### HideShow timer Statistics

Because of a recent drought in Florida during the orange-growing season, the price of oranges this season will be three times the usual price. This will drive up the cost of producing orange juice and thus push up the price of orange juice for the consumer.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the argument above?
(A) The recent drought was not as severe as scientists predicted.
(B) States other than Florida also supply oranges to orange juice manufacturers.
(C) Other ingredients are used in the production of orange juice.
(D) Last year the price of oranges was actually lower than the average price over the past ten years.
(E) The price of oranges will eventually be \$0.48 per crate.

B

If the other states also supply oranges to the manufacturers, then drought in Florida may not be the single factor that drives up the proces.

"(C) Other ingredients are used in the production of orange juice." - If this means orange is not used in the production of orange juice, then i'll go for C.
