Sports analyst: 90% of Country D's tennis professionals achieve positions in the international top ten, usually before reaching the age of 20. It must be that Country D's population has genetic characteristics that are suited to playing the sport of tennis.
Tennis coach: That's not true. Country D's success in tennis is not related to genetics, but to the skills and experience of its players.

Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the tennis coach's objection to the analyst's claim?

A) The winner of last year's international tennis tour was a player from Country B.
B) The physique that a tennis player is born with is an extremely important factor that can affect that player's success as a professional.
C) In Country D's education, tennis is a compulsory activity that is taught to students through all twelve years of their formal education.
D) In the last Olympic Games, Country D did not win medals in any other discipline other than tennis.
E) Every year, 2% of Country D's tennis professionals are accused of using illegal substances to enhance their performance.

Brilliant question, so the passage asks for anything that can support the coach's idea that skills and experience are the major forces driving the good rankings of the player. C provides you a fact that students have been playing tennis since they were very young so by the time a player turns into a pro, he is already quite experienced so supports the tennis coach's viewpoint.

A Does not add up anything, we are not interested in what happened in a specific year.
B Physique shows genetic mapping so kind of weakens if we were to consider it
D We are only interested in tennis and not in any other sports so we can skip it.
E Out of scope
