Is it (A). If she did not use 2 wks, she could use up to 1 wk this year in addition to what she gets per norms (3 wks) which explains how she got 4 wks in all.

A B and D survive.... others are out of scope

A can't be true... because in that case Jennifer would get 1/2 week vacation, adding to 3 1/2 weeks and she is going for 4

B may or may not be true... if the policy changes or she doesn't go on vacation this year, then the conclusion is ruined

I say D because it is certain.... if she took last year 1 week out of four, she had 2 left, of which 1 was transfered to this year... this year should took 3 plus one from last year and went to 4 weeks of vacation... what a dream

A. Jennifer did not use two weeks of the paid vacation time to which she was entitled last year.

D. Last year Jennifer took only one week of the paid vacation time to which she was entitled

A. the dispute is between A and D but A is better.

D would be ok, if she started to work last year but we donot know about this. she might have took four weeks last year as well if she had been working with the compay since five years and had some accumullated vacations (more than 4 weeks). therefore, we cannot say about how many weeks she took last year for vacation.

but we can clearly say that she had at least two weeks left from the last year therefore she is able to apply for one more weeks of vacation to make up 4 weeks of vacation.

Will go with A.
Had choosen D , but upon rereading the choices changed my amswer to A.

We cannot conclusively say how many weeks of vacation Jennifer took.
But to be able to take four weeks of vacation this year she must have atleast two weeks of unused vacation left from last year. Remember she can only take half of the left over vacation. 1/2 of 2 is 1 and 3+1 = 4weeks.

Agree. A.
She could have taken 2 years of vacation last year (1 from prev year + 1 regular), leaving back 2. this makes it 1 + 3 for her this year.
