A law requiring companies to offer employees unpaid time off to care for their children will harm the economic competitiveness of our nation’s businesses. Companies must be free to set their own employment policies without mandated parental-leave regulations.
Which of the following, if true, would most seriously weaken the conclusion of the argument above?

(A) A parental-leave law will serve to strengthen the family as a social institution in this country.
(B) Many businesses in this country already offer employees some form of parental leave.
(C) Some of the countries with the most economically competitive businesses have strong parental-leave regulations.
(D) Only companies with one hundred or more employees would be subject to the proposed parental-leave law.
(E) In most polls, a majority of citizens say they favor passage of a parental-leave law.

IMO C, in that case the parental regulation does not affect the economic competetiveness..

waving between C and E.

Quote:
(C) Some of the countries with the most economically competitive businesses have strong parental-leave regulations.
well, only some countries(with strong law) are competitive out of most.

Quote:
(E) In most polls, a majority of citizens say they favor passage of a parental-leave law.
citizens are OK(more favour) with the strong law. even if the law is liberal and they should be OK(not sure of favour) too. hence they do work happily which helps competitive business.


I will go for E.

why not B for this one ? C says some countries, some means more than one , if it said most countries i would say C but only a few and if it hurts others then its not good

B is better because if many business are currently offering this and it has done no harm therefore it wont do any harm if all do this . the difference is some and many . . .

C

The conclusion is that a company cannot be economically competitive if said company offers parental leave. Answer choice C states that some of the world's most economically competitive companies offer parental leave, which strengthens the argument. Therefore, C is correct.
