During the skiing season, ski lodges spend considerably more on transporting and feeding guests than they do during the off season. Therefore, transportation and food is less likely to be available to a guest at a ski lodge during the off season than they would be during the winter months.

Which of the following, if true about a ski lodge during the off season, most weakens the conclusion drawn above?

A)It employs fewer full-time staff members than it does during the skiing season. Your Answer
B)It spends less per meal on lighter summer foods than it would to feed cold and hungry skiers.
C)Its guests, on average, stay for a longer time than do those who come during the skiing season.
D)It holds monthly expos during which chefs' best dishes are showcased.
E)Some of its vehicles may be broken, and will not be replaced until the next skiing season.
