The argument the first line: “A conflict diamond..to finance the military rebellion of groups…and internationally recognised government”. The conclusion suggests that human-cost for the war-torn countries is high.
Therefore, we must find a weakness in this statement.
A – Wrong
It does not weaken the argument that the human cost for the war torn countries is high.
B – Wrong
This statement does not mention anything about the sale of diamonds.
C – Correct
This weakens the argument as it states that sales of diamonds actually brings revenue for the governments. This suggests that the sale of diamonds is actually beneficial to the governments.
D – Wrong
This highlights an irrelevant significance of diamonds and is out of context.
