Any combination of overwork and stress inevitably leads of insomnia. Managers at HiCorp, Inc., all suffer from stress. A majority of the managersâ€”despite their doctorsâ€™ warningsâ€”work well over 60 hours per week, whereas the other managers work no more than the normal 40 hours per week. HiCorp gives regular bonuses only to employees who work more than 40 hours per week.

Which of the following conclusions is most strongly supported by the statements above?

(A) Managers at HiCorp work under conditions that are more stressful than the conditions under which managers at most other companies work.
(B) Most of the employee bonuses given by HiCorp are given to managers.
(C) At HiCorp, insomnia is more widespread among managers than among any other group of employees.
(D) No manager at HiCorp who works only 40 hours per week suffers from overwork.
(E) Most of the managers at HiCorp who receive regular bonuses have insomnia.

Can you please solve using the rules fo logical reasoning..

(A) wont work bcoz we know nothing about other companies from the data.
(E) works bcoz we know all suffer from stress and a combination of overwork and stress causes insomnia. So those who get bonuses satisfy both conditions needed to have insomnia.

Clear E....

Stress + overwork = insomnia....

From the statement we know that all managers suffer stress....

and in order to receive a bonus you have to work overtime.... therefore overwork....

So.... E

This answer choice is completely out of scope. Beware of outside info on CRs, it`s a classic trap.
