I'm alright on these cause and effect questions.  I'm pretty sure the alternate cause, or the choice that claimed Pangea caused its own breakup was the correct weaken answer, for what its worth

The only evidence that proponents of the theory that plumes caused the break up of pangaea was based upon computer models that indicated it.  I chose the answer that the computer models did not include all of the relevant data because that was the basis of the theory.  There is no empirical evidence to suggest that plumes caused the break up just a computer model.

I see your point on the computer model, but it doesn't necessarily follow that the model is incorrect.  Doesn't the continent breaking itself up attack the conclusion most directly?

It depends on what the answer choice said. As I remember, the answer choice said that it contributed to the breaking up of Pangea

For what it's worth, I think I chose the computer models are incomplete as well.
