(B) Quore will not go bankrupt if it achieves a productivity increase of 20 percent over the next two years.

Looks like E, If a 20 percent productivity increase is unattainable for Quore, then a 10% increase is not attainable either.

Very good.

At first I thought (B) would be good, but after reading your explanation, I switch over to (E).

Easy to narrow down b/w B and E

Both seem correct to me.

I chose B.

B is out because there can be other reasons beside productivity increase, that can cause it to go bankcruupt. So, it those reasons are not met, only procuctivity increase will not stop the bankcrupcy.

So we are left with E.

that is the only choice.

Clearly E.

The statement above is the following:

If not(10%) then Bankrupty
If 10% then 20%

We can deduce that if not(20%) then not(10%) and then Bankrupty. Therefore E must be.

B may or may not be true. We only know the opposite.
