BOOKMARKED
Analyst: Creative professionals, such as clothing designers, graphic designers, and decorators, often have very poor managerial skills and do not succeed when they try to run their own businesses. In fact, most of these creative types are less skilled in business than is the average white-collar professional who does not work in a creative field. Generally, creative talent and business acumen rarely go hand in hand.

If the analyst's argument is taken as true, which of the following statements can properly be concluded?

A) No successful business people are creative.
B) Some creative types are not less skilled at business than is the average white-collar worker who is not creative.
C) Creativity precludes success in business.
D) Any white-collar worker who is not creative is more successful in business than any creative professional.
E) Business is not a creative endeavor.

Hi,

the line"In fact, most of these creative types are less skilled in business than is the average white-collar professional who does not work in a creative field" says it all...It eliminates A and D(which was contender).
The argument says most not "ALL". So Choice D can be crossed. C is out of scope for me.

PS: Conclusion question answer choices shouldnt be extreme first of all(90%).But guys, be sure to check it once.

OA is B but is it that the average white-collar worker who does not work in a creative field can still be creative . So I find B not really convincing.

I agree with vad3tha.... a white collar professional working in non creative field can still be creative....
option should have been that "Some creative types are not less skilled at business than is the average white-collar worker who does not work in a creative field"

Am I the only one, who thinks that MGMAT CR's are not GMAT like...
I prefer the MGMAT SC Part which is more GMAT like...
