Smithtown Universityâ€™s fund-raisers succeeded in getting donations from 80 percent of the potential donors they contacted. This success rate, exceptionally high for university fund-raisers, does not indicate that they were doing a good job. On the contrary, since the people most likely to donate are those who have donated in the past, good fund-raisers constantly try less-likely prospects in an effort to expand the donor base. The high success rate shows insufficient canvassing effort.
Which of the following, if true, provides more support for the argument?
A. Smithtown Universityâ€™s fund-raisers were successful in their contacts with potential donors who had never given before about as frequently as were fund-raisers for other universities in their contacts with such people. - this contridicts the premisis
B. This year the average size of the donations to Smithtown University from new donors when the universityâ€™s fund-raisers had contacted was larger than the average size of donations from donors who had given to the university before. - it says new doners - same reason as A
C. This year most of the donations that came to Smithtown University from people who had previously donated to it were made without the universityâ€™s fund-raisers having made any contact with the donors. - this reasons the without canvassing theory said in the premises so this is right !
D. The majority of the donations that fund-raisers succeeded in getting for Smithtown University this year were from donors who had never given to the university before. - same as A
E. More than half of the money raised by Smithtown Universityâ€™s fund-raisers came from donors who had never previously donated to the university. - different words but same meaning as D
Can anyone share the source of this problem ?
I think this can not come in GMAT as it is because -
Options B,C,D Can Not be the answer there, as B,C,D options limits the scope of this argument to one year/ this year !!
The problem statement shared says Nothing about one year/ this year.
Such cope shift allows that given options can be kicked out.
Any Experts !!
Appreciate it with Kudos !!
