Hmm. E, is it?

A - We need an assumption here, this is not one. Out.
B - Weak assumption.
C - Out of scope. We are not talking about other people here.
D - Contrary to question stem.
E - $$If you negate it, the argument falls apart... took a lot of time on this one _________________ Uh uh. I know what you're thinking. "Is the answer A, B, C, D or E?" Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. But you've gotta ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

C is interest

E is concerning money, which takes it closer to the argument.

Of course it is between C and E.

Finally settled on (E) because C is making too extreme of an assumption.

I dared to differ from GMAT gurus and I picked D.

Conclusion â€“ Companies rarely hires people who have PhD in liberal Arts.

Assumption: PhDs in Liberal Arts actually interested in joining business world. If they do not at all apply for business jobs and pursue something else, argument falls apart.

What is OA ?

OA is E. But can someone please clearly explain in what C differs from E?

1. Is it sufficient to say that "concern"="interest"? For me the meaning is the same.

2. "Only people" <> "the only people" ???

C says 'SOME' people. Thats to weak an assumption for the conclusion .
