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.
Which one of the following is a logical conclusion that depends on information in both of the statements above?
(A) Public offices should be abolished so that disposable incomes will rise.
(B) The only real taxpayers are those who would have more to spend if they did not pay taxes.
(C) Public employees are not real taxpayers.
(D) Public employees’ incomes should not be taxed since they come from taxes.
(E) If there were no taxes, then public employees could not be paid.

Because E can be inferred using just the 2nd statement. We do not need the 1st statement to determine E. But we can only determine C if we have both the statements. (The question asks us to determine a conclusion using both the statements.)

Not convinced with the reasoning. My vote is for E.
It's a CR question not syllogism.
In the stimulus, it is mentioned that on abolishing taxes, real taxpayers' income increases while that of public employees' disappears. It is not stated that there income decreases. This is what E argues:
(E) If there were no taxes, then public employees could not be paid.

Anyone with a different reasoning?
