Mr. Janeck: I don’t believe Stevenson will win the election for governor. Few voters are willing to elect a businessman with no political experience to such a responsible public office.
Ms. Siuzdak: You’re wrong. The experience of running a major corporation is a valuable preparation for the task of running a state government.
M. Siuzdak’s response shows that she has interpreted Mr. Janeck’s remark to imply which of the following?
(A) Mr. Janeck considers Stevenson unqualified for the office of governor.
(B) No candidate without political experience has ever been elected governor of a state.
(C) Mr. Janeck believes that political leadership and business leadership are closely analogous.
(D) A career spent in the pursuit of profit can be an impediment to one’s ability to run a state government fairly.
(E) Voters generally overestimate the value of political experience when selecting a candidate.

Battle is between A & D

A is right choice here.

Hi SOURH7WK , can you explain why A win the battle against D ?
I think A is more obviously drawn from the premises but D often more tentative deeper reason for Ms. Siuzdak's response

Why can't the answer be E?

E clearly identifies the general perception among voters who consider POLITICAL exp. as the sole criteria in determining the worthiness of a candidate. Also,
her response conveys the same idea...
