To prevent some conflict of interests, Congress could porohibit high-level government officials from accepting positions as lobbyist for three years after such officials leave government service. One such official concluded, however that such a prohibition could be unfortunate because it it would prevent highlevel government officials from earning a livelihood for three years.

The official's conclusion depends on which of the following assumptions?

a) Law should not restrict the behaviour of former government officials.

b)Lobbyist are typically people who have previosly been high-level government officials.

c) Low-level government officials do not often become lobbyists when they leave government service.

d) High-level government officials who leave government service are capable of earning a livelihood only as lobbyists.

e) High-level government officials who leave government service are currently permitted to act as lobbyists for only three years.

I konw the right answer, but I don`t undertand why is it.

I hope to discuss this question here.

Thanks a lot.

The argument says if government officials cannot be lobbyists, they cannot earn a livelyhood for 3 years.
Why? Cant they do some other job??
So he has assumed that govt officials can only be lobbyists.
Hence D.
