### HideShow timer Statistics

A team of Andersen Consultants conducted a study of Company X and found that 85 percent of its employees suffered a "dehydration" between the hours of 2 and 4 in the afternoon. During the slump, you can assume productivity died. Conclusion says that mgt should encourage employees to take lunch naps between two and four since productivity is not needed at lunch.

Assumption: No relation between consumption of food and tiredness by employees of company during lunch.
Works:
1) If they were tired during lunch, they would not want them to take lunch.
2) Taking time off during lunch happens because they don't need to be productive. If they are less productive, the company wouldn't want to make them worser, right. I don't think these are the best ways to explain it.b

Under works:

I try to justify that assumption. How am I post to know what GMAT is assuming?

I think the worse logic questions are in the PR workbook; my personal opinion.

Nevertheless, if I understand it correctly, the decrease in productivity happns becuase they just took a lunch break and digesting food with their brain Thus, the productivity falls.

Also, it is not very possible to persuade people to take their lunch break just before they are leaving work unless they come in at 10.

I think I totally missed the point, so you may have to explain it to me again. Your writing seems to be quire resistant for my head, am I getting old?

That's not quite, right. I'll give you the question in its entirety and then you can explain why that assumption is right.
