Because a large disparity in pay between the public and private sectors has developed in recent years, many experienced and extremely capable government administrators have quit their posts and taken positions in private-sector management. Government will be able to recapture these capable administrators by raising salaries to a level comparable to those of the private sector. In that way, the functioning of public agencies will be improved.

The position taken above presupposes which one of the following?

(A) Experience gained from private-sector management will be very valuable in government administration.

(B) The most important factor determining how well government agencies function is the amount of experience the administrators have.

(C) Unless government action is taken, the disparity in pay between government administration and private-sector management will continue to increase.

(D) People who moved from jobs in government administration to private-sector management would choose to change careers again.

(E) If the disparity in pay between government administration and private-sector management increases, administrators will move to the public sector in large numbers.

Its D. If we negate D the argument falls apart.

I would go for D.

The paragraph's main idea is to bring back the people who moved to private sector so if the government announces any profitable changes in the salary the people will tend to move back. And inference from option D is the same

Because a large disparity in pay between the public and private sectors has developed in recent years, many experienced and extremely capable government administrators have quit their posts and taken positions in private-sector management. Government will be able to recapture these capable administrators by raising salaries to a level comparable to those of the private sector. In that way, the functioning of public agencies will be improved.

Type- assumption

(A) Experience gained from private-sector management will be very valuable in government administration. -Maybe the experience is not valuable at all. Plus what is this idea of "value?" Will "value" contribute to a better functioning? Can it be possible that there was no valuable experience gained and yet the public agency will function better? Absolutely

(B) The most important factor determining how well government agencies function is the amount of experience the administrators have. --Most important is not needed here . Maybe the capable and experienced govt. administrators were good because of their drive. Maybe drive is the most important factor.

(C) Unless government action is taken, the disparity in pay between government administration and private-sector management will continue to increase.-- Irrelevant

(D) People who moved from jobs in government administration to private-sector management would choose to change careers again. - Correct

(E) If the disparity in pay between government administration and private-sector management increases, administrators will move to the public sector in large numbers. -- Irrelevant -- we don't know whether the disparity in pay will increase

Answer D
