At firms with vertical hierarchical structures, managers are generally unlikely to suggest reductions in the number of employees in their own divisions even when these divisions have more employees than are needed.

Each of the following, if true, supports the claim above EXCEPT:

A. Many of the world's largest corporations allow managers to offer early retirement as a means of reducing staff.
B. Managers are typically able to generate more income when they supervise more workers.
C. Having an abundantly populated staff enables managers to reduce their workload.
D. When workers are laid off, it can cause a damaging blow to the morale of workers that remain at the organization.
E. At most large corporations, the need for workers can fluctuate dramatically, and unpredictably

Hit a kudos, if you like the post.

A) yes this option negates the conclusion so it is the correct answer
B) this option strengthens the conclusion. (wrong)
c) strengthens the conclusion (wrong)
d) supports the conclusion (wrong)
e) out of scope as we have to tell only about firms that have vertical hierarchical structures

Read the question stem carefully as it asks you to find the option that does not support the conclusion so answer choice A is correct.
