Therefore, if corporate policy is hostile to, say, organizational concerns, it is not because of corporate perversity but because elected officials believe that ______.

B) organizational concerns are being accommodated as well as corporate funds permit.
C) the corporates are overly anxious about organizational deterioration.

If you like this post, +1 Kudos! :)


Premises:
Board has democratically elected optimists sensitive to the workforce.
They establish policies that will result in their own reelection.

Conclusion: if corporate policy is hostile to, say, organisational concerns, it is because elected officials believe that ______.

What follows will be some explanation that can be derived from the premises i.e. the board establishes policies suitable to its own reelection.

(E) does just that.
(E) the majority of voters do not strongly wish for a different policy.

It is an implication of "board establishes policies suitable to its own reelection". So if majority of voters would have wanted a different policy, for its own reelection, the board would have done it.
None of the other options serves this purpose.
