With a record number of new companies starting up in Derderia, and with previously
established companies adding many new jobs, a record number of new jobs were created
last year in the Derderian economy. This year, previously established companies will not
be adding as many new jobs overall as such companies added last year. Therefore, unless
a record number of companies start up this year, Derderia will not break its record for
new jobs created.
Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument relies?
A. In a given year, new companies starting up create more new jobs on average than
do previously established companies.
B. The number of people seeking employment is no larger this year than it was last
year.
C. This year, the new companies starting up will not provide substantially more jobs
per company than did new companies last year.
D. Previously established companies in Derderia will be less profitable this year than
such companies were last year.
E. The number of jobs created in the Derderian economy last year was substantially
larger than the number of jobs lost.

[conclusion].
Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument relies?
A. In a given year, new companies starting up create more new jobs on average than
do previously established companies. <-- nope this is a repetition of the premise.
B. The number of people seeking employment is no larger this year than it was last
year. <-- irrelevant
C. This year, the new companies starting up will not provide substantially more jobs
per company than did new companies last year. <-- bingo, the new companies this year could potentially create a lot more jobs per company.

D. Previously established companies in Derderia will be less profitable this year than
such companies were last year. <-- irrelevant
E. The number of jobs created in the Derderian economy last year was substantially
larger than the number of jobs lost. <-- irrelevant
