(B) cannot be the answer because it is already stated in the question. Assumption questions can't do this, otherwise it is not an assumption. Help would be appreciated.

Hi B is the answer let me explain

Adoption agency representative: It is true that eight of our last ten babies have been placed with parents who were personally acquainted with at least one of our staff members before initiating the adoption process. However, there is no truth to the accusation against us of favoritism; our decisions have been guided solely by the best interests of the children. Indeed, all ten babies' new parents far surpassed the adoption criteria set both by the law and by our own policy.


A not correct
A talks about the plan that the agency carried out is not successful we are not concerned about the plan we are concerned about bias that the agency says it does not show.


B on the other hand is the correct answer of all parents who were successful most of them were acquainted with the agency shows that the agency does not have bias as it gives babies to only those parents who have surpassed criteria.


Which of the following is an assumption on which the representative's argument depends?

(A) The agency's prior placements of babies with parents who were previously acquainted with its staff have not, in general, been more successful than those with parents unacquainted with the staff.

(B) Of those prospective parents who substantially surpassed the criteria for adoption, most were personally acquainted with agency staff before beginning the application process.

(C) For a time period equal in duration to that during which the data were collected, the average number of babies placed by the agency is close to ten.

(D) Most prospective parents who apply to adopt babies do not meet the agency's criteria for adoption.

(E) The agency will only place babies with parents who not only meet the legal and institutional criteria for adoption, but who in fact surpass those criteria.

Hi Arvind,

I'm sorry, but this does not clarify my concern. I still hold (B) cannot be true unless this were an inference or strengthen problem.
