(N/A)

Question Stats:

33% (02:23) correct 67% (02:11) wrong based on 3 sessions
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.

IMO A

A) Mr. Janeck considers Stevenson unqualified for the office of governor. -- Kept as an option
(B) No candidate without political experience has ever been elected governor of a state. -- Out of scope
(C) Mr. Janeck believes that political leadership and business leadership are closely analogous. -- No mention of leadership
(D) A career spent in the pursuit of profit can be an impediment to one’s ability to run a state government fairly. -- Too broad
(E) Voters generally overestimate the value of political experience when selecting a candidate. -- Too broad and Out of scope

IMO A also. I'm not sure how you got B, homie. I really don't feel like any of these answers are clean. By a stretch it could be D but IMO the best answer is A.

I think (B) infers way too far. It's not mentioned, nor supported by what Mr. Jareck claimed.
I, too, went with (A).

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.... which implies that Mr. Janeck considers Stevenson unqualified for the office of governor.
