Mannis Corporation's archival records are stored in an obsolete format that is accessible only by its current computer system; thus they are inaccessible when that system is not functioning properly. In order to avoid the possibility of losing access to their archival records in the case of computer malfunction. Mannis plans to replace its current computer system with a new system that stores records in a format that is accessible to several different systems.

The answer to which of the following questions would be most helpful in evaluating the effectiveness of the plan as a means of retaining access to the archival records?
A Will the new computer system require fewer operators than the current system requires?
B Has Mannis Corporation always stored its archival records in a computerized format?
C Will the new computer system that Mannis plans ensure greater security for the records stored than does Mannis' current system?
D Will Mannis' current collection of archival records be readily transferable to the new computer system?
E Will the new computer system be able to perform many more tasks than the current system is able to perform?

A Will the new computer system require fewer operators than the current system requires?
>> Except the accessability, other things are not discussed in passage and so not necessary.
B Has Mannis Corporation always stored its archival records in a computerized format?
>> This contradicts with statement "archival records are stored in an obsolete format that is accessible only by its current computer system"
C Will the new computer system that Mannis plans ensure greater security for the records stored than does Mannis' current system?
>> Security is not discussed in the passage
D Will Mannis' current collection of archival records be readily transferable to the new computer system?
>> Yes. This will evaluate the effectiveness of the plan. Because of the archival records are not readily transfarrable, then possibility of losing access to their archival records in the case of computer malfunction will continue until the new system is available.
E Will the new computer system be able to perform many more tasks than the current system is able to perform?
>> Except the accessability, other things are not discussed in passage and so not necessary.

My answer is D.
