Analyst: This corporation is currently putting all its efforts into maximizing short-term profits. Whatever happened to our traditional philosophy of slow, steady growth and emphasis on long-term profitability? One aspect of the problem is seen in simple mathematics. Of our 57 district managers, only 7 have been with the corporation for five years or more. In addition, only 5 of our 16 vice-presidents and only 2 of the 9 members of the board of directors have been with the corporation for five years.

Which of the following conclusions does the author of this passage most probably want the reader to draw?

A. The corporation needs to seek leadership from outside sources if it is to remain profitable in the long run.
B. One of the reasons that the corporation's traditional financial goals have been ignored is that very few of its high-ranking employees have much experience with the corporation.
C. The only reason that the corporation's traditional financial goals have been ignored is that very few of its high-ranking employees have much experience with the corporation.
D. The corporation's traditional financial goals are outmoded.
E. Even though the corporation's traditional financial goals are being ignored, company management has made great strides by bringing in leadership from outside sources.

The choice is between B and C. But C uses the term "only", whereas it is clearly mentioned in the passage "One aspect of the problem". Hence B is the correct option
