A recent report suggests that the increasing popularity of free e-paper will lead to a decline in the willingness of people to buy newspapers in the coming years; however, the report is clearly flawed. Despite the wide accessibility of e-learning courses, students continued to enroll for classroom courses. Given that the availability of e-learning courses did not stop students from paying for classroom courses, it is unlikely that people will cease buying newspapers in the future.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the argument?


A. Some publishing companies print free newspapers and make money only on advertisements.
B. News consumption is an individual activity that doesn’t require interaction with another individual, which is the deciding factor while making a choice between classroom courses and online courses.
C. People who take online courses are more likely to consume their news through e-paper than students who take classroom courses.
D. A high majority of people read newspapers while travelling to work when they usually lack access to the internet.
E. Many news agencies now charge for subscriptions to their e-papers.

A. Some publishing companies print free newspapers and make money only on advertisements.
This might weaken but it is very weak. Keep it for now.

B. News consumption is an individual activity that doesn’t require interaction with another individual, which is the deciding factor while making a choice between classroom courses and online courses.
This perfectly explains the analogy presented by the author and is better than B. Keep it

C. People who take online courses are more likely to consume their news through e-paper than students who take classroom courses.
Changes the scope and is irrelevant. Drop it.

D. A high majority of people read newspapers while travelling to work when they usually lack access to the internet.
Does opposite. Drop it.

E. Many news agencies now charge for subscriptions to their e-papers.
Irrelevant. Drop it.

Out of A and B. B is a better choice !
Answer: B
