My apologies if this has already been posted.

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.

Why isn't it C? OA to come...

I think A is the answer. Janeck thinks that political experience is a prerequisite for this particular office.

B is wrong because we're are talking about one candidate.

C is wrong because if Janeck believes that the two are closely related than he would think that the candidate would win the election.

D is really close but when you include fairly at the end it messes up the statement.

E doesn't address the business side of the candidate.

I'd have to go with A.

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.

OMG, can you all believe that I didn't even see the word "businessman"?! Ahh!! What is happening?!

Thanks for your input, everyone! You guys are so awesome, and funny too. I busted up at the "help me God" line. It helps to know that I'm not alone. =)

OA is A. Great work!

Nakib, don't stress. You'll get it. Just hang out here with all of us poor schlubs struggling through the same annoying grammar rules, and we'll work it out somehow.

Anyway I think god's a bit busy these days. Something about wars, droughts, tsunamis and hurricanes, ya know... I doubt he's got much time to worry about our GMAT scores. :P
