“This company will not be training any more pilots in the foreseeable future, since we have 400 trained pilots on our waiting list who are seeking employment. The other five major companies each have roughly the same number of trained pilots on their waiting lists, and since the projected requirement of each company is for not many more than 100 additional pilots, there will be no shortage of personnel despite the current upswing in the aviation industry.”

Which one of the following, if true, casts the most doubt on the accuracy of the above conclusion?

(A) Most of the trained pilots who are on awaiting list for a job are on the waiting lists of all the major companies.
(B) In the long run, pilot training will become necessary to compensate for ordinary attrition.
(C) If no new pilots are trained, there will be an age imbalance in the pilot work force.
(D) The quoted personnel projections take account of the current upswing in the aviation industry.
(E) Some of the other major companies are still training pilots but with no presumption of subsequent employment.

Winner should be 'A'.

The accuracy of the conclusion is doubted as there may be common pilots on the wait list of the major companies.

C also catches some attention... If there is any age imbalance then the company will have to train new pilots hence the arguement that new company willl not train any new pilot fails.

Wht say guys? Wht is the OA?

A is a more direct opposition to the argument, hence go with A.

OA is A. The company excuses itself for not training more pilots on the grounds that there are already too many trained pilots on waiting lists. A casts the most doubt as it affirms that most of those trained pilots are on waiting lists of other cos.
