Political Advertisement:

Mayor Delmont’s critics complain about the jobs that were lost in the city under Delmont’s leadership. Yet the fact is that not only were more jobs created than were eliminated, but the average pay for these new jobs has been higher than the average pay for jobs citywide every year since Delmont took office. So there can be no question that throughout Delmont’s tenure the average paycheck in this city has been getting steadily bigger.

Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument in the advertisement?

A. The average pay for jobs created in the city during the past three years was higher than the average pay for jobs created in the city earlier in Mayor Delmont’s tenure.
B. Average pay in the city was at a ten-year low when Mayor Delmont took office.
C. Some of the jobs created in the city during Mayor Delmont’s tenure have in the meantime been eliminated again.
D. The average pay for jobs eliminated in the city during Mayor Delmont’s tenure has been roughly equal every year to the average pay for jobs citywide.
E. The average pay for jobs in the city is currently higher than it is for jobs in the suburbs surrounding the city.

I choose answer A.
A corroborates the claim in the advertisement.

I go with the choice D.

The argument says that the average pay for the new jobs is increasing. The argument can be strengthen by mentioning that the avg pay of lost jobs is either decreasing or no change.

And how do we know about the average pay of the newly created job?

From the argument
"the average pay for these new jobs has been higher than the average pay for jobs citywide every year since Delmont took office"

The conclusion from the argument is :
So there can be no question that throughout Delmont’s tenure the average paycheck in this city has been getting steadily bigger.

This is supported in one of the arguments that the avg pay of new jobs is increasing. This leaves an open question that even the avg pay of lost jobs might be increasing.......Hence if we contradict, it would further strengthen the argument in support of Delmont.

The entire argument is given as a an advertisement. I think we need to accept the advertisement as it is.

By the way what's the OA?
