### HideShow timer Statistics

Opponents of laws that require automobile drivers and passengers to wear seat belts argue that in a free society people have the right to take risks as long as the people do no harm others as a result of taking the risks. As a result, they conclude that it should be each person's decision whether or not to wear a seat belt.

Which of the following, if true , most seriously weakens the conclusion drawn above?

A.Many new cars are built with seat belts that automatically fasten when someone sits in the front seat
B.Automobile insurance rates for all automobile owners are higher because of the ned to pay for the increased injuries or deaths of people not wearing seat belts
C.Passengers in airplanes are required to wear seat belts during takeoffs and landings
D.The rate of automobiles fatalities in states that do not have mandatory seat belt laws is greater than the rate of fatalities in states that do have such laws
E. In automobiles , a greater number of passengers who do not wear seat belts are injured than are,passengers who do wear seat belts

Straight B

The Argument says that, no harm is done to other people when someone does not wear a seat belt. Hence if an Answer choice provides a reason that not wearing seat belts is harming other people ( not physically but financially ) then it is enough to weaken the argument.

Option B provides that reason and hence is correct.
