I would have definitely gone with A if 'unqualified' was not the word. unqualified is too strong a word. Ms Siuzdak does not feel Mr Janeck thinks something disqualifies him from contesting for the office. Nothing disqualifies him. Its just that voters will feel he is incompetent to run a state


But I guess the OA is A. :|




These are two different words:

Unqualified - One does not have the required qualifications e.g. required education, experience etc. One could participate say, in elections, even if people think one is unqualified if there are no rules requiring particular qualification.

Disqualified - One did not stick to the rules of the game and hence got disqualified e.g. for doping or slandering etc. One cannot participate after getting disqualified.

This question uses the word 'unqualified'.

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.

The argument talks about 2 people arguing about a candidate. Janeck says that lack of political experience is a problem for Stevenson. Voters would not vote for such a person. Siuzdak says that running a corp is a training ground for running a govt

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

My understanding is that Siuzdak thinks that Janeck is overestimating lack of political experience as a weak link. Hence I think it should be E.

Aha! Karishma explained it very well..thanks!

It seems the voters are not part of the discussion for Siuzdak. So A is correct.
