Director of Foreign Language School: We should stop giving our students the La Langue Facile tape series and begin to distribute the Les Bons Mots series instead.
Assistant Director: Why?
Director: Because it takes 31 percent more time for teachers to prepare lessons using the La Langue Facile tape series than it takes for teachers to prepare lessons using the Les Bons Mots tape series. This time would be better spent working directly with students.
Assistant Director: That is not a sufficient reason to change instructional tapes. We can simply hire teachers who already have planned lessons based on the La Langue Facile tape series.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously undermines the assistant director’s objection to the argument made by the director?

A. All teachers in the school district are currently required to attend classes to learn how to adapt the La Langue Facile tapes to new educational standards.
B. Once teachers have made lesson plans, they are more willing to move from their current positions to positions with new language schools.
C. Teachers with established lesson plans hired by foreign language schools are required to put in additional hours in administrative support, hours equal to the time they would have spent in making lesson plans.
D. The average improvement in scores on tests of fluency in the director’s school is below the average improvement in standardized test scores in otherwise comparable schools.
E. The supplemental course materials required for use with the Les Bons Mots tape series require teachers to invest a great deal of time in logistical arrangements, such as arranging for videocassette recorders and photocopying quizzes.

To undermine the argument we need to prove that
a. Les Bons Mots series is good, or
b. Hiring will not be effective.

A. All teachers in the school district are currently required to attend classes to learn how to adapt the La Langue Facile tapes to new educational standards. Out of scope: does not carry any value to the argument.
B. Once teachers have made lesson plans, they are more willing to move from their current positions to positions with new language schools. This may support the AD's objection.
C. Teachers with established lesson plans hired by foreign language schools are required to put in additional hours in administrative support, hours equal to the time they would have spent in making lesson plans. Correct. In line with my summary point b.
D. The average improvement in scores on tests of fluency in the director’s school is below the average improvement in standardized test scores in otherwise comparable schools. Out of scope. Not discussed about the standardized test scores.
E. The supplemental course materials required for use with the Les Bons Mots tape series require teachers to invest a great deal of time in logistical arrangements, such as arranging for videocassette recorders and photocopying quizzes. Opposite of my summary point a.

option E states the same thing , that time may not actually be reduced. how can we infer that option E will not take more time or less time.

E is refuting premise.

Target gmat against the odds.
