A. Groups that consist of more than three musicians are usually more expensive for clubs to hire than are groups that consist of fewer than three musicians.
B. In towns that have passed similar laws, many clubs in residential areas have relocated to nonresidential areas.
C. Most of the complaints about the music have come from people who do not regularly attend the clubs.
D. Much of the music popular at the local clubs can be played only by groups of at least four musicians.
E. Amplified music played by fewer than three musicians generally is as loud as amplified music played by more than three musicians.

After receiving numerous complaints from residents about loud, highly amplified music played at local clubs, Middletown is considering a law that would prohibit clubs located in residential areas from employing musical groups that consist of more than three people.

Stmt suggests: It is the number of people that causes amplified music voice to increase and reducing the number of people will reduce the noise.
However if we prove that noise is independent of the number of people. This will be weaked.
Option E clearly states that amplified sounds doesn't reduce with less number of people.
but lets look at other options too

The likelihood that the law would be effective in reducing noise would be most seriously diminished if which of the following were true?

A. Groups that consist of more than three musicians are usually more expensive for clubs to hire than are groups that consist of fewer than three musicians.No effect on noise or doesnt break the conclusion that will reduce noise
B. In towns that have passed similar laws, many clubs in residential areas have relocated to nonresidential areas.this infact supports the argument
C. Most of the complaints about the music have come from people who do not regularly attend the clubs.It has no effect since it does not weaken the stmt. as they will have noo impact on sound
D. Much of the music popular at the local clubs can be played only by groups of at least four musicians.This again will no weaken since their is no opposition stated to ti
E. Amplified music played by fewer than three musicians generally is as loud as amplified music played by more than three musicians.As proved above this will weaken as rule will have no effect

The conclusion isn’t explicitly stated in the stimulus, but we are told in the answer choice that: employing groups with less than 3 people will (clearly) reduce noise. Is this necessarily true? This seems like an overly broad conclusion. How can we conclude that fewer people leads to less noise? A correct answer choice would be one that provides evidence that lack of people in a group won’t influence them to increase the volume of their music. This leads us to (E).
