### HideShow timer Statistics

A light bulb company produces 2,000 light bulbs per week. The manager wants to ensure that standards of quality remain constant from week to week. The manager, therefore, claims that out of 2,000 light bulbs produced per week, 500 light bulbs are rejected.
Of the following, the best criticism of the managerâ€™s plan is that the plan assumes that
(A) light bulb manufacturers cannot accept all light bulbs that produced
(B) the overall quality of the light bulbs would not be improved if the total number of light bulbs produced were reduced
(C) each light bulb that is reviewed is worthy of being reviewed
(D) it is difficult to judge the quality of a light bulb
(E) the 1,500 light bulbs that are accepted will be of the same quality from week to week

The key is the bold part.
Let's say: in order for the manager's claim to be correct, those 1,500 light bulbs remained after the selection must meet the requirement cited in the bold part -----> E is the manager's assumption.

Yes it should be E

The manager wants to ensure that standards of quality remain constant from week to week.

While choosing between such choices you should pick the choices which are more closer to the argument . Most of the time the right answers will use same or similar wording.

quality remain constant from week to week From the stem.
same quality from week to week From the choice.
