The following proposal to amend the bylaws of an organization was circulated to its members for comment.
When more than one nominee is to be named for an office, prospective nominees must consent to nomination and before giving such consent must be told who the other nominees will be.
Which of the following comments concerning the logic of the proposal is accurate if it cannot be known who the actual nominees are until prospective nominees have given their consent to be nominated?
(A) The proposal would make it possible for each of several nominees for an office to be aware of who all of the other nominees are.
(B) The proposal would widen the choice available to those choosing among the nominees.
(C) If there are several prospective nominees, the proposal would deny the last nominee equal treatment with the first.
(D)The proposal would enable a prospective nominee to withdraw from competition with a specific person without making that withdrawal known.
(E) If there is more than one prospective nominee, the proposal would make it impossible for anyone to become a nominee.

I am completely off tack on this.

But will not hesitate to pick C.

Only when the nominee consent, then he will be made aware of other choices.

E.
The rule is simple, before one is nominated he should know who the other nominees are.
In such a case, how can the first person be nominated, as he wouldn't know how many of the other would be nominated/ consent to their nomination.

The answer has to be E.

My reasoning is the same as that of HMTG.

I switched from E to C

Let us consider the following scenario:

At the beginning, we have one nominee: Mr. A. There is no constraint at this point. So he agreed to be nominated.

Then we asked if Mr. B wanted to be nominated. He was told that Mr. A. had been nominated.

Now look at Mr. A, his case did not violate the rule because he made his decision long time ago. Basically, we are not asking him for consent again.

<u>When more than one nominee is to be named for an office, prospective nominees <B>must consent to nomination and before giving such consent must be told who the other nominees will be.</b> </u>

In other words, we trigger the above rule only when asking for nominee's consent. As a result, the first one is always treated differently from the rest.

would go for E here.

qpoo - this is kind of a DS situation. You did consider one situation perfectly, but what if all the nominees came at the same time to be nominated. Dont think the rule will work at that time.

The answer is E...

If you don't know who the nominees are, then it's impossible to to be told who the nominees are, therefore, how would anyone be nominated?

(E) If there is more than one prospective nominee, the proposal would make it impossible for anyone to become a nominee.

Must be told who the other nominees are if more than one nominee.
Question: What if none of the nominees are known?
Result: Unknown nominees = nobody can give consent.

Answer must be E. I hope.......
