One of the biggest threats to a company's productivity is absenteeism. Studies have shown that companies with in-house child care programs see fewer absences among their employees who are parents than companies without such programs. Therefore, many companies could boost their productivity by starting in-house child care programs.
Which of the following, if true, most weakens the above argument ?
A. Comanies that reiumburse outside child-care programs actually see less absenteeism among working parents than companies with in-house child-care programs.
B. In-house child-care programs create distractions for non-parents that can harm their productivity.
C. Absenteeism is not a serious problem for companies that impose harsh penalties on employees who miss work.
D.Studies have shown that employees with children are more likely than those without children to remain in the same job for more than 5 years.
E.Potential employees generally view companies with ub-house child-care programs as more desirable places to work than companies without such programs.
Conclusion: many companies could boost their productivity by starting in-house child care programs.
Anything that suggests that starting an in-house childcare program will hurt the overall productivity will be the answer. Don't you think B just does that ?
Well I do see it.. but my biggest weakness is when I see " If true" condition in the stem.. which makes me go out of the scope of the passage quite often. I immidiately tend to think that anything that undermines the argument could be the answer... So I got stuck between A and B..
