In the late 1980s, four states instituted programs whereby parents could prepay the future college tuition of their children when their children were born. Florida, which was one of these states, would collect prepayments from parents, and then pay out the tuition payments to any of the state's public universities when the child went to college. The governor of the State of Florida at the time concluded that all parents in the state should participate in the program in order to save on tuition costs.

Each of the following, if they had been true, would have been an appropriate reason for some Florida parents not to participate in the program EXCEPT:

A) The prepayment money paid to the state was returned less a large fee if the child did not attend college.
B) Some parents were unsure about which public college in the state their child would attend.
C) The amount of money accumulated by putting the prepayment funds in an interest bearing account would have exceeded the cost of tuition by the time the child was college age.
D) The prepayment money paid to the state was forfeit if a child attended a college in another state.
E) Some parents expected that their children would receive large amounts of financial aid when they arrived at college, and would not need their full tuition paid.

It is B imo. Every other option gives reason for not paying the prepayment. B , on the other hand, does not matter as regardless which public college the child goes, the prepaid amount can be used unless the college is a public college and is in the state.

I agree with the reasoning, just because the parents don't know where their child his head within the state, does not mean that they would not necessarily benefit from the programm.

I went with B.
“Each of the following, if they had been true, would have been an appropriate reason for some Florida parents not to participate in the program EXCEPT:”
I understood this as - each of the following would be a Weakener except:
So, I tried to find a non-weakener which doesn’t necessarily have to be a strengthener.
