B seems to actually strengthen the argument by correlation. E seems like a plausible answer (subtlty about profits could be perceived as weaking), I vote B.

A - The author conlcudes that private airline industry is doing well and A says that there are issues. Weakens the argument substatially
C - States that govt intervention is actually good - tax subsidies. Weakens argument.
D- out of scope
E- Ok - but two different types of operations and price increases may not be really analogous to the question in hand.

B it is. Directly compares Private Mass transits (as doing well) vis-a-vis govt owned/operated.

I think B is the answer because it is inline with the argument(to some extent strengthens also). All others have given different reasons why government operated industries are worse than private operated industries, weakening the arguments.

Agree with B. Sometimes these double negative questions can be confusing.
