100% (01:33) correct
0% (00:00) wrong based on 1 sessions
. For next year, the Chefâ€™s Union has requested a 10 percent salary increase for each of its members, whereas the Hotel Managersâ€™ Union has requested only an 8 percent salary increase for each of its members. These facts demonstrate that the average dollar amount of the raises that the Chefsâ€™ Union has requested for next year is greater than that of the raises requested by the Hotel Managersâ€™ Union.
Which one of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument?
(A) The Chefsâ€™ Union has many more members than does the Hotel Managersâ€™ Union.
(B) The Chefsâ€™ Union is a more powerful union than is the Hotel Managersâ€™ Union and is therefore more likely to obtain the salary increases it requests
(C) The current salaries of the members of the Chefsâ€™ Union are, on average, higher than the current salaries of the members of the Hotel Managersâ€™ Union
(D) The average dollar amount of the raises that the members of the Chefsâ€™ Union received last year was equal to the average dollar amount of the raises that the members of the Hotel Managersâ€™ Union received
(E) The members of the Chefsâ€™ Union received salary increases of 10 percent in each of the last two years, while the members of the Hotel Managersâ€™ Union received salary increases of only 8 percent in each of the last two years
Will go with C on this one
The dollar amount will be higher only if the percentage of the av current salary for Chef's is higher
D is wrong. The average dollar amount raise last yr doesn't help to evaluate their percentage increases. For percentage increase we need to know the principal amount which is their individual salaries
