Any ideas on this one?

Of those person who became teachers in 1968 and who later left the profession, 30 percent today earn salaries above $35,000 a year: of those who became teachers in 1968 and have remained in the profession, only 15 percent today earn salaries above $35,000 a year. These figures indicate how underpaid teachers are today.

The argument above depends on which of the following assumptions about the persons for whom statistics are cited?

(A) At least one-third of the group of persons who have remained in teaching would today be earning more than $35,000 a year if they had left teaching.
(B) The group of persons who left teaching and the group who did not are comparable in terms of factors that determine how much people outside the teaching profession are paid.
(C) Most of those persons who left teaching did so entirely because of the low salaries teachers earn.
(D) As a group, those persons who have remained in teaching are abler and more dedicated than the group of persons who left teaching.
(E) The group of persons who left teaching and who today earn more than $35,000 a year were more capable teachers than the group who remained in the profession.

C, D, E easily rejected....

A is not necessarily true..

I go with B, to determine if someone is overpaid or underpaid..B should be true...

I would say it is A.

This is because the argument assumes that the reason that a third of the people who left the teaching profession are able to earn a higher salary is because they left an underpaid profession. So a third of all people who leave the profession should be able to earn the high salaries.

I think the answer is A. The assumption is that the two groups are similar. In other words: the people in the two groups are capable to make more than US$ 35,000 if they are not teachers
A says that at least 33% of the people who have remained in teaching are capable to make more than US$ 35,000 in other jobs so do is similiar to the 30% of the other group
