Bonuses at DSR Industries cannot be awarded unless profits exceed a ten percent
return on stock- holders’ investments in the company. Higher profits mean
higher bonuses. Therefore, bonuses in a year of general economic recession will
be considerably lower than bonuses in a year of peak profits at DSR.

The conclusion above depends on the assumption that

(A) the firm will have relatively low profits in recession years
(B) the amount represented by a ten percent return on stockholders’
investments in the company will increase from year to year
(C) profits rarely exceed a ten percent return on stockholders’ investments in
the company
(D) profits in excess of a ten percent return on stockholders’ investments in the
company are all distributed in the form of bonuses
(E) bonuses at DSR never drop to zero

Has to Be A
An easy one, served as a refresher for the brain after solving many 700 level questions
