[quote="tarek99"]The Green Ensemble, a nonprofit theater group, has always been financially dependent on contributions from corporations and would have been forced to disband this year if any of its corporate sponsors had withdrawn their financial support. But the Green Ensemble has not only been able to continue in operation throughout this year, but also announced its schedule for the next year.
Which of the following is a conclusion that can be properly drawn from the above information?
a) None of the Green Ensemble's corporate sponsors withdrew their financial support of the group this year.
b) Earlier this year, the group found new non-coprate sponsors and other sources of funding for the next year, making the group less dependent on corporate sponsors for financial support.
c) During this year, the corporate funding for the group almost doubled so that they could announce their programs for the next year also.
d) The Green Ensemble started using more risque themes in its plays so that there will be more public support and less reliance on corporate sponsorship.
e) The members of the Green Ensemble agreed to take a substantial cut in their salaries in order to continue into the next year.
The OA is not wrong. I got A without reading your comments below.
Just look what conclusion can be drawn only from the given text. Don’t be too smart
just use the given text. Also, you can use the process of elimination here. Nothing that you are stating in C is really given in the question stem. Again, you can assume these and reason it with other info, but you can’t draw this (C ) conclusion from the given information.
Hope this helps.
