Its the one about restrictions on teenage drivers. I picked A. It's a weakenX question. How does the fact that teenagers drive an older car weaken the fact that teenagers lack basic driving skills? Just because a car is less stable doesnt make it any less of a car.
I don't have the question in front of me, but I think I remember why.
It actually acts as an alternative reason for them being in more accidents (or fatal accidents, I forget). It is an alternative because perhaps instead of them lacking basic driving skills, they simply drive shittier cars which are therefore more dangerous, giving the illusion that they lack driving skills, when they don't, they just lack money to get a decent vehicle.
The choice states "Teenagers tend to drive older and less stable cars than other drivers." I still dont see how this equates to accidents. Like, how does a shitty car make one more liable to getting in an accident. It doesnt say " They drive older, therefore harder to function cars." It just says "less stable"
