Strengthen -> Parents decision is relevant.

B. Terry’s sister, Leslie, graduated from Fullem State College five years ago.
Irrelevant to the argument, we had to discuss about the parents move.

C. The housing market in State B is unpredictable.
Weakens the argument

D. More than two-thirds of all students who attend Fullem State College do not need financial aid.
Doesn't support the argument.

E. If the lower-tuition plan at Fullem State College is successful this year, it is likely that the program will be expanded in subsequent years
lower-tuition plan - Irrelevant

A. State B offers a large tax credit to families who send their children to colleges within State B.
Strengthen - If they get a rebate on their taxes, which family wont stay there.

Answer A
