### HideShow timer Statistics

Statistician: A financial magazine claimed that its
survey of its subscribers showed that North
Americans are more concerned about their
personal finances than about politics. One
question was: “Which do you think about
more: politics or the joy of earning money?”
This question is clearly biased. Also, the readers
of the magazine are a self-selecting sample.
Thus, there is reason to be skeptical about the
conclusion drawn in the magazine’s survey.
Each of the following, if true, would strengthen the
statistician’s argument EXCEPT:

(A) The credibility of the magazine has been called
into question on a number of occasions.
(B) The conclusions drawn in most magazine
surveys have eventually been disproved.
(C) Other surveys suggest that North Americans are
just as concerned about politics as they are
(D) There is reason to be skeptical about the results
of surveys that are biased and
unrepresentative.
(E) Other surveys suggest that North Americans are
concerned not only with politics and
finances, but also with social issues.

E as it shows no comparison between politics and finance.
instead shows comparison against social issues.

E clearly does not effect the argument.

E would not strengthen the critic's argument as it adds the subject of social issues.
