An ecology magazine regularly publishes articles on tree diseases. This year , the number of articles on Ophiostoma ulmi , the fungus that causes Dutch elm disease , is significantly smaller than the number of such articles that appeared last year.

Which of the following , if true, weakens the above conclusion?

A.) Many researchers publishing articles are currently studying Stegophora ulmea , a fungus that causes elm leaf spot.
B.) Since its introduction, Dutch elm disease has killed half of the elm trees in North America.
C.) Research on Dutch elm disease that focuses on prevention receives more funding than research that focuses on finding a cure.
D.) A new strain of the fungus Rhytisma acerium infested maple trees at an unprecedented rate this year.
E.) All articles go through at least a one-year review process before publication.

The answer is E
A and B are out of scope .
C is also irrelevant
D may be true but do not know that the scientists working on both the fungus are same may be or may be not .
E is correct.

I marked B as answer. I can understand why B is wrong. But cant get my head around answer E. Opt. E states that "All articles go through at least a one-year review process before publication" . The answer choice E does not state that there is a change in review process between the 2 years. If there is no difference in review process b\w 2 years then it should not make any difference in the number of publication.

The main word is “publish”. The argument it says that. So OA shall be E
