Studies have shown that specialty sports foods contain exactly the same nutrients in the same quantities as do common foods from the grocery store. Moreover, sports foods cost from two to three times more than regular foods. So very few athletes would buy sports foods were it not for expensive advertising campaigns.

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

(A) Sports foods are occasionally used by world-famous athletes.
(B) Many grocery stores carry sports foods alongside traditional inventories.
(C) Sports foods are easier than regular foods to carry and consume during training and competition.
(D) Regular foods contain vitamins and minerals that are essential to developing strength and endurance.
(E) Sports foods can nutritionally substitute for regular meals.

Information given is :
Fact - Sports food = <same nutrients + same quantities>= Common/Regular foods
- Cost of sports food > Cost of regular food (much more !! )
Conclusion - very few athletes would buy sports foods were it not for expensive advertising campaigns.

Option A - Out of scope. It does not matter who uses them
Option B - Again, irrelevant to the discussion
Option C - Given an ADVANTAGE of sports food over regular foods. Seems to be the correct choice
Option D - Nothing much we can do with this information
Option E - This is No advantage. This just shows that sports foods can DO something, which regular food can also do

So option C is correct answer
