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.
A: is not possible until consent has been given B: same as A, nominees can't be disclosed early C: OOS - treatment is not discussed: D: In this case a plausible nominee can be replaced with new person so no nominees will be sure before consent E: Nobody will qualify would be too extreme.
What is the OA?

Definitely E. In my day job at a phone company, I have seen actual processes that "work" something like this.
Here is why it is E: The paragraph says that no one can actually be a nominee until after he or she has CONSENTED to be a nominee. This is stated as follows: "It cannot be known who the actual nominees are until prospective nominees have given their consent to be nominated." The paragraph also says that no one can CONSENT until after he/she is told who the other nominees will be.
This is a perfect circle: You cannot be nominated before you consent. You cannot consent until after you are told who ELSE will be nominated. So you have to wait until other nominees are known before you can consent and become a nominee. The other prospective nominees are in the same position: They can't consent and become nominees until after YOU are known to be a nominee. So you each have to wait for the other, and no one can get nominated.
