### HideShow timer Statistics

Scientists today accept that the increased severity of hurricanes in the last 10 years has been a result of warmer water in the Caribbean, which “feeds” the storms as they pass over it by a mechanism not yet completely understood. Thus, these severe hurricanes are yet more evidence of global warming.

Which of the following, if true, would most strengthen the argument above?

(A) Accurate statistics on the warming of the earth do not go back more than 100 years.

(B) Scientists have not discovered a new undersea current, fueled by an undersea volcano, which could have funneled warmer water into the Caribbean.

(C) The arctic ice caps have been losing three feet of circumference each year for the past five years.

(D) A new modeling computer program projects that the severity of hurricanes will increase over the next 10 years.

(E) Some scientists believe they will soon prove that the mechanism by which a storm picks up energy from warm water is based on convection.

Why not E but B is the answer?
