(B)10 percent of the office employees are less productive working from home than working in their office.
(C)At least 15 percent of the office employees do not define productivity exclusively in terms of the number of hours worked.

Neither choice seems very plausible but among these...lets say A

Nice one

would choose C ( closer is A)

A. Looking at this option, it doesnt look like comparison between same office employees is done

B over 90% means 92% or so...than how can exactly 10% be less productive

D. we have info about "less than one hour" D specifies exactly one hour...

E. Option has "Some"...but we know that "over 90% " claimed to be productive

Yes, it should be C. This is really just a Venn diagram question - we know 25% of a certain group work less than an hour per day, and that more than 90% of the same group say they are more productive from home. Well those percentages add to more than 100%, so these two groups need to overlap somehow - it must be that at least 90+25-100 = 15% of these people *both* work less than an hour per day and claim to be more productive. Answer choice C follows from here.

And there's something wrong with the wording of the stem (it seems like a few words are missing), but I gather everyone has understood what it's trying to say.
