a) reduce the qualifications for promotion to department head
Correct.


b) reduce the average number of employees per department
the company won't allow as mentioned in the passage-
'have current department heads take over more than one department'
c) reduce the responsibilities of each department
no mention.
d) promote more than one employee from any department to serve as heads of departments
the company won't allow as mentioned in the passage.
e) promote any current department heads to higher-level managerial positions
irrelevant.

Argument has already stated the conditions for the qualification required to be the Head of the Department.

A. This gives the correct reason as to why some departments will be without department heads
B. Even if the average no of employees are reduced, the number of employees qualified for head are half of expected vacancies.
C. Irrelevant.
D. This is already stated in the conditions that no head will serve more than one department.
E. Does not make sense here.

Kudos if it helps :-)

I am confused about option D. How is option D already mentioned in the passage? The passage says that no head will serve more than one department whereas option D says that company won't promote more than one employee from any department to serve as heads of departments.

Both these sentences have totally different meanings I think....

Any help here ?

a) reduce the qualifications for promotion to department head --Correct
b) reduce the average number of employees per department --Doesn't impact the number of department heads
c) reduce the responsibilities of each department --Responsibilities? out of scope
d) promote more than one employee from any department to serve as heads of departments --Even if Wempro would promote more than 1 employee from single department the number of eligible candidates is less than the number of departments
e) promote any current department heads to higher-level managerial positions --We are talking about departments whose head will retire.

Hi I got it wrong initially .I chose D .However D can not be the answer as it is already stated in the passage that an employee ca not head more than one department .
So only B is the valid answer as if the company reduces the qualifications for employees then there will more people applying and more selected .But this is not the case as they will not reduce the qualification and thus there will be many departments without heads.
