In the effort to fire a Civil Service employee, his or her manager may have to spend up to $100,000 of tax money. Since Civil Service employees know how hard it is to fire them, they tend to loaf. This explains in large part why the government is so inefficient.
It can be properly inferred on the basis of the statements above that the author believes which of the following?
I. Too much job security can have a negative influence on workers.
II. More government workers should be fired.
III.Most government workers are Civil Service employees.
(A) I only
(B) I and III only
(C) II only
(D) I, II, and III
(E) III only
B here as well - I and III because in the first part of the premise we find out how expensive it can be to fire a civil service employee, which in fact causes them to slack since the government is in no way benefiting from firing them - I, and then III stems from the last sentence - largely is the key word here, we can infer that most governement employees are civil service since the government is so ineficient because the civil service employees are such slackers. i wish i had that kinda job security ;]
but I'm not totally able to eliminate A . can we totally infer III..
'coz the question statement reads 'explains in large part why the government is so inefficient'. Thia might not necessarily mean most of the govt employees are civil servants. there could also be a case where in civil servants, though few in number, might be highly inefficient and hence, are responsible for the govt's inefficiency.
I also chose B. Find it difficult to agree with OA. But the only reason why i'll leave out III is the use of "most government workers". Ideally it should have been all government workers or just government workers.
