### HideShow timer Statistics

A study of 1000 American citizens has found that 70 per cent of them would not work for a company with bad reputation even if they were unemployed and that nearly 90 per cent of them would consider leaving their current jobs if they were offered another role with a company that had an excellent corporate reputation. Of those willing to work for a company with a bad reputation, the research found that, on average, it would take doubling an employee's salary for them to make such a jump.

If the statements above are true, which of the following conclusions is most strongly supported by them?

A) At least 10% of the people in the survey would not mind working for a company with a bad reputation but would also consider leaving their current jobs to join another company with excellent corporate reputation

B) The survey is representative of the worker pool across the United States

C) At least 25% of the people in the survey would agree to do an unethical act if their salary was substantially increased

D) For US workers, higher salary takes precedence over the reputation of the company they work for

E) If a company in the US expects to attract the best talent, it must either have an excellent corporate reputation or be ready to pay high salaries

The question stem seems to be missing. May I request you to edit the question?

A

According to the stimulus, 300 of the 1000 people would be willing to work for a company with a
bad reputation. Also 900 people would consider leaving their current jobs if they were offered a
role with a company that had an excellent corporate reputation. Since the total number of people
is only 1000, it has to be the case that (300-100) 200 people will be such that they would belong to
both the above groups. (A) states this best and is the correct answer. Don’t be confused by the fact
that (A) mentions 10% and not 20% (200 out of 1000); notice that (A) uses the term at least 10% i.e.
at least 100 people.

A. The correct answer

B. The argument only talks about the pool of 1000 people who were surveyed and does not
conclude anything for workers across the United States

C. The argument never really describes what constitutes an unethical act

D. We cannot really conclude this for all workers in the United States

E. Extreme inference. There could be a third situation as well apart from these two.
