This summer, Jennifer , who has worked at KVZ Manufacuturing for just over three years, plans to spend with her family the entire four weeks of paid vacation to which she is entitled this year. Anyone who has worked at KVZ Manufacturing for between one and four years is automatically entitled to exactly three weeks paid vacation each year but can apply upto half of any vacation time that remains unused at the end of one year to the next year's vacation.

If the statements above are all true, which one of the following must also be true on the basis of them?

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

B. If Jennifer continues to work for KVZ manufacturing, she will only be entitled to three weeks paid vacation next year.

C. The majority of KVZ's employees use each year all of the paid vacation time to which they are entitled.

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

E. KVZ Manufacturing sometimes allows extra vacation time to employees who need to spend more time with their families.

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 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.

if she did not take last year 2 weeks of paid vacation Jennifer this year can use of that untouched weeks one week (half), adding it with the 3 weeks of this year then she can take 4 year of entitled vacation.....answear is A

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

A, because 2/2+1 = 4 and Jennifer usess "the entire four weeks "..

Happy New Year everyone! Before I get started on this post, and well, restarted on this blog in general, I wanted to mention something. For the past several months...

Happy 2017! Here is another update, 7 months later. With this pace I might add only one more post before the end of the GSB! However, I promised that...
