Hi,

the line"In fact, most of these creative types are less skilled in business than is the average white-collar professional who does not work in a creative field" says it all...It eliminates A and D(which was contender).
The argument says most not "ALL". So Choice D can be crossed. C is out of scope for me.

PS: Conclusion question answer choices shouldnt be extreme first of all(90%).But guys, be sure to check it once.

Generally, creative talent and business acumen rarely go hand in hand.

If the analyst's argument is taken as true, which of the following statements can properly be concluded?

A) No successful business people are creative.
B) Some creative types are not less skilled at business than is the average white-collar worker who is not creative.
C) Creativity precludes success in business.
D) Any white-collar worker who is not creative is more successful in business than any creative professional.
E) Business is not a creative endeavor.

OA is B but is it that the average white-collar worker who does not work in a creative field can still be creative . So I find B not really convincing.

I agree with vad3tha.... a white collar professional working in non creative field can still be creative....
option should have been that "Some creative types are not less skilled at business than is the average white-collar worker who does not work in a creative field"

Am I the only one, who thinks that MGMAT CR's are not GMAT like...
I prefer the MGMAT SC Part which is more GMAT like...

Most means more than 50%. If we pick most to be 100% in this case then some(atleast 1) will not suffice.
So how B is correct?

we are told that talent+business rarely go hand in hand - not never. out.

B) Some creative types are not less skilled at business than is the average white-collar worker who is not creative.
true - close to argument's wording.

C) Creativity precludes success in business.
very extreme.

D) Any white-collar worker who is not creative is more successful in business than any creative professional.
same way of thinking as in A.

E) Business is not a creative endeavor.

Took 3 minutes but got the correct answer.Stuck in debating between 2 useless choices,C and D.
Proper conclusion is B because if MOST(NOT ALL) creative people are less skilled in handling business than avg white collar employees who aren't creative,then SOME creative people are NOT LESS SKILLED(OR MORE SKILLED) than them.

Can someone clarify if "most" includes "ALL"? If yes, then B cannot be true.
The statement does not necessarily says: Most but not all -- how do we assume it?

Analyst: Creative professionals, such as clothing designers, graphic designers, and decorators, often have very poor managerial skills and do not succeed when they try to run their own businesses. In fact, most of these creative types are less skilled in business than is the average white-collar professional who does not work in a creative field. Generally, creative talent and business acumen rarely go hand in hand.

If the analyst's argument is taken as true, which of the following statements can properly be concluded?

1)As per the argument - most of these creative types are less skilled in business than is the average white-collar professional who does not work in a creative field.
In above statement the use of most leaves space for some.
2) Generally, creative talent and business acumen rarely go hand in hand.---This statement leaves space for specific condition.

(A)No successful business people are creative.----Strong Statement leaves no space for specific condition.(Generalized one )
(B)Some creative types are not less skilled at business than is the average white-collar worker who is not creative.---Fulfills the scope left by the argument.
(C)Creativity precludes success in business.----Strong Statement leaves no space for specific condition.(Generalized one )
(D)Any white-collar worker who is not creative is more successful in business than any creative professional.---Includes all rather than most.
(E)Business is not a creative endeavor.Strong Statement leaves no space for specific condition.(Generalized one )

was in a quandary about to choose between B and D. Can anyone tell me why D is being eliminated except the reason too extreme. Though B is the most appropriate to be the OA.

I dont understand how option be is correct.
''MOST'' means -more than 50% or all. So its possible that All of these creative types are less skilled than..
Hence, in this case ''Some creative types are not less skilled than..'' will not hold true as a conclusion.
