Hello Experts,

I chose A for the below reasoning. can you let me know if it is correct?

As Manto subtcontracts the work for Model Z, it would mean that manto's workforce might not know how to build model TX because the subcontracted labor always do the work for Model Z. This would mean Manto's workforce works on other models such as Model TZ. Hence there if Manto layoffs employees, it will probably affect the 20 orders for Model TX

yes, A is the answer. The question structure is really confusing.
Premise 1: shortage of orders of model TX -> conclusion 1: lay woff workers
premise 2: new orders for model TX -> conclusion 2: not lay off = against conclusion 1
premise 3: cancel orders for model Z -> conclusion 3: still lay off = against conclusion 2, but side with the conclusion 1.

weaken, no negative word, no question stem (which argument? -> probably the conclusion 3, and the only prime conclusion)
A is the answer b/c model Z uses outside workers while model TX use workers of the company -> no lay off.

Hi!The reason I crossed out option E is that E talks about the consolidated airline's fleet which could have been ordered from other manufacturers and is not related to the employee lay off at Manto. Hope it helps.

Can we have some discussion on this one?...

I am not sure why E cannot be the answer?

E can be interpreted as may airliners in consolidated are at the beginning of their expected service life.

The consolidated airlines fleet's age has no relation to the employees at Manto being laid off.
