(E) If there were no taxes, then public employees could not be paid.

D - Question is not about whether Public Employees's income should be taxed or not. Question is what happens if the income is taxed. E answers that
C - The passage is not about whether PE are tax payers or not. Out of Scope
B - Out of Scope
A - The passage is playing out 2 scenarios of abolishing taxes. One in which the income will go up and the other in which the income will go down. The passage is not talking about whether the disposible income should be increased or decreased. Irrelevant

I'll go with C , the question states that the conclusion has to derive from BOTH statements, E just is derived from the 2nd statement

Tricky. Good question. I see why C is correct now. A lesson that I need to pay closer attention to the question after the stem.

If some body is a real taxpayer then when taxes are abolished, he would find that his disposable income has increased. But this is not happening in the case of public employees. For them their incomes have disappeared. That means public employees are not real taxpayers.

I guess ...you can use a venn diagram also to arrive at this conclusion.

Abolish taxes, and real taxpayers would find that their disposable incomes have increased. Abolish taxes, and public employees would find that their incomes have disappeared.

No tax = real taxpayers will have more income
No tax= Public employee will have no income.
Conclusion:- No tax = Any one who is a real taxpayer will see some increase in income except public employee who will not get any income.

Since after removing tax the public employee income is not increased, then it must be concluded thais employee are not real taxpayers.

OPTION C is the correct answer
