College professor: College students do not write nearly as well as they used to. Almost all of the papers that my students have done for me this year have been poorly written and ungrammatical.

Which one of the following is the most serious weakness in the argument made by the professor?

(A) It requires confirmation that the change in the professor's students is representative of a change among college students in general.

(B) It offers no proof to the effect that the professor is an accurate judge of writing ability.

(C) It does not take into account the possibility that the professor is a poor teacher.

(D) It fails to present contrary evidence.

(E) It fails to define its terms sufficiently.

answer is A.
College professor: College students do not write nearly as well as they used to. Almost all of the papers that my students have done for me this year have been poorly written and ungrammatical.

Professor is making a general assessment abt the college students based upon the writing skills of its student.
(A) It requires confirmation that the change in the professor's students is representative of a change among college students in general.
