In just two short years McGovern Textiles has made a miraculous recovery from near ruin. Profits are on the rise, productivity has nearly doubled, and sales are better than ever. No business can thrive in this way without competent leadership and a clearly defined organizational structure. Clearly, McGovern's new executive director, Frida Tully, has provided the management skills that made this recovery possible.

Which of the following, if true, would LEAST strengthen the above argument?

A. McGovern Textiles has had a clearly defined organizational structure for the past three years.
B. The general demand for textiles has increased dramatically during the past two years.
C. Before Frida Tully became executive director, there was not competent leadership in the firm.
D. The increase in productivity was caused by a new organizational structure that was put into place last year.
E. Frida Tully became executive director of this firm two years ago.

IMO every option except A strongly supports the conclusion. So answer should be A.

B does not support the argument.B clearly weakens the argument by saying something else was responsible for the growth other than “org struc” & “leadership”.

I can see why you went with A.3 yrs is not 2 years.Its not 100% right.But B is a pretty strong weakener

B is very clear.
It offers another reason that the company's performance is improving.

If we look carefully then it can be seen that B is the answer as it gives another reason behind the overwhelming success of the company.
So answer is B
