Which of the following, if true concerning the period during which the increase occurred, most seriously weakens the argument above?

(A) A number of job categories, excluded from the jurisdiction of OSHA in the legislation originally establishing the agency, have continued to be outside OSHA's jurisdiction.
(B) OSHA has been assigned a greater number of kinds of workplace activities to monitor.
(C) There has been an increase in the total number of people at work, and the ratio of work-related deaths and injuries to size of work force has fallen in OSHA-supervised occupations
(D) Regulations issued by OSHA have met with political criticism from elected officials and the mass media.
(E) The increase in job-related accidents has occurred mainly in a single job category, whereas the number of job-related accidents has remained approximately constant in other categories.
