A company's personnel director surveyed employees
about their satisfaction with the company's system
for awarding employee performance ratings. The
survey data indicated that employees who received
high ratings were very satisfied with the system. The
personnel director concluded from these data that
the company's best-performing employees liked the
system.

The personnel director's conclusion assumes which
of the following?

(A) No other performance rating system is as good
as the current system.
(B) The company's best-performing employees
received high ratings.
(C) Employees who received low ratings were
dissatisfied with the system.
(D) Employees who receive high ratings from a
performance-rating system will like that system.
(E) The company's best-performing employees were
motivated to perform well by the knowledge
that they would receive performance ratings.

i cant choose between choice b and d.

A is out of scope.
C is also out of scope (we don;t know anything about low performing employees)
D just restates a premise. The survey data indicated that employees who received high ratings were very satisfied with the system.
E is irrelevant. Whether the employees were motivated or not does not matter to us.

The answer has to be B. The key is that the premise talks about the high ratings while the conclusion talks about the perfomance.

Just as kripalkavi explained, D just restates the fact written in the argument....

One more for B.

Key is for the answer to draw on the two pieces of the data in the statement 1) The survey data indicated that employees who received
high ratings were very satisfied with the system. 2) The
personnel director concluded from these data that
the company's best-performing employees liked the
system.

B does this


(B) The company's best-performing employees
received high ratings

No indication of any proposed change in the current rating system. So "will" in D is irrelevant.

Direct B

How can one be sure that the ratings are appropriate and only the best employees got the highest ratings? Anybody who gets high rankings will be satisfied with the system. Won't you? :wink:
