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.

It's b/w A and D.

(D) A career spent in the pursuit of profit can be an impediment to one’s ability to run a state government fairly.

Ms. Siuzdak: You’re wrong [means Mr. J's conculsion is wrong]. The experience of running a major corporation is a valuable preparation for the task of running a state government.

Here, experience and valuable preparation doesnt indicate any impediment to running the govt. Rather these point indicate that Mr. S thought Mr. J is not suitable to the task.

I feel that eliminating wrong answers may be the best way to go, leaving us with A as the best option out of the possible answers.

(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.
- Mr. J does not say this. He does imply that Many voters would not vote for a businessman with no political experience. What about a Lawyer with no political experience? This statement says No Candidate, regardless of previous work/career experience, has been elected without political experience.

(C) Mr. Janeck believes that political leadership and business leadership are closely analogous.
- Mr. J says the exact opposite

(D) A career spent in the pursuit of profit can be an impediment to one’s ability to run a state government fairly.
- This implies a bit much and could be argued that pursuit of profits could lead to a better run government or corruption. Either way out of scope.

(E) Voters generally overestimate the value of political experience when selecting a candidate.
- Mr. J does not speak for the voters, here he is giving his own reasoning and not that of general voters.

I would vote for A. Here is my reasoning:
(A) Mr. Janeck considers Stevenson unqualified for the office of governor.
Correct. J doubts the experience (a businessman with no political experience) and qualification (a businessman) of the Steven. Clearly, J is not convinced about the qualifications of Steven.
(B) No candidate without political experience has ever been elected governor of a state.
An exaggerated answer. It is difficult to make out such an assumption from the given argument. After negating it, we get "At least one candidate without..". The argument does not provide any such information.
(C) Mr. Janeck believes that political leadership and business leadership are closely analogous.
Opposite Answer. J believes that a businessman need political experience to take part in the election for governor.
(D) A career spent in the pursuit of profit can be an impediment to one’s ability to run a state government fairly.
Exaggerated/Shell Game Answer. J believes that businessman can run for the post of a governor provided he has the political experience.
(E) Voters generally overestimate the value of political experience when selecting a candidate.
Voters are able to estimate correctly the value of political experience. "Few voters are willing to elect a businessman..."
