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.

Can someone please tell me what is wrong with E?

My reasoning is:
since most of the applicants were qualified for the summer jobs, there were not enough jobs.

'Many' here does not imply that 'most' of those who applied for summer jobs were considered qualified. IMHO.

Yea, it's a % versus number problem.

1,000,000 qualified applicants = many qualified, but it's not most if there were 1,000,000,000,000 applicants.

B, D and E are straight out. E is out because many and not most applicants were considered qualified.
C is directly stated in the passage.

That leaves A.
