In Clark County, recent legislation requires that all new homes built with a pool be equipped with door alarms that sound when any door leading to the pool area is opened. The state legislature claims that this will save lives because parents will be alerted when their children enter the pool area. However, many homeowner's associations have protested the new law. The homeowner's associations conclude that few lives will be saved because children are supervised in pool areas over ninety-five percent of the time by their parents.

Which of the following, if true, would most seriously weaken the homeowner's associations' argument?

a) Many parents have formal training in CPR to resuscitate children that have fallen into a pool and drowned.
b) Since new homes with pools represent a small fraction of the homes in Clark County, the law will be rather narrow in scope.
c) The cost of the new door alarms is not prohibitive for most new home buyers.
d) Clark County has an excellent system of emergency medical technicians, all of whom are trained to resuscitate children that have fallen into pools and drowned.
e) Most of the deaths that result from a child falling into a pool occur when parents are home with their child but not supervising the child's activities.

Prethinking: What if Parents are not Supervising Children's activities other than the time they are in Pool

Upon checking the Options, E does the same.
