Chairperson of College Board: We spend a substantial amount of money on compensating fresh college graduates as part-time faculty for introductory courses. However, we can easily save most of this expenditure by giving our final year students, who have themselves studied such courses, the opportunity to teach these courses, which are mostly taught to first-year students. The final year students can be given extra credits and a minimum stipend for this role.

Which of the following, if true, provides the best support for the conclusion that the college should not employ final year students to teach introductory courses?

(A) Final year students have a relatively light schedule and can easily find the time to teach introductory course classes, which are typically of a shorter duration than classes for other courses.

(B)The total amount paid in overtime to full-time senior lecturers for training the final year students to conduct the introductory classes will be equal to the amount paid in remuneration to the college graduates hired as part-time faculty to whom no such training is provided.

(C)The fresh college graduates hired as part-time faculty are generally students who are in the process of applying to various colleges for research fellowship programs.

(D) The final year students who will be considered for the teaching positions will be among the top ranking students in the class.

(E) The college does not have to spend any money on advertising for part-time jobs since it has a surplus number of applicants for the limited teaching positions required for the introductory courses.

An interesting question, because it's of the "weaken the argument" type, but it's worded as "strengthen the argument" one.

A strengthens the argument instead of weakening it.

B is the correct one: it shows the proposed course of action would cost more to this college than the current system.

C: kind of strengthens the argument by showing that recent graduates are very busy and might not be good teachers.

D: strengthens, not weakens.

E: strengthens again.
