B! Thats the assumption in the argument and so it strengthens the argument!

According to kaplan the OA is A.

Reasoning -
Conclusion - Vacationsers looking to save monety should use trains.
Evidence - Trains take 30 minutes les than planes.

Why A - Knowing that the cost of getting to he train station is not mor than getting to the airport does not give either of the options any advantage.

Even I cannot agree with A. Can somebody give an alternate explanation for A?

In the test I chose E, sine i was thinking that if there is no more cash advantages by flying then that would strengthen the argument for trains.
