Question 8

Ranu is an ordinary sportsperson. In the last two university sprint events, her performances in the heats were pathetic. Which of the following, if true, weakens the above argument the most?


Option A: Since this statement is in line with the author's argument, this is not the correct option.

Option B: If this is true, then this will weaken the author's argument as this will drag out Ranu from the ordinary person category. Thus, this is the correct option.

Option C: This statement will strengthen the author's argument. This is not the correct option.

Option D. This statement is irrelevant to the author's position. This is not the correct option.

Option E: If true, this will also weaken the author's argument, but since option B weakens the author's argument most, this is not the correct option.

Thus, the correct option is B.
