Objective

Weaken questions ask you to find an option that select an option that severely undercuts the key missing information.

Example:
Scholars believe that sequence dating, a process that used to measure the relative age difference between different periods, can be used to accurately date the age of an archaeological site. Using sequence dating, several notable archaeologists concluded that several pots recently found at a certain site in Egypt indicate that the site must have been pre-dynastic.

Which of the following, if true, would most seriously weaken the archaeologist’s conclusion above?

(A) Some of the pots appear to have been placed at the site well after the period in which they were made.

(B)The style of pot found was made over the course of many centuries, well into the dynastic, and post-dynastic period.
 

(C) Very few other archaeologists have stated that they agree with the conclusion that these pots prove the site was pre-dynastic.

(D) The pots have a particular handle that was only on pots made over a period of 50-150 years.

(E) Pots found at a nearby site have been proven to be from a completely different period.
