Wunderlitch Park, located in Madison County, has a strict regulation requiring mountain bicyclists to wear helmets. Recently, a group of bicyclists acknowledged that helmets may prevent injuries to the wearer, but protested claiming the park should only regulate activities that may hurt a third party. Hence, the bicyclists argued that they should have the right to refrain from wearing helmets.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the conclusion in the passage?

A. Ninety percent of bicyclists who use Wunderlitch park prefer to wear a helmet to protect themselves in case of an accident.
B. Lawyers for Wunderlitch Park have warned that the repeal of the helmet regulation would lead to an increase in general admission park entrance fees to cover the
legal expenses associated with personal injury lawsuits.
C. Motorcyclists in a neighboring county are required to wear a helmet while on the road.
D. Parks that require the use of helmets have a lower percentage of accidents resulting in deaths than parks that don't require the use of helmets.
E. More bicyclists who do not wear helmets are seriously injured in accidents than bicyclists who do wear helmets.

Imo B

The argument talks about bicyclists who concedes that wearing helmet will prevent injuries .But they are not in favour of a rule that mandate them to wear helmets in part rather they argue that the park should activities that may hurt other people .
Here a little pre thinking will surely make our job a lot easier than skimming through the options and comparing them .
We have to look for something that makes sure that cyclists are responsibility for the injuries of other.
Option B does pretty well .

Premise - Regulate only what hurt a third party
Conclusion: Grant the right to refrain from wearing helmet

To weaken we have to break the linkage between conclusion (right to refrain) and premise (doesn't hurt the third party)

However, D says - "repeal of the helmet regulation would lead to an increase in general admission park entrance fees". Hence, this will hurt the third party.

B. Lawyers for Wunderlitch Park have warned that the repeal of the helmet regulation would lead to an increase in general admission park entrance fees to cover the

D. Parks that require the use of helmets have a lower percentage of accidents resulting in deaths than parks that don't require the use of helmets.
E. More bicyclists who do not wear helmets are seriously injured in accidents than bicyclists who do wear helmets.

Error Analysis:

The bicyclists argue that as the public aren't affected, the law shoudn't be imposed.

Option B, weakens the argument saying that the entrance fee of the park has to be raised because the park is paying for the expense of personal injury of the public.

Therefore the answer is Option B.

This is indeed a tricky one :
IMO:
Concentrate on below line ;
Recently, a group of bicyclists acknowledged that helmets may prevent injuries to the wearer, but protested claiming the park should only regulate activities that may hurt a third party..

In B , the non wearing of helmet is causing entrance fees to rise that in turn is hurting the people financially ....

We need to say that the bicyclists should not be given right to refrain from wearing helmets.


(B) Lawyers for Wunderlich Park have warned that the repeal of the helmet regulation would lead to an increase in general admission park entrance fees to cover the legal expenses associated with personal injury lawsuits.
This choice says that Park has a financial motive or advantage by compelling bicyclists to wear helmets as the bicyclists may file lawsuits for personal injury expenses.
