Mr. Janeck: I donâ€™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: Youâ€™re wrong. The experience of running a major corporation is a valuable preparation for the task of running a state government.
M. Siuzdakâ€™s response shows that she has interpreted Mr. Janeckâ€™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 oneâ€™s ability to run a state government fairly.
(E) Voters generally overestimate the value of political experience when selecting a candidate.
Mr. Janeck is really saying he doesn't think VOTERS will consider business experience to be equivalent to political experience. Mr. Janeck never stated that Stevenson was unqualified in his opinion; he was merely observing that many voters might think him unqualified.
But from the way Ms. Siuzdak replies, she seems to have missed Mr. Janeck's point, because her response was aimed at convincing Mr. Jaceck that business experience is relevant for someone running for office. In other words, she's saying that he IS qualified, because of his business experience.
So the answer is A.
C is a 180. Ms. Siuzdak clearly can't believe that Mr. Janeck considers business experience to be the same as political experience, because her response is aimed at convincing him that this is true. She wouldn't be trying to convince him if she thought he already believed it.
