    Default the meaning of the sentence

    M: This picnic may need to be moved inside.
    W: Yeah, the weather is not cooperating this time around as it was last year.
    Q: What does the woman mean?


    (A) Last year was also bad.
    (B) People are not cooperating as well as last year.
    (C) The picnic is being spoiled by the weather.
    (D) The weather is not as good as it was the previous year.


    I can't decide betwenn (c) and (d).
    What a horrible question! ( Am I the only one who feel this way?)

    Please help me.

    (D) The weather is not as good as it was the previous year.

    Note, the question is, what does the woman mean. She doesn't mention the picnic, so C) is out.

    Does that help?
