### HideShow timer Statistics

In the United States, of the people who moved from one state to another when they
retired, the percentage who retired to Florida has decreased by three percentage points
over the past ten years. Since many local businesses in Florida cater to retirees, this
decline is likely to have a noticeably negative economic effect on these businesses.
Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the argument?
A. Florida attracts more people who move from one state to another when they retire
than does any other state.
B. The number of people who move out of Florida to accept employment in other
states has increased over the past ten years.
C. There are far more local businesses in Florida that cater to tourists than there are
local businesses that cater to retirees.
D. The total number of people who retired and moved to another state for their
retirement has increased significantly over the past ten years.
E. The number of people who left Florida when they retired to live in another state
was greater last year than it was ten years ago.

That's nice, the percentage still decreased.
B. The number of people who move out of Florida to accept employment in other
states has increased over the past ten years.
Irrelevant, they aren't retired.
C. There are far more local businesses in Florida that cater to tourists than there are
local businesses that cater to retirees.
D. The total number of people who retired and moved to another state for their
retirement has increased significantly over the past ten years.
Although the stimulus says that people who retire to go to Florida has declined, this answer choice says the total number of peple who retire and move to another state has increased significantly.
E. The number of people who left Florida when they retired to live in another state
was greater last year than it was ten years ago.
Supports the argument
