HideShow timer Statistics

critics complain about the jobs that were lost in the city under
Delmont’s leadership. Yet the fact is that not only were more jobs created than were
eliminated, but each year since Delmont took office the average pay for the new jobs
created has been higher than that year’s average pay for jobs citywide. So it stands to
reason that throughout Delmont’s tenure the average paycheck in this city has been
getting steadily bigger.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the argument in the
advertisement?

A. The unemployment rate in the city is higher today than it was when Mayor
Delmont took office.

B. The average pay for jobs in the city was at a ten-year low when Mayor Delmont
took office.

C. Each year during Mayor Delmont’s tenure, the average pay for jobs that were
eliminated has been higher than the average pay for jobs citywide.

D. Most of the jobs eliminated during Mayor Delmont’s tenure were in declining
industries.

E. The average pay for jobs in the city is currently lower than it is for jobs in the
suburbs surrounding the city.
