here it comes:

opponents of laws that require automobile drivers and passengers to wear seat belts argue that in a free society people have the right to take risks as long as the people do not harm others as a result of taking the risks. as a result, they conclude that it should be each person's decision whether or not to wear a seat belt.

which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the conclusion drawn above?

a. many new cars are built with seat belts that automatically fasten when someone sits in the front seat.
b. automobile insurance rates for all automobile owners are higher because of the need to pay for the increased injuries or deaths of people not wearing seat belts.
c. passengers in airplanes are required to wear seat belts during takeoffs and landings.
d. the rate of automobile fatalities in states that do not have mandatory seat-belt laws is greater than the rate of fatalities in states that do have such laws.
e. in automobile accidents, a greater number of passengers who do not wear seat belts are injured than are passengers who do wear seat belts.

for a while i do not give you the official answer, i'd like to see whether you'll think the way i did...

I think B. The argument says that each person should be free to wear seat belts because he/she is allowed to take such a risk as long as nobody else is harmed as a result of him/her taking the risk.

A) does not even come close to weaken the argument
B) the right answer since it says that because of those people not wearing seat belts, the cost of car insurance for everyone has increased
C) is off topic
D) does not offer any evidence for whether people not wearing seat belts harm others by their reckless act
E) This does not weaken the argument since again, it just shows that people not wearing seat belts harm themselves more than the people who do

Just learning from the master. Everytime I post something, I'm always so afraid to get corrected by any of you, including you Stoolfi . Yet at the same time, I learned a lot from you guys. Cheers!
