### HideShow timer Statistics

According to reports provided by large Canadian corporations, the total number of university graduates applying for jobs in those corporations has decreased over the last five years. Therefore, it can be concluded that fewer graduates of Canadian universities are seeking career opportunities in large Canadian corporations now than five years ago.

Each of the following, if true, weakens the argument EXCEPT:
(A)The number of graduates of foreign universities who applied for jobs in large Canadian corporations has significantly decreased over the last five years.
(B)The majority of those who apply for jobs in large Canadian corporations do not get hired because of their low qualifications.
(C)Many large Canadian corporations no longer report the number of university graduates who apply to them for jobs.
(D)Some large Canadian corporations no longer provide information about university graduates who apply for part-time or freelance jobs.
(E)Surveys conducted by Canadian universities over the last five years indicated that the number of graduates who would like to start their careers in one of the large Canadian corporations has been increasing.

it is B.

CONCLUSION:fewer graduates of Canadian universities are seeking career opportunities in large Canadian corporations now than five years ago.

it is talking about ALL people who apply for jobs==>so this is kind of unclear situation as we dont know how many canadian university graduates are there.

(A)The number of graduates of foreign universities who applied for jobs in large Canadian corporations has significantly decreased over the last five years.==>WRONG.
-so it says that decrease is because of fewer foreign students.hence weakens.
(B)The majority of those who apply for jobs in large Canadian corporations do not get hired because of their low qualifications.
correct
(C)Many large Canadian corporations no longer report the number of university graduates who apply to them for jobs.
WRONG.
-WEAKENS because...we dont have sufficient data to compare.
(D)Some large Canadian corporations no longer provide information about university graduates who apply for part-time or freelance jobs.
WRONG.
-SAME AS C.
(E)Surveys conducted by Canadian universities over the last five years indicated that the number of graduates who would like to start their careers in one of the large Canadian corporations has been increasing.
WRONG.

Hence B.

How does 'A' weaken the argument?

A weakens the argument because it implies that the decrease of the total number of students applying in large corporation is due to fewer FOREIGN students rather than fewer CANADIAN students
