Researchers announced recently that over the past 25 years the incidence of skin cancer caused by exposure to harmful rays from the sun has continued to grow in spite of the increasingly widespread use of sunscreens. This shows that using sunscreen is unlikely to reduce a person’s risk of developing such skin cancer.

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

(A) Most people who purchase a sunscreen product will not purchase the most expensive brand available.
(B) Skin cancer generally develops among the very old as a result of sunburns experienced when very young.
(C) The development of sunscreens by pharmaceutical companies was based upon research conducted by dermatologists.
(D) People who know that they are especially susceptible to skin cancer are generally disinclined to spend a large amount of time in the sun.
(E) Those who use sunscreens most regularly are people who believe themselves to be most susceptible to skin cancer.

We need an option which can tell something other than sunscreen is causing cancer.

(A) Most people who purchase a sunscreen product will not purchase the most expensive brand available....Not relatable
(B) Skin cancer generally develops among the very old as a result of sunburns experienced when very young..Correct answer..people developed it young and even if they use it they would not see effect of sunscreen
(C) The development of sunscreens by pharmaceutical companies was based upon research conducted by dermatologists...not relevant
(D) People who know that they are especially susceptible to skin cancer are generally disinclined to spend a large amount of time in the sun...no mention of if they are using sunscreen or not.
(E) Those who use sunscreens most regularly are people who believe themselves to be most susceptible to skin cancer...its strethening

Very good question indeed! Though other options do not make sense or can be easily eliminated, the answer choice is subtle.
