### HideShow timer Statistics

Traffic safety experts predict that the installation of newly designed air bags in all cars in the United States would reduce the average number of fatalities per traffic accident by 30 percent. In order to save lives, the Department of Transportation (DOT) is considering requiring automobile manufacturers to install air bags of this design in all cars produced after 1998.

Which of the following, if true, represents the strongest challenge to the DOTâ€™s proposal?
(A) Air bags of the new design are more given to being inadvertently triggered, an occurrence that can sometimes result in fatal traffic accidents.
(B) The DOT is planning to require automobile manufacturers to produce these air bags according to very strict specifications.
(C) After installing air bags in new cars, automobile manufacturers will experience an increase in sales.
(D) The proposed air bag installation program will adversely affect the resale of cars manufactured prior to 1998.
(E) As production costs increase, the profits of many domestic automobile dealers show a marked decrease.

A

In this case, the airbags cause what they are supposed to prevent.

Agreed with gsr.

They want to install airbags in order to reduce fatalities in accidents, but if (A) is true, the air bags themselves will cause more accidents.

A

in that case it's even easier because with POE you can easily check that other answers are out of scope or totally irrelevant :
(B) sounds logical - it's no a challenge to the proposal
(C) sales details
(D) re-sales stretegy issue
(E) profit margin
