Consumer: The problem with bottled spring water is that it is no more healthy than well-filtered tap water, and many companies produce effective water filtration systems for home use. Further, the price of a 16 ounce bottle of water is, on average, over ten times that of the same amount of water run through a home filtration system. Thus, most bottled spring water producers will soon go out of business.

Which of the following, if true, most severely weakens the argument presented above?

(A) Several of the companies who bottle and sell spring water have gone out of business during the past five years.
(B) Because of the inherent costs associated with the bottling and transport, most bottled spring water suppliers are unable to reduce the wholesale prices they must charge for bottled spring water.
(C) Most consumers who regularly purchase bottled spring water base their beverage purchase decisions exclusively on preference for taste.
(D) Some people prefer the taste of tap water to that of bottled spring water.
(E) Because of technological advances and growing demand, home-based water filtration systems are more effective and more commonly available than they had been when bottled spring water was first widely distributed.
