Pls provide the valid explaination for the reasoning. Not convinced with the reasoning. Other seems more valid to me.

question stem is asking for a statement that will weaken the authority's plan to finance the proposed improvements. Bear in mind that in the passage, the authority stated that making these improvements will increase ridership dramatically.

POE
a) irrelevant; public hearings can put a halt to the proposed increase, should there be any violent objections from the public. irrelevant in terms of increasing ridership of the commuter
b) irrelevant; payment to a private conductor might only be a small part in the grand scheme of things. certainly will not influence ridership
c) strengthen; if the commuters buy more token in advance, this will increase revenue and thus help to finance the improvements. however, higher purchases of tokens does not necessarily mean increase in ridership.
d) weaken; a similar scenario happened to the same two bridges in the past, and ridership during that period declined. this implies that should the same scenario repeats itself, there's a chance that the current users of the commuter rail may switch to other longer alternatives. this directly negates the plans by the authority of increasing ridership.
e) irrelevant

Hi asethi

Although it seems pretty direct. Pls post the OE by Gmat Prep. I have some loose points, that hindered the understanding.

Thanks.
