I do understand the question stem and how correct answer choice d is weaken except, but I dont understand how rest of the four choices wither weaken the argument? Is it because they offer an alternative cause to the effect than the stated cause in the argument

Hello aisha karim,

Could you please give me the year and month of the LSAT, and what section it is in, for this problem? Thank you,

Hope this helps,
David

Hello aisha karim,

Thanks! Sometimes books have different editions, etc. ...

Anyway, answer A shows that the cars are the problem, not the teenagers' skills; answer B shows that lack of belts and straps is the problem, not driving skills; answer C shows that the amount of mileage is the problem, not driving skills; and answer E shows that the number of passengers is the problem, not driving skills.
So yes, you could call all of those alternate causes.

Hope this helps,
David
