Study the following information carefully and answer the question which follows:

Which of the following statements weakens the given statements that the new medication Is responsible for increased number of fatalities?


The givens statement indicates that the new medication can be responsible for the increase in deaths in village A, but in the last option, it is given that a cement factory set up 5 years ago in the village was responsible for leaching ABN in the soil as well as drinking water way above the danger limit, which shifts the blame from medication to the factory and hence weakens the argument.
