I picked A when going through this, and can see why B weakens this but am wondering why A is wrong.
It still weakens the argument, if they require deftness that an amateur has not developed- its he exodus actually the the right choice?
Is the issue with answer A rooted in that it requires additional extrapolation to weaken the argument?

Thanks!

Choice (A) tells us that there is a special consideration that we need to take into account when judging some types of telescopes. However, this answer choice does not tell us whether this special consideration applies to the Exodus telescope, the Newtonian telescope, or neither. In this way, you are right that answer choice (A) would require more information to weaken the conclusion: we would need it to say that only the Exodus requires this difficult, delicate adjustment.
