### HideShow timer Statistics

Lightbox, Inc., owns almost all of the movie theaters in Washington county and has announced plans to double the number of movie screens it has in the county within five years. Yet attendance at Lightbox's theaters is only just large enough for profitabilty now and the county's population is not expected to increase over the next ten years. Clearly, therefore, if there is indeed no increase in population, Lightbox's new screens are unlikely to prove profitable.

Which of the following, if true about Wash. county, most seriously weakens the argument?

A. Though little change in the size of the population is expected, a pronounced shift toward a younger, more affluent, and more entertainment-oriented poulation is expected to occur.

B. The sales of snacks and drinks in its movie theaters account for more of Lightbox's profits than ticket sales do.

tired of typing - it's either A or B...let me know what you think.

will choose A

with B, we cannot conclude that attendance in new locations will be atleast as much as it currently is in the existing locations - though snacks account for the profits

will choose A .

B is actually strengthening the conclusion, by saying that the revenue earned by tickets is lesser than what the argument would suggest.
