Which one... weakens?a) Many of the books published a century ago were of low literary quality.b) On average, people who lived a century ago had considerably less leisure time than we do today.c) The number of books sold today is larger than it was a century ago.d) On the average, books today cost slightly less in relation to other goods than they did a century ago.e) One of the popular diversions of a century ago was horse racing.I consistently choose letter E, which I'm sure is a sucker choice, but I don't like B which is the credited response.
