E. Regular training in cantonment gymnasiums guarantees perfect physical condition



conclusion of the argument is :
Troops of fourth battalion are not vulnerable to such attacks as they train regularly in the cantonment gymnasiums.

we need an option which can weaken the conclusion
options c & e are the only two close contenders

option e upon doing negation test is the breaks the conclusion of the argument
Regular training in cantonment gymnasiums does not guarantees perfect physical condition

IMO E
