### HideShow timer Statistics

Citing the legal precedent set by asbestos exposure cases, a state judge agreed to combine a series of workplace disability cases involving repetitive stress injuries to the hands and wrists. The judge's decision to consolidate into one case hundreds of suits by data entry workers, word processors, newspaper employees, and other workers who use computers is likely to prove detrimental to the computer manufacturing companies being sued, notwithstanding the defense's argument that the cases should not be combined because of the different individuals and workplaces involved.

The statements above best support which of the following conclusions?

The judge's decision to consolidate the suits implies a commonality among the situations, thereby strengthening the plaintiffs' claim that the manufacturers are liable.
Individual rulings in repetitive injury suits often enable manufacturers to escape liability on technical grounds.
The plaintiffs bringing suit against the computer manufacturers have similar employment histories and used similar equipment at their jobs.
The parties accused of liability in workplace injury cases are more likely to settle if the suits are consolidated into one case.
Because consolidated cases tend to receive more publicity than individual rulings, they often result in further lawsuits against manufacturers.

Between A and C, I would go with A. Judge's decision strengthens plantiff's case is implied in the passage. In C, I am not sure on similar employment histories.

A seems to be correct. It is the only conclusion among all the statements.
