Reading skills among high school students in Gotham have been steadily declining, which can only be the result of overcrowding in schools.
Which of the following weakens the conclusion?
a)the high schools system in gotham succeeds in giving students a good education at considerably less cost than do most systems.
b)several cities have found that overcrowding in the schools is not always associated with lower reading scores
c)gotham schools have greater teacher student ratio than most other school systems
d)students reading skills have not declined in other cities where high schools are just as crowded as those of gotham
e)schools are not overcrowded in many cities where high school reading scores have declined more than they have in gotham.
An explanation to OA (E) is - E strongly communicates that there is an another cause by saying that reading skill has declined in schools despite the schools are not crowded. D is not as strong as E in weakening the argument.
