A professor studying union leaders found that, on average, they tend to inspire other people a great deal more than non-leaders do. The professor concluded that people who frequently inspire other people are likely to become addicts.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the professor’s conclusion?

A)After becoming head of unions, union leaders learn to inspire other people as a way of finishing tasks.
B)When they are elected, union leaders often use their ability to inspire other people to finish more difficult tasks.
D)People who are likely to become leaders exhibit unusual behavior patterns other than constantly insipring of other people.
E)The leaders that the professor studied were often unsuccessful in finishing what they wanted when they inspired other people.

I think the last sentences is "The professor concluded that people who frequently inspire other people are likely to become union leaders"

Then the option A would make sense.
