The committee member’s argument conforms most closely to which one of the following principles?
(A) No one who would be barred from important jobs in an organization should lead that organization.
(E) No one who cannot command a missile wing should be at the top of the military’s chain of command. => Cannot is too extreme. And the argument does not mentioned whether the ability to command or not.

OA to come.


My confusing is only between A and E. I chose E, but I found my problem here

I have narrowed down to A & C but chosen A because the language in C is extreme.

Well the statement says

"We should not vote to put at the top of the military’s chain of command an individual whose history of excessive drinking is such that ....".

A) Talks about barring, which is represented as an example against result of excessive drinking [and not the core reason], so cannot be considered

D sounds perfectly aligned with the statement discussed above.

The committee member’s argument conforms most closely to which one of the following principles?
(A) No one who would be barred from important jobs in an organization should lead that organization.
(B) Whoever leads an organization must have served at every level in the organization.
(C) Whoever leads an organization must be qualified to hold each important job in the organization.
(D) No one who drinks excessively should hold a leadership position any where along the military’s chain of command.
(E) No one who cannot command a missile wing should be at the top of the military’s chain of command.

OA to come.


My answer is A.
(A) No one who would be barred from important jobs in an organization should lead that organization.

i was struck between a and c
but failed to consider important words

when we have to make between two options we should recheck the conclusion


here should we select the answer which is nearest simulant of the argument.. a bit confused can anyone please clarify..
