Can someone please explain why C is incorrect? The conclusion of the argument appears to be "it is likely that the melting of the ice contributed to these earthquakes" (i.e. the earthquakes in Sweden). I thought a way to strengthen a cause and effect argument is to show a case with the same cause and same effect, which seems to kind of happen in C. Answer choice D seems to almost weaken the argument to me by showing an alternate cause for the earthquakes (i.e. the cracks in the earth's crust cause the earthquakes).
