A confidential survey revealed that 75% of the employees of a Company P are dissatisfied with their jobs. However, an investigation into working confitions at the company showed nothing uncommonly bad. Therefore, Company P's consulting firm concluded that the employee's dissatisfaction must result from an unusually high incidence of psychological problems on their part.



Each of the following, if true, casts doubt on the consulting firm's conclusion EXCEPT:



A) In the investigation of working conditions, no account was taken of the fact that for the past year many Company P employees worked on a joint venture with Company O, at Company O's facilities.

B)Workers in many companies are dissatisfied although there are no apperent problems with their working conditions.

C)The consulting firm's conception of what constitutes uncommonly bad working conditions is not identical to that of Company P's employees.

D)The reason given by Company P's employees for their dissatifaction varied greatly from employee to employee.

E)A battery of sets performed on COmpany P's employees one month ago revealed no significant psychological stresses or problems.


OA will be revealed later :)

I narrowed down the choices to B and D. A, C and E can be discarded as they serve to increase the doubt on the consulting firm's conclusion.

D states that the reasons for the worker's dissatisfaction differs from one another.

B states that workers did not find any apparent problems with their working conditions, but they may have problems with some other aspect of the company.

I think I will go with D, because, it seems to hint that the worker's problems are more personal. I could be wrong, but I am sure the answer is either B or D.
