IMO B

Conclusion -> Decision was to move to State B.

Now we have to weaken this conclusion.
A. Most scholarships are given to applicants who establish financial need.
This can support their decision to move.

B. To qualify for the lower tuition, applicants must prove that they have lived in State B for at least three years.
I believe this directly attacks the conclusion by saying they wont get any financial aid if they move to State B.

C. There are many colleges in State A that offer tuition discounts.
Why did they even think of going to state B at first ?? - Irrelevant

D. State B is several hundred miles from State A, and moving there would be difficult.
This wont weaken the argument, as they have already decided to move to State B

E. Regular tuition at Fullem State College is lower than that of most state colleges
Strengthening
