Its A. Company P manufactures products that are more hazardous for workers and hence it is more likely to have job-related accidents compared with that of Company O. All other options do not strengthen the conclusion.

Companies O and P each have the same number of employees who work the same number of hours per week. According to records maintained by each company, the employees of Company O had fewer job-related accidents last year than did the employees of Company P. Therefore, employees of Company O are less likely to have job-related accidents than are employees of Company P.

Which of the following, if true, would most strengthen the conclusion above?

Meaning:
Premise 1 -risk@P>risk@O
Premise 2 -More risk, More accidents
Conclusion -Probability of accidents @O<accidents@P



(A) Company P manufactures products that are more hazardous for workers to produce than does Company O.
risk@P>risk@O
More risk, More accidents-strengthening- correct

(B) Company P holds more safety inspections than does Company O.
if so, then accidents should be less@P-incorrect
(C) Company P maintains a more modern infirmary than does Company O.
MODERN INFIRMARY (health facility comes second)doesn't signifies risk and hence the accidents - incorrect
(D) Company O paid more for new job-related medical claims than did Company P.
Medical claim is secondary , the question is concerned about the accidents reported ! mediclaim will come into picture later.-incorrect
(E) Company P provides more types of health-care benefits than does Company O.
even though it can not guarantee the less no. of accidents @ P-Incorrect
