#召唤陪练狮# A study of ticket sales at a summer theater festival found that people who bought tickets to individual plays had a no-show rate of less than 1 percent, while those who paid in advance for all ten plays being performed that summer had a no-show rate of nearly 30 percent. This may be at least in part because the greater the awareness customers retain about the cost of an item, the more likely they are to use it. 

Which of the following would, if true, best serve as an alternative explanation of the results of the study? 

A The price per ticket was slightly cheaper for those who bought all ten tickets in advance. 
B Many people who attended the theater festival believed strongly that they should support it financially. 
C Those who attended all ten plays became eligible for a partial refund. 
D Usually, people who bought tickets to individual plays did so immediately prior to each performance that they attended. 
E People who arrived just before the performance began could not be assured of obtaining seats in a preferred location. 

我想问这道题的问题说serve as an alternative explanation这是削弱题吗?我怎么觉得是说提出与题中的观点一致的另外一种说法而已呢?

同学你好~ 题目有两个要注意的点,第一个是 alternative explanation 的意思,第二个是 the results of the study 指的是什么。
The results of the study 是指题干的第一句(A study...found...),最后一句是针对 results 给出的结论。
题目要求我们针对 results 给出一个 alternative explanation (二者选一的、替代性的的解释),所以说明要选的答案实际上与原结论的观点不一致,即推翻/削弱了原结论。
注意不要把 results 和题干给出的结论弄混了。
