In recent years, unions have begun to include in their demands at the
collective bargaining table requests for contract provisions which
give labor an active voice in determining the goals of a corporation.
Although it cannot be denied that labor leaders are highly skilled
administrators, it must be recognized that their primary loyalty is
and must remain to their membership, not to the corporation. Thus,
labor participation in corporate management decisions makes about as
much sense as __________.
Which of the following represents the best continuation of the
passage?
1. allowing inmates to make decisions about prison security
2. a senior field officer asking the advice of a junior officer on a
question of tactics
3. a university's asking the opinion of the student body on the
scheduling of courses
4. Chicago's mayor inviting the state legislators for a ride on the
city's subway system
5. the members of a church congregation discussing theology with the
minister

PLEASE EXPLAIN THE BEST WAY TO APPROACH THESE TYPE OF Q'S


Lets read the argument first
Evidence : In recent years, unions have begun to include in their demands at the
collective bargaining table requests for contract provisions which
give labor an active voice in determining the goals of a corporation.

Premise : Although it cannot be denied that labor leaders are highly skilled administrators, it must be recognized that their primary loyalty is and must remain to their membership, not to the corporation

Conclution : Thus,
labor participation in corporate management decisions makes about as
much sense as --------

it means the labor participation does not make genuine sense for company's progress since their loyalty is towards their membership rather than towards company and wont think about benefiting the company.
hence choose the similar scenario where decision is made by X for Y when X does not think good for Y or is not loyal to Y.
Consider the options now :

1. allowing inmates to make decisions about prison security -> this is correct inmates dont want security to be tight and are given powers to take the decision related to security hence this will not be a genuinely correct decision
2. a senior field officer asking the advice of a junior officer on a
question of tactics -> this is incorrect since junior officers are loyal to scenior
3. a university's asking the opinion of the student body on the
scheduling of courses -> this is not correct since students will be loyal to school
4. Chicago's mayor inviting the state legislators for a ride on the
city's subway system -> irrelevant
5. the members of a church congregation discussing theology with the minister -> irrelevant since minister does not oppose theology
