Gina doesn't understand why she cannot get a job as a computer engineer. She even went back to school and got a degree in computer science. After two years on the job market with only a few interviews and no offers, she is staring to wonder if she is not getting hired because she is a woman. One of her friends told her that women seldom succeed in technology fields, and she is beginning to believe it.

Which of the following, if true, most weakens the argument above?
A Gina got her degree online.

B All the people Gina has interviewed with have been men.

C Gina had both female and male professors in college.

D Gina graduated with a C average.

E Gina interviews very well.

The argument says

'One of her friends told her that women seldom succeed in technology fields.. '


From C option we can infer there is equal opportunity in teaching field but this neither strengthens nor weakens the argument

I hope this helps

IMO D.

D weakens the argument by giving a different reason as to why Gina is not getting a job.

I find option C irrelevant.
