A study published by the Department of Education shows that children in the central cities lag far behind students in the suburbs and the rural areas in reading skills. The report blames this differential on the over-crowding in the classrooms of city schools. I maintain, however, that the real reason that city children are poorer readers than non city children is that they do not get enough fresh air and sunshine.

Which of the following best describes the form of the above argument?

(A) It attacks the credibility of the Department of Education.
(B) It indicts the methodology of the study of the Department of Education.
(C) It attempts to show that central city students read as well as non-city students.
(D) It offers an alternative explanation for the differential.
(E) It argues from analogy.

Answer is D.
The argument blames the non-availability of sunshine and fresh air for the poor performance of students in rural areas.This is an alternative reason for the non performance of rural students.In the penultimate statement in the stimulus overcrowding is blamed for the deficiency in reading skills of village students.This point is aptly brought about by choice D .Please give me kudos . I need them badly to increase my score.
