most doctors dismiss male pattern baldness as a problem of heredity. a new theory, however, postulates that baldness can also result from any number of external factors, such as a stressful urban lifestyle. supporters of this new theory point to the fact that the incidence of baldness is almost twice as common among males who live in large cities as it is among those who live elsewhere.

which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the new theory described above?

1. scientists have developed several drugs that halt baldness in men and can be taken internally.
2. census reports show that most men who are born in large cities live almost their entire lives within the city of their birth in order to near their families.
3. most men do not develop male pattern baldness until they reach the age of 55, at which point their thoughts turn to pursuing a more restful lifestyle.
4. men who have never lived in a large city are those least likely to develop male pattern baldness.
5. a fertility study determined that men who have developed male pattern baldness are less likely to marry and reproduce.

i have the most doubt about the official answer right on this question!!

C. this suggests that it is not the stessed envn that causes baldness. men start shedding :wink: only after 55, when they are out of stressed city atmosphere.
1. who cares
2.out of the way..indirectly supports, anyway.
4.strengthen it
5.ho ho...!

Only C stands a chance

i also voted for c, but it is b and here is the explanation:
the conclusion of this weaken argument is that baldness is caused by external factors (and not internal ones), and it states that there are more bald guys in big cities. (b) turns this premise on its head by saying that many bald guys in cities are related to other bald guys in the same city, so the cause might be heredity after all. treating baldness is utterly irrelevant, so you can get rid of (a). (c) is too general, because it talks about all men rather than just those who live in big cities. (d) strengthens the argument by saying that guys who don't live in cities don't go bald. (e) also lessens the chance baldness is hereditary.
