developed countries have made adequate provisions for social security for senior citizens.state insurers(as well as private ones) offer medicare & pension benefits to people who can no longer earn.in india,with the collapse of the joint family system,the traditional shelter of the elderly has disappeared.and a state faced with financial crunch isn't in a position to provide social security.so,it is advisable that the working population give a serious thought to building a financial base for itself.

which of the following weakens the conclusions drawn in the passage,the most?

a)the investible income of the working population,as a proportion of its total income ,will grow in the future

b)the insurance sector is underdeveloped & trends indicate that it'll be extensively privatised in the future

c)india is on the path of development that'll take it to the developed country status,with all its positive & negative implications

d)if the working population builds a stronger financial base,there will be revival of the joint family system

i think the ans should be (d),but i'm not sure. plz state the correct ans alongwith the explanation

This doesnt look like a standard question in the first place- note the question does not ask for "most weakens" - so i dont know if there is one answer- any answer that weakens the conclusion will be right. 1 and 2 dont imply that they will cause any sort of support for the elderly.
d could be possible because they clearly state that as long as join family system was in place elderly were sheltered.
c is also doubtful as just because a country is developed they need not proved the same kind of benefits.

What is clat? I would strongly advise you against posting Non standard / non GMAT questions here. This is a forum for gmat prep. Im annoyed that i wasted 3 minutes on trying to figure out this one. You may confuse other folks by posting these questions here and waste their time too.

if you want to learn CR then learn the GMAT questions and ask relevant doubts.

seems as if you aren't interested in helping me out.
as far as the other folks are concerned i'm sure they are smart enough & decisive & won't get perplexed by the unstandardised questions.
anyways, i won't be posting such unstandardised ques. again & sorry as u had to waste 3 min on solving it out.

I think it is C.

A is irrelevant as growth in investible proportion no way relates to whether people should build a strong financial base.
B brings an alien and new idea.
D strengthens the idea as that option supports the last line of the passage " so,it is advisable that the working population give a serious thought to building a financial base for itself."
