Recent studies have found that teenagers who listen regularly to the heavy-metal band Suicidal Intentions are ten times as likely to attempt suicide as are other teenagers. It can therefore be concluded that the band’s lyrics inspire teenagers to attempt suicide.

Which of the following, if true, most weakens the conclusion of the passage?

Teenagers, especially males, commit suicide at much higher rates than do people in any other age group.

Among teenagers who listen regularly to the band, only a small minority have attempted suicide.

The band’s lyrics, which reflect existential despair and nihilism, attract teenagers who have considered attempting suicide.

One of the members of the band has himself attempted suicide on three different occasions.

Relatively few of the band’s regular listeners are teenagers.
