Dear Applicant:
Thank you for your application. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer you a position in our local government office for the summer. As you know, funding for summer jobs is limited, and it is impossible for us to offer jobs to all those who want them. Consequently, we are forced to reject many highly qualified applicants.
Which of the following can be inferred from the letter?
(A) The number of applicants for summer jobs in the government office exceeded the number of summer jobs available.
(B) The applicant who received the letter was considered highly qualified.
(C) Very little funding was available for summer jobs in the government office.
(D) The application of the person who received the letter was considered carefully before being rejected.
(E) Most of those who applied for summer jobs were considered qualified for the available positions.

could you guys give reasons for choosing a particular choice and also for not choosing the rest.

thanks

A

Argument says:
1. We rejected many applicants who were highly qualified
2. Funding for summer jobs is limited
3. Position not offered to this particular applicant

A. Thats why applications are getting rejected.
B. Can not be inferred. He may be low qualified. If we say that Wahrton also rejects application of high GMAT scores doesn't mean that all the people there are high GMAT scorers.
C. Funding is limited may be little or not.
D. Very generic
E. Same as B.

I`ve seen a near perfect clone of this CR but it was a college admissions rejection letter.
