3. When workers do not find their assignments challenging, they become bored and so achieve less than their abilities would allow. On the other hand, when workers find their assignments too difficult, they give up and so again achieve less than what they are capable of achieving. It is, therefore, clear that no workerâ€™s full potential will ever be realized.
Which one of the following is an error of reasoning contained in the argument?
(A) mistakenly equating what is actual and what is merely possible
(B) assuming without warrant that a situation allows only two possibilities
(C) relying on subjective rather than objective evidence
(D) confusing the coincidence of two events with a causal relation between the two
(E) depending on the ambiguous use of a key term

It may be possible to give assignments that are just in the right range vis-a-vis abilities. This possibility was mistakenly ruled out.

(C) relying on subjective rather than objective evidence
(D) confusing the coincidence of two events with a causal relation between the two
(E) depending on the ambiguous use of a key term

There is a golden mean - not too challenging, at the sametime not too easy.
