ARCO, I guess-- swiped it from elsewhere on the net.

This too is a pretty easy question, IMO. Try it again.

B. 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.

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...

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
