Long-term and short-term relaxation training are two common forms of treatment for individuals experiencing problematic levels of anxiety. Yet studies show that on average, regardless of which form of treatment one receives, symptoms of anxiety decrease to a normal level within the short-term-training time period. Thus, for most people the generally more expensive long-term training is unwarranted.

Which one of the following, if true, most weakens the argument?

(A) A decrease in symptoms of anxiety often occurs even with no treatment or intervention by a mental health professional.
(B) Short-term relaxation training conducted by a more experienced practitioner can be more expensive than long-term training conducted by a less experienced practitioner.
(C) Recipients of long-term training are much less likely than recipients of short-term training to have recurrences of problematic levels of anxiety.
(D) The fact that an individual thinks that a treatment will reduce his or her anxiety tends, in and of itself, to reduce the individual’s anxiety.
(E) Short-term relaxation training involves the teaching of a wider variety of anxiety-combating relaxation techniques than does long-term training.

By weakening the argument, we want to prove that the long-term training is warranted. Even though symptoms of anxiety decrease to a normal level within the short-term-training time period, Only C provides us a reason to still go for long-term training.

Maybe, (C) - 1st best, (B) - second best, as it depends on the skills of those who conduct training while (C) only relies on the intrinsic effectiveness of trainings without reference to the conductors.
