computers and computer games, recreation centers are becoming increasingly less important.

For (A)

Only (A) supports the argument that the recreation center should not be closed.
