A company is considering changing its policy concerning daily working hours. Currently, this company requires all employees to arrive at work at 8 a.m. The proposed policy would permit each employee to decide when to arriveâ€”from as early as 6 a.m. to as late as 11 a.m.
The adoption of this policy would be most likely to decrease employeesâ€™ productivity if the employeesâ€™ job functions required them to
(A) work without interruption from other employees (B) consult at least once a day with employees from other companies (C) submit their work for a supervisorâ€™s eventual approval (D) interact frequently with each other throughout the entire workday (E) undertake projects that take several days to complete
A is out because employees are not as likely to be interrupted if they work staggered work hours
B is also out because there would be some point in the day which they could reach employees from other companies at least once
C is out because they could submit work anytime
E is out because the project would still take days to complete whether they started at 6 or 9 in the morning.

@grakesh - Option B is incorrect because the company (suppose A)mentioned in premise restricts the timings of company A only and not on the employees of other companies. So, any worker of company A, who need to interact with employees of other companies, can do so in the timings suitable for the employees of other companies. Hope it helps _________________
