Editorial: When legislators discover that some public service is not being adequately provided, their most common response is to boost the funding for that public service. Because of this, the least efficiently run government bureaucracies are the ones that most commonly receive an increase in funds.

The statements in the editorial, if true, most strongly support which one of the following?


(A) The least efficiently run government bureaucracies are the bureaucracies that legislators most commonly discover to be failing to provide some public service adequately.

(B) When legislators discover that a public service is not being adequately provided, they never respond to the problem by reducing the funding of the government bureaucracy providing that service.

(C) Throughout the time a government bureaucracy is run inefficiently, legislators repeatedly boost the funding for the public service that this bureaucracy provides.

(D) If legislators boost funding for a public service, the government bureaucracy providing that service will commonly become less efficient as a result.

(E) The most inefficiently run government bureaucracy receives the most funding of any government bureaucracy.

Premise:
When legislators discover that some public service is not being adequately provided, their most common response is to boost the funding for that public service.
conclusion:
Because of this, the least efficiently run government bureaucracies are the ones that most commonly receive an increase in funds.

the choice that is supported by above should provide a link between inadequate provision of public service and least efficiently run government bureaucracies

lets scan the choices--

(A) The least efficiently run government bureaucracies are the bureaucracies that legislators most commonly discover to be failing to provide some public service adequately.
this choice connects the two statements, so correct

(B) When legislators discover that a public service is not being adequately provided, they never respond to the problem by reducing the funding of the government bureaucracy providing that service.
extreme - use of never and also out of context

(C) Throughout the time a government bureaucracy is run inefficiently, legislators repeatedly boost the funding for the public service that this bureaucracy provides.
change in scope - least efficiently is different from inefficiently. May be they have different rules for inefficient working- for example dismiss the officials

(D) If legislators boost funding for a public service, the government bureaucracy providing that service will commonly become less efficient as a result.
out of context. this may give us a reason not to fund the less efficient works and would be correct choice if question asked a flaw in the legislators action

(E) The most inefficiently run government bureaucracy receives the most funding of any government bureaucracy.
Again change in scope from least efficient to most inefficient. both are different

A
