Airline official cites that the news agencies tend to report more about the accidents -major or minor after a serious accident .He further states that more reporting about the accidents does not mean that number of accidents rise .
Now what would invalidate this reasoning used by airline official -something that connects more accidents and more news reporting .
We can see that actually the number of accidents increase during certain peak hours.

We cannot deduce the highlighted part from option B. B states the trend of occurrence of accidents. This does not necessarily mean B claims that the # of accidents have risen during peak travel months. In Gmat, we can not base a fact on a trend.
I would go with C.
Airline officer says that the media coverage is biased. C weakens by giving reason that media coverage is unbiased.

Thank you

Hi Friend ,

The reason i did not opt for C is that even if the media is unbiased then also there may be more accidents happening as we can not clearly deduce from the argument that the accidents did not increase .
If the media do not report minor accidents then we can not be sure about the number of accidents happening therefore i do not see this option in any way weakening the conclusion.
B states that the number of accidents do increase during certain peak hours thus thereby increasing reporting , hence the conclusion is weakened . There are actually more accidents happening hence more reporting .
Hope it helps

Warm Regards,
Arvind

Hello,
I can now see your reasoning behind B.
But I am still not convinced that C does not weaken the argument.

Thank you.

Mainly we need to prove that airline accidents are not just the media coverage but beyond that it is a real problem. option B is on same lines. in peak traveling months because of high traffic, high number of accidents occurs and media coverage increases.

We need to find a choice which states number of accidents is due to actual accidents not due to news sources

Choice B clearly states that

Other choices states news is reason i.e. choices A,C and D

And irrelevant for E
