### HideShow timer Statistics

Astronauts who experience weightlessness frequently get motion sickness. The astronauts see their own motion relative to passing objects, but while the astronauts are weightless their inner ears indicate that their bodies are not moving. The astronauts’ experience is best explained by the hypothesis that conflicting information received by the brain about the body’s motion causes motion sickness.
Which one of the following, if true, provides the strongest additional support for the hypothesis above?
(A) During rough voyages ship passengers in cabins providing a view of the water are less likely to get motion sickness than are passengers in cabins providing no view.
(B) Many people who are experienced airplane passengers occasionally get motion sickness.
(C) Some automobile passengers whose inner ears indicate that they are moving and who have a clear view of the objects they are passing get motion sickness.
(D) People who have aisle seats in trains or airplanes are as likely to get motion sickness as are people who have window seats.
(E) Some astronauts do not get motion sickness even after being in orbit for several days.

Well,... it is a tricky one, but after a lot of deliberation I think 'A' is the answer.

I think it should be between A and C ? What is the OA?

I think C is the answer...On the contrary, i think that A is weakening the argument...

A...

Here discussion in the question is about the hypothesis and not the simlar explaination of astronauts.

Astronauts(feel not moving but obsreve themselves moving)
Ship inside the cabin with no view(feel they are moving, but inside they observe that they are not moving) hence represent the hypothesis correctly.
Note example of ship is opposite to astronauts one but matches the hypothesis ( feel and observe opposite).
