While motorcycles with larger, more powerful engines generally accelerate faster and achieve higher speeds than do motorcycles that have smaller engines, the majority of motorcycle crashes involve motorcycles with smaller engines. Therefore, to improve the safety of people who ride motorcycles, we should encourage them to ride motorcycles with larger, more powerful engines.

Which of the following if true most seriously weakens the argument above?

A. More experienced and knowledgeable riders are more likely to ride motorcycles that have larger engines than motorcycles that have smaller engines.

B. Motorcycles that have smaller engines tend to be lighter and therefore easier to maneuver at low speeds than motorcycles with larger engines.

C. The average speed at which motorcycles were traveling just prior to crashes is relatively low, approximately 30 miles per hour.

D. Approximately 75% of crashes involving motorcycles also involve another vehicle, most often a passenger automobile.

E. Passing on two lane highways can generally be done more quickly, and thus more safely, on a motorcycle with a larger engine than on one with a smaller engine.

A it is
-It conveys that the more experienced and skill full riders ride bikes equipped with larger engines .So the engines are not at fault rather the skill of a particular rider is at issue .

Edited choice E, because in its original form, E could perhaps have been construed as expressing an alternative explanation that would serve to weaken the argument.

Therefore, to improve the safety of people who ride motorcycles, we should encourage them to ride motorcycles with larger, more powerful engines.

Which of the following if true most seriously weakens the argument above?

A. More experienced and knowledgeable riders are more likely to ride motorcycles that have larger engines than motorcycles that have smaller engines.The more experience the rider has the more powerfull engine he chooses and that means most novice riders ride smaller engine bikes and if they will have bigger engines they still will have accidents as before.Best weakner

B. Motorcycles that have smaller engines tend to be lighter and therefore easier to maneuver at low speeds than motorcycles with larger engines. no weakening

C. The average speed at which motorcycles were traveling just prior to crashes is relatively low, approximately 30 miles per hour. not a weakener

D. Approximately 75% of crashes involving motorcycles also involve another vehicle, most often a passenger automobile.
strengthens the argument by stating that the point used to categorise has very less impact on the outcome.

E. Passing on two lane highways can generally be done more quickly, and thus more safely, on a motorcycle with a larger engine than on one with a smaller engine.out of scope because ther is no corelation between accidents and highways and two lane highways in the argument
