9. In 1990 all of the people who applied for a job at
Evco also applied for a job at Radeco, and Evco
and Radeco each offered jobs to half of these appli-
cants. Therefore, every one of these applicants must
have been offered a job in 1990.

The argument above is based on which of the
following assumptions about these job applicants?
(A) All of the applicants were very well qualified for
a job at either Evco or Radeco.
(B) All of the applicants accepted a job at either
(C) None of the applicants was offered a job by
(D) None of the applicants had applied for jobs at
places other than Evco and Radeco.

Hi hallelujah1234 & ndidi04,

What the hell is wrong with you people. Why dont you read all the choices properly. The argument is talking about job offers and not job acceptence.
Read C again and evaluate it with B. B has to be wrong. If all the applicant accepted either at E and R then it is possible that E might offered job to 80 people (out of 100 ) and R might have offered job to 20 people. I hope you are not going through the storm created by batliwala in a hurry.

This is like denial of "enough time to solve the Q" attack by batliwala

Look at C again.

Anand.

Hey anandnk,

You are right. I had considered C but I forgot why I chose to accept it. I did not reread the argument. C is indeed the best choice. If D and N offered jobs to half the applicants, the arguments assumes that applicants went with either N or D but not both.

Thanks for the correction.
