Dean of Trinity College: For the past few years, the reputation of our college has been declining, because of which we are now able to fill in only 70% of the total available seats. If more research work is done in the college, it will create more visibility and hence more students will start applying to our college. Accordingly, we will be able to increase the student count.

Which of the following, if true, raises the most serious doubt regarding the effectiveness of the Dean's plan in increasing the student count at the college?

A) Increase in research will lead to increased expenditure to compensate for which the college will have to in turn increase the tuition fee that is already considered quite high by applicants.
B) To maintain the required teacher-student ratio, the college will have to hire many new professors.
C) Almost 10% of the student applications are rejected by the college each year.
D) Another college in the area that offers the same courses as Trinity was unsuccessful in increasing its visibility by increasing its engagement in research work.
E) The Government will not increase the funding for Trinity, even if the college increases the research work it is doing.

A does the best job by providing a serious disadvantage of the research work done in college. Even if research succeeds in grabbing the attention of students, higher tution fee will impede the applications.
E- what if the college gets a sponsor, then research will be beneficial.
C - This is a part of the process. We can not raise questions on the procedure of applicant selection.
D- typical Gmat trap
B - Irrelevant.
