The conclusion above follows logically if which one of the following is assumed?
(A) People who believe that others distrust them tend to trust others.
(B) Confidence in one’s own abilities gives one confidence in the trustworthiness of others.
(C) People who tend to trust others do not believe that others distrust them.
(D) People who are not threatened by difficult tasks tend to find such tasks challenging.
(E) People tend to distrust those who they believe lack self-confidence.

i think its C.

The logical relationship is People who believe others trust them also believe in their own abilities -> people who trust others see a difficult task as a challenge -> people who are confident/believe in their own abilities do so as well. This implies people who believe in their own abilities are people who trust others.

anc C.

look at the final statement "since this is precisely how people who are confident in their own abilities regard such tasks." u hv to find relation bet'n "people who are confident in their own abilities" and "think of a difficult task as a challenge rather than a threat" for the arg to follow logically. so the last part of the prev 2 statements are connected,so u hv to connect the first part of the two prev statements : "People who do not believe that others distrust them " and "people who tend to trust others ". this is done only in option C , in reverse order.

its very simple !!!

Hey All,

For your interest, I just gave an explanation of this question type in another post: cr-shy-adolescents-90490.html.

More or less, this is an assumption question that fits into the category "Logic Gap", in which a syllogism is missing one of its pieces (see the link above if you don't understand what that means).

When you see this pattern appear, really make an effort to predict the answer (the correct answer will always match your prediction; there isn't a lot of room to maneuver in logic gap questions).

Conclusion: People who trust others are confident
Premise: People who believe others trust them are confident
Assumption: People who believe others trust them also trust others

We can see this assumption coming as clearly as if the argument looked like this:

Conclusion: Whatever is behind that door is awesome.
Premise: Talking monkeys are awesome.

Obviously, the assumption would be: there are talking monkeys behind that door.

Hope that helps!

-t

I just read the passage once and I chose A as the answer. My answer is obviously wrong because I overlooked some points in the passage ( May be reading in between lines and assuming my own stuff..).
After checking the OA, I went back and again read the passage which made it clear. But I think I can not afford this kind of mistakes in the exam.

I thought ans C is already stated in the passage and D as the required assumption and I still feel that way..

This problem really blew my mind.

Can someone plug-in C as show how C can be the best fit in the argument?

Got it right in 3:38 Min.Thanks for a good question.
i Solved it in this way............
As the question says
People(do not believe that others distrust them)----> confident in their own abilities (1)
People(who tend to trust others)------> take difficult task as a challenge (2)
Conclusion=== > Confident people ---> take difficult task as challenge

Conclusion is the right part of (1) and (2)

So left part of (1) and (2) should be equal ,and that is what (c) is telling.

Consider KUDOS if it helped u in some way.

I did it in just a min and 1o sec.
It helps to scribble when things gets clouded in CR.

Here an example:
Attachment:

trust.jpg [ 11.42 KiB | Viewed 4199 times ]

(A) People who believe that others distrust them tend to trust others.
Ok..look at figure.. some [color=#BF0040]don't trust I...but I trust some.. can't produce in diagram..NO!.[/color]

(B) Confidence in one’s own abilities gives one confidence in the trustworthiness of others.
This is reverse of upper diagram. But, the flow is one-sided.can't conclude...NO!.

(C) People who tend to trust others do not believe that others distrust them.
Diagram says.."I trust others and others trust me". Thats wat given here(People who trust others, believe others trust them) and thats my answer. I wont go any further!

(D) People who are not threatened by difficult tasks tend to find such tasks challenging.
(E) People tend to distrust those who they believe lack self-confidence.

Hope, it helps!

I wouldn't agree to "not going further" statement on any question in GMAT verbal....there might be a better choice waiting in other options!!!
