### HideShow timer Statistics

In an effort to increase the number of taxicabs available during the hours from 8:00 pm to 6:00 am, the Taxi Commission , which sets fares, has proposed a \$ 1.000 per ride surcharge during those hours. This is unlikely to have any effect on the availability of taxis. The fleet owners who lease cabs to drivers on a shift basis will simply raise the per shift charge for those hours , thus eliminating any incentive for the individual driver to work the night time hours.

Which of the following, if true, most weakens the argument above ?

A. Fleet owners usually have unleased cars during the nighttime covered by the Commission's proposal
B. Most people who need a taxi during the nighttime hours would not mind paying the \$1.00 surcharge
C. The majority of licensed cabs are owned by individual drivers who do not lease them from fleet owners
D. The previous year the Commission approved a 10 percent increase in taxi fares
E. Passengers would not treat the surcharge as part of the driver's tip
