How does B strengthen here? having a good relationship in the past with business leaders doesn't mean that this guy will be the best choice for the job. What kind of "good relations" we are talking about... not really specific... may be they were buddies drinking beer... does that qualify him to be the best choice? No...

Thanks for the explanation U2lover.

I also fell into the B trap. I thought it was a good one since it talked about business and labor..

OA is E

(A) The new council must have the support of the nation’s labor leaders if it is to succeed.

does he have that support? do we know? no... then how does this makes him the best choice?

I'll go with E here. It's the only one that focuses in on the main strength detailed in the passage.

messed this one big time. Selected (C) as I was trying to bring a choice that uniquely identified his position for the council. Wrong approach.

Taking a similar line of reasoning as above, could you not argue for E, that just b/c one has been a leader of a labour union, this doen't necesitate that he/she understands the needs and problems of labor?

I also chose B with the same line of reasoning used by jikho.
Is the OA really E?
B explains that if he had good relations with the business leaders before, then probably he's sensible enough to look at both sides in dealing with problems between two sectors...
