The proposal to increase bus services in Bellaville is ridiculous. The streets are already so congested that adding more buses will only exacerbate the traffic problem. Passengers who ride these new buses can expect an even longer commute.

Which of the following, if true, will most seriously weaken the conclusion above?
A. Studies have shown that increased bus service does not necessarily reduce traffic congestion.
B. When Smithville increased its bus service last year, many citizens supported the plan.
C. In order to pay for the new buses, Bellaville will have to cut spending in other areas.
D. In most cities, not all buses that are in service at any given time are filled to at least 75 percent capacity.
E. Many commuters who drive in Bellaville would take public transportation if more services were available.

Very Easy.

Conclusion: The plan to increase buses is ridiculous.

Fact: The Streets are already Congested.

Weakener: More people will use these buses in place of other modes of travel.

A. Studies have shown that increased bus service does not necessarily reduce traffic congestion. : Strengthener. We need to Weaken. Hence, Incorrect.
B. When Smithville increased its bus service last year, many citizens supported the plan. : So, People support or reject. We don't care.
C. In order to pay for the new buses, Bellaville will have to cut spending in other areas. How will it get the money to buy those buses is Irrelevant.
D. In most cities, not all buses that are in service at any given time are filled to at least 75 percent capacity. : So, we still don't know whether increasing buses is going to help. Incorrect.
E. Many commuters who drive in Bellaville would take public transportation if more services were available. : Wow, So, they are going to use Buses instead of their own cars. Weakener. Plan is Awesome Man.
