If they claim a minimum expense and a minimum # of employees, then the discovery of new expenses will be justifiable because only minimums were stated. _________________ Best Regards, Paul Manager Joined: 29 Aug 2003 Posts: 240 Location: MI Followers: 1 Kudos [?]: 26 [0], given: 0 [#permalink] ### Show Tags 21 Jan 2004, 17:12 Paul wrote: B.

But how can you be sure that the newly discovered vouchers don't change the lower limits ???? What if 50 more were discovered which had claims of only$20.00 ???

The point is that it is the one which is LEAST likely to be weakened if new expenses are to be discovered because of the reasons I previously mentioned. In C however, if the expenses were AT MOST 3000$, then how can they justify an increase in expenses? IMO, it will be more difficult as B to justify such increases in expenses. However, I may also be wrong... _________________ Best Regards, Paul SVP Joined: 30 Oct 2003 Posts: 1793 Location: NewJersey USA Followers: 5 Kudos [?]: 97 [0], given: 0 [#permalink] ### Show Tags 21 Jan 2004, 17:27 My bet is on B. Atleast 25 employees are there and they claimed atleast some amount. So few more vouchers can account for few more employees and the amount can account for some more than$35,000
