Business Consultant: Some corporations shun the use of executive titles because they fear that the use of titles indicating position in the corporation tends to inhibit communication up and down the corporate hierarchy. Since an executive who uses a title is treated with more respect by outsiders, however, use of a title can facilitate an executive’s dealings with external businesses. Clearly, corporations should adopt the compromise of encouraging their executives to use their corporate titles externally but not internally, since even if it is widely known that the corporation’s executives use titles outside their organization, this knowledge does not by itself inhibit communication within the corporation.

In the consultant’s reasoning, the two portions in boldface play which of the following roles?

A. The first describes a strategy that has been adopted to avoid a certain problem; the second presents a drawback to that strategy.
B. The first describes a strategy that has been adopted to avoid a certain problem; the second is a consideration raised to call into question the effectiveness of that strategy as a means of achieving that goal.
C. The first describes a strategy that has been adopted to avoid a certain problem; the second is a consideration the consultant raises in questioning the significance of that problem.
D. The first is part of an explanation that the consultant offers for a certain phenomenon; the second is that phenomenon.
E. The first describes a policy for which the consultant seeks to provide a justification; the second is a consideration the consultant raises as part of that justification.

Some corporations shun the use of executive titles - Strategy
use of a title can facilitate an executive’s dealings with external businesses - if this is true, then strategy not effective.

Hence go with A.

Will go with A here.
Some corporations shun the use of executive titles - Strategy
use of a title can facilitate an executive’s dealings with external businesses - Advantage of using a title, hence drawback to the startegy

B - wrong, as the goal is to improve communication within. The second bold part doesnot question the effectiveness of the strategy to achieve the goal as the consultant states adopt the compromise of encouraging their executives to use their corporate titles externally but not internally, since even if it is widely known that the corporation’s executives use titles outside their organization, this knowledge does not by itself inhibit communication within the corporation"

OA please??????

I'll go for E through POE.

A. The second is not a drawback. It presents another view.
B. The EFFECTIVENESS? (Out of scope)
C. The SIGNIFICANCE? (Out of scope)
D. The first and second are definitely related to different situations. One is within the organization and the other is outside the organization.
E. All others seem wrong. So E through POE.

I have narrowed it down to A or C

To me C sounds very negative in it approach.

A sounds more like a cause and effect.

I will go with A

Ill go with E here too. It is definitely NOT a drawback. The company is simply stating that usage of external titles should be encouraged while using titles should be abolished.

I'll go with A. Anybody has any idea what's the approach to follow for solving Bold Faced reasoning questions? Most of the times I am clueless with BF questions as all the choices seem similar.
