However, RenCo dose not have the same financial incentive to adopt such a policy, because ______.

A. early treatment of high cholesterol dose not entirely eliminate the possibility of a stroke later in life
B. the mass media regularly feature stories encouraging people to maintain diets that are low in cholesterol
C. RenCo has significantly more employees than Garnet has
D. RenCo’s employees are unlikely to have higher cholesterol levels than Garnet’s employees
E. the average length of time an employee stays with RenCo is less than it is with Garnet

Early treatment of high cholesterol does not eliminate .... stroke later in life is applicable for Garnet's employees as well but in the stimulus it is clearly mentioned that even by adopting the policy Garnet saves money.

This options attacks both Garnet and RenCo. However only E is the clear differentiator in all of the options. Moreover if we negate option E, it will become clear that argument falls apart -- "RenCo dose not have the same financial incentive to adopt such a policy".

If employees of RenCo also were to stay for the same length of time as Garnet, it would be prudent for RenCo to also have the same policy.

its E

RenCo dose not the adopt policy for testing of its employees’ cholesterol levels and treatment of high cholesterol because it retains workers for a shorter duration and the the serious ill effects of the high cholesterol levels manifest much later....when the said workers are no longer employed by RenCo. So it pays little to follow a policy catering to long term health concerns.

A-would be financially viable for Garnet....

think about it this way, the stimulus clearly specifies that HC levels left untreated will lead to sever conditions(not necessarily stroke but other conditions that are way expensive) but still, say if this is hold true, A would still not give us a reason to justify Renco position because there is a possibility that Renco would have to pay expensive treatments. We need some other reason that would tell us that there is small possibility Renco will have to pay in the future..that would be E, employees are not going to be there for long

Request you not to write your queries/answers/opinions in question window. It prevents ppl from analysing the question. The whole purpose of GMAT Club forum goes wasted by doing so.
