well well well...

pls help me with an insight to rule out option C..it says "Employees who received low ratings were dissatisfied with the system"

If we negate it...employess who received low ratings ARE also satisfied with the system..doesnt it break the conclusion?

company's best-performing employees liked the system

Negating B will totally tear the argument ppart

So B it is
