All social systems are based upon a division of economic roles. The values of a social system are embodied in the prestige accorded persons who fill various economic roles. It is therefore unsurprising that, for any social system, the introduction of labor-saving technology that makes certain economic roles obsolete will tend to undermine the values in that social system.

Which one of the following can most reasonably be concluded on the basis of the information above?

(A) Social systems will have unchanging values if they are shielded from technological advancement.
(B) No type of technology will fail to undermine the values in a social system.
(C) A social system whose values are not susceptible to change would not be one in which technology can eliminate economic roles.
(D) A technologically advanced society will place little value on the prestige associated with an economic role.
(E) A technological innovation that is implemented in a social system foreign to the one in which it was developed will tend to undermine the foreign social system.

OA is C.

LSAT question and not typical GMAT CR type questions which are mostly realistic as opposed to abstract.

Here is a link that will help you understand LSAT logic for this question. Hope this helps!! :-)

IMO " C".....SINCE for any social system, the introduction of labor-saving technology that makes certain economic roles obsolete will tend to undermine the values in that social system THEREFORE a social system whose values are not susceptible to change would not be one in which technology can eliminate economic roles.
