The Volunteer for Literacy Program would benefit if Dolores takes Victors place as director, since Dolores is far more skillful than Victor is at securing the kind of financial support the program needs and Dolores does not have Victor’s propensity for alienating program’s most dedicated volunteers.

The pattern of reasoning in the argument above is most closely paralleled in which one of the following?

(A) It would be more convenient for Dominique to take a bus to school than to take the subway, since the bus stops closer to her house than does the subway and, unlike the subway, the bus goes directly to the school.
(B) Joshua’s interest would be better served by taking the bus to get to his parent’s house rather than by taking an airplane, since his primary concern is to travel as cheaply as possible and taking the bus is less expensive than going by airplane.
(C) Belinda will get to the concert more quickly by subway than by taxi since the concert takes place on a Friday evening and on Friday evenings traffic near the concert hall is exceptionally heavy.
(D) Anita would benefit financially by taking the train to work rather than driving her car, since when she drives she has to pay parking fees and the daily fee for parking a car is higher than a round-trip train ticket.
(E) It would be to Fred’s advantage to exchange his bus tickets for train tickets since he needs to arrive at his meeting before any of the other participants and if he goes by bus at least one of the other participants will arrive first.

Please explain your answers. I know the OA and will post it later.

I say the answer is A because thats the only one which has 2 reasons supporting a certain case.

A is consistent with the original -

The structure of stem is - For something to happen two things are cited - one is positive (Dolores is more skilfull) and the other is that "a negative effect is not present" - Dolores does NOT have the propensity to alienate volunteers

We need a similar structure - bus is better than subway since it stops closer to the house and UNLIKE the subway goes directly to the school (one positive one negative)

A for two reasons
1. It states 2 advantages
and
2. it states that unlike the subway like D does not have the propensity that Victory has....
