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.

Hi allabout,

This is slightly tricky.

It's like a deadlock situation, nobody knows who is the other nominee.

Suppose, there are 2 nominees X & Y, X must know who is Y before giving the consent, at the same time, Y also must know who is X before giving the consent. So, everybody is waiting...

Premises:
To be nominated, you need others consent
To get consent other's, they need to know all other nominees

Q: if you cannot know who the actual nominees are until others have given consent => a deadlock

Hence E can be inferred.

But we are taking the worst case scenario..WHat if there are more than 2 nominees and one of them gives his approval, in that case the other 2 would know..right?
