In the last two years alone, nearly a dozen of Central University's most prominent professors have been lured away by the higher salaries offered by competing academic institutions. In order to protect the school's ranking, Central University's president has proposed increasing tuition by 10% and using the extra money to offer more attractive compensation packages to the most talented and well-known members of its faculty.

Which of the following provides the most persuasive argument against the university president's proposed course of action?

A) It is inevitable that at least some members of the faculty will ultimately take jobs at other universities, regardless of how much Central University offers to pay them. -These "some" people will always do as they like. We are worried about the school's ranking for which the plan is being formulated by the president.
B) Other universities are also looking for ways to provide higher salaries to prominent members of the faculty. -Out of scope. It doesn't concern with the ranking of the school.
C) Central University slipped in the last year's ranking of regional schools. -We already know this information. This is just a fact set.
D) The single most important factor in ranking a university is its of racial and socioeconomic diversity. -Correct. The compensation package won't help the school. This option provides an alternative solution.
E) The president of Central University has only been in office for 18 months and has never managed such a large enterprise. -We are not worried about the experience of the president.

right, both A and D are 2 common and important patterns. A is a trap b/c A is too extreme; "at least some members" is not enough to weaken the argument. D shows that the gap of the argument.
