Option A
The current student-teacher ratio at Vargonia's government-funded schools is higher than it was during the most recent period of economic recession.

It is merely conveying a fact that current S/T ratio with respect to some past economical crisis, but how does this strengthen or weaken the stimuli?

It is merely stating a fact that current S/T ratio is larger then some past value, but the law passed conveys that in future it should not be higher then what it is now. we are not worried/concerned about relative past. However no additional data is provided that confirms that this will be stable(ratio) in future. As far it is a neutral statement, neither weakener nor strengthener.

Explanation for "B"
Conclusion: Jobs will not reduce for teachers in government schools during recession.
Reason: 1) Current student: teacher ratio is required to maintain.
2) Free Education
Assumption: Students will study at the time of recession. The number of students will definitely be equal or more than the current number. There assumptions are required to maintain the conclusion.
So, the above reason given in someone's post that students will not study during recession cannot be true, because it is hampering the conclusion. In both strength and weaken questions, we have to maintain the conclusion.

Now, our task is to strengthen the argument. We have to give a situation in which our conclusion is more believable.
If the number of student remains same, and the rich students will not shift from private school. In this condition also, job will not reduce. Please note, argument is saying that "JOBS WILL NOT REDUCE". It is not saying that it will increase.
Switch happened: Students will move from private to government during recession. Obviously, the number of jobs will increase and makes our argument more believable.
