Ann will either take a leave of absence from Technocomp and return in a year or else she will quit her job there; but she would not do either one unless she were offered a one-year teaching fellowship at a prestigious university. Technocomp will allow her to take a leave of absence if it does not find out that she has been offered the fellowship, but not otherwise. Therefore, Ann will quit her job at Technocomp only if Technocomp finds out she has been offered the fellowship.

Which one of the following, if assumed, allows the conclusion above to be properly drawn?


(A) Technocomp will find out about Ann being offered the fellowship only if someone informs on her.

(B) The reason Ann wants the fellowship is so she can quit her job at Technocomp.

(C) Technocomp does not allow any of its employees to take a leave of absence in order to work for one of its competitors.

(D) Ann will take a leave of absence if Technocomp allows her to take a leave of absence.

(E) Ann would be offered the fellowship only if she quit her job at Technocomp

Nice question!!

Answer per me is D.

Explaination:
Ann has two options, given she gets fellowship:
1) take a year vacation
2) quit the job

Otherwise she won't take any.

Now... If her company somehow knows about fellowship they won't give vacation.

So, Ann will quit the job only if her company knows about the fellowship.

Well what if she quits the job because of another reason. As per power score terminology, it's a strongly worded argument and yes we need to defend the other ways through which we can guard the argument from other scenarios in which Ann could quit.


A) the point is not how the company would find about Ann. It's about how she will not quit because of any other cicrumstances.

B) the intent Behind opting for fellowship does not show us why she won't choose to quit.

C) this is completely irrelevant ....

D) well as per this option we know that Ann has choice to either chose to take leave or quit. What if even they don't know and Ann plans to quit ( as per logical structure she can do that and hence we need to negate this to defend the only if condition)
Hence this is our answer.

E) the question is how she will quit not why.

Rishav

Conclusion states that Ann will quit only if Technocomp does not let her take leave of absence.
Hence if Technocomp allows it will take leave of absence. statement D very clearly repeats this assumption.
Hence answer D


(A) Technocomp will find out about Ann being offered the fellowship only if someone informs on her. No where mentioned as a possibility.

(B) The reason Ann wants the fellowship is so she can quit her job at Technocomp. Not at all implied. Rather reverse is mentioned that she will quit only if they find out.

(C) Technocomp does not allow any of its employees to take a leave of absence in order to work for one of its competitors. Competitors are not mentioned

(D) Ann will take a leave of absence if Technocomp allows her to take a leave of absence. Stated clearly

(E) Ann would be offered the fellowship only if she quit her job at Technocomp. Reverse mentioned
