In 1998 more citizens from the country of Monrovia migrated from Monrovia to neighboring Abstania than during any prior year. In 1998 the number of reported violent crimes in Abstania increased dramatically over 1997. The unavoidable conclusion is that Monrovians who migrated from Monrovia to Abstania were responsible for this increase. 

Which of the following statements, if true, would most seriously weaken the claim that Monrovians were responsible for the increase in violent crime in Abstania during 1998?

  • (b) In 1998 no Monrovians migrated from either Monrovia or Abstania to any country other than Monrovia or Abstania
  • (c) In 1998 the number of unreported violent crimes in Abstania increased as well.
  • (e) Each year more violent criminals are apprehended in Abstania than in Monrovia
  • (d) In 1998 fewer Monrovians migrated from Monrovia to Abstania than from Abstania to Monrovia
  • (a) During 1998 more violent crimes were reported in Abstania than in Monrovia
