18. Manager: Accounting and Billing are located right
next to each other and the two depart-
ments do similar kinds of work; yet
expenditures for clerical supplies charged
to Billing are much higher. Is Billing
wasting supplies?
Head of Billing: Not at all.

Which of the following, if true, best supports the
position of the Head of Billing?
(A) There are more staff members in Accounting
than in Billing.
(B) Two years ago, expenditures in Accounting for
clerical supplies were the same as were expen-
ditures that year in Billing for clerical supplies.
(C) The work of Billing now requires a wider vari-
ety of clerical supplies than it did in the past.
(D) Some of the paper-and-pencil work of both
Accounting and Billing has been replaced by
work done on computers.
(E) Members of Accounting found the clerical-
supplies cabinet of Billing more convenient to
go to for supplies than their own depart-
ment's cabinet.

E it is. A says the exact opposite of what you need to justify. A says there are more accounting clerks in accounting so accounting should have more supply expenses. However, billing is incurring more expenses. The only answer that would explain how billing could be incurring more expenses for the supplies is because accounting staff goes to billing department for supplies and E says that

Oops, I didn't read the argument well. I was of the opinion that Accounting, instead of Billing, had more expenditures for clerical supplies.
