Basically we just have to expose the statistical flaw that even though the percentage dropped the total number of retirees has infact increased which is clearly explained in option E

Conclusion : - decline in the percentage of retirees who relocate to SunState will have a negative impact on businesses there that cater to retirees.
Weaken :- decline in the percentage of retirees who relocate to SunState will not have a negative impact on businesses there that cater to retirees

option E fits the bill :-
It doesn't really matter if the proportion has decreased, as long as the physical number has increased. Say 5 years ago 500 people retired and moved out of state, out of which 50% or 250 came to SunState. If at present 5000 people retire and move to another state, out of which 40% come to SunState, then that means 2000 retirees. This is an eight-fold increase, which will surely positively impact the businesses.(We are only concerned with business that cater to retirees).

(B) The existence of other businesses in SunState that do not cater to retirees is
not relevant.

Hi anairamitch1804 ,

I actually chose C.

Reasons : The conclusion states that reduced influx of retirees in SunState will tend to impact the business negatively. Option C presents an alternate explanation. The negative impact on business is not due to the reduced influx, but due to the increased out-flux. So it is questioning the causality of the passage.
Please tell me where am I going wrong?

Thank!
