HideShow timer Statistics

The harmful effects of marijuana and other drugs have been considerably overstated. Although parents and teachers have expressed much concern over the dangers that widespread usage of marijuana and other drugs pose for high school and junior high school students, a national survey of 5,000 students of ages 13 to 17 showed that fewer than 15% of those students thought such drug use was likely to be harmful. Which of the following is the strongest criticism of the author’s reasoning?

(A) The opinions of students in the age group surveyed are likely to vary with age.
(B) Alcohol use among students of ages 13 to 17 is on the rise, and is now considered by many to present greater dangers than marijuana usage.
(C) Marijuana and other drugs may be harmful to users even though the users are not themselves aware of the danger.
(D) A distinction must be drawn between victim less crimes and crimes in which an innocent person is likely to be involved.
(E) The fact that a student does not think a drug is harmful does not necessarily mean he will use it.

I'm gonna go with C.
B and D are out of scope
A and E do not lead to anything conclusive.
