E???

The reason being that the president if he really were to follow the policy wouod think abt only experienced guy and not novices or young people. So E says the point that he is not following the policy completely as he is seprating funds for bonus for young employees.

E it is. It is the only choice that provides doubt about consistency of precident's claim.

clear E.. all others either support the president or are out of scope..

I hope the presidents of all our companies make similar policies of paying "fat" salaries to experienced folks like me... :twisted: no offence meant greenhorns...

A. agree to create a retirement bonus fund for experienced employees.
There's no evidence to prove he would do this.

B. agree to provide a fully paid 50-day vacation for famous professionals.
This choice seems irrelevant to the passage.

C. agree to cut by half people who work less than one year.
Again nothing in the passage suggests he wants/does not want to cut the work force

D. agree to deprive novices of weekends.

If he sticks to his guns there wouldn't be any novices anyway.

E. agree to create a special bonus fund for young employees.

This seems probable. Apart from the seasoned professionals, relatively younger lot (who are experienced as well) will probably have to be deprived of special bonuses because all the funds will be directed to servicing the seasoned campaigners..



Another amazing problem after the zoo/acquarium problem you posted.

I chose E by poE. None of the other choices was making sense.

I would rate it at medium level.

Eliminated A,B and D rightaway.

Was stuck between C and E for some time (about half a minute) but then found E bettter. There is a little assuption that all the young employees have NO experience. But such simple and logical assumptions are OK.

E is the only one that violates the rule that he will spend heavily on experienced employees, but not waste money on new ones.
