Wildlife researchers recently presented a study that states that uncut house lawn grass resembles the natural habitat of snakes. Further, they suggested that snakes are attracted to uncut lawns if the grass grows more than 6 inches. For that reason, they concluded that people should mow their lawns before the grass grows taller than 6 inches.

Which one of the following, if true, would most weaken the conclusion above?

A. Many species of snakes are known to thrive in deserts where there is hardly any grass for habitat.

B. It is an accepted fact that the moisture content in grass has a greater impact than the length of the grass in determining whether the grass resembles the natural habitat of snakes.

C. The researchers found that among lawns that resembled the natural habitat of snakes, the incidence of snake presence was no higher in the uncut lawns than among the cut lawns.

D. The researchers found that grass in lawns in rural areas grew twice as fast as grass in lawns in urban areas.

E. The researchers found that, after grass grows taller than 8 inches, the length of grass does not increase the risk of snakes.

A) Many species loves desert but we need to talk about weakening the conclusion , Hence Irreleveant
B) We dont need to compare among factors , which is the best one or not, Hence Irrelevant
C)CORRECT = The research told that no effect of grass height on snakes
D) Rural areas? Out of scope
E) 8 inches? We are just focusing on 6 inches , Out of Scope

IMO C.
It states that the incidence of snakes are no higher in uncut lawns than in cut. This certainly weakens the conclusion.
