I understand why C would be the correct answer. D also seemed like a good answer choice, and I am wondering why it is less effective at weakening the argument than C?

Good catch on the second read through. While I don't believe it is possible to delete, this is a good time to point out how important every word of an answer choice is. When you're stuck between two possible answers it's a good idea to make sure the words on the page actually match your understanding.
