Efficiency experts will attempt to improve the productivity of an office by analyzing production procedures into discrete work tasks. They then study the organization of those tasks and advise managers on techniques to speed production, such as rescheduling of employee breaks or relocating various equipment such as the copying machines. I have found a way to accomplish increases in efficiency with much less to do. Office workers grow increasingly productive as the temperature drops, so long as it does not fall below 68°F. The passage leads most naturally to which of the following conclusions?

(A) Some efficiency gains will be shortterm only.
(B) To maintain peak efficiency, an office manager must occasionally restucture office tasks.
(C) Employees are most efficient when the temperature is at 68°F.
(D) The temperature-efficiency formula is applicable to all kinds of work.
(E) Office workers will be equally efficient at 67°F and 69°F.

IMO:C

(A) Some efficiency gains will be shortterm only. (Then how come your method is better?)
(B) To maintain peak efficiency, an office manager must occasionally restucture office tasks.(WHAT?? WHY??)
(C) Employees are most efficient when the temperature is at 68°F.(Bingo)
(D) The temperature-efficiency formula is applicable to all kinds of work.(Passage is not differentiating among various works. There is only one work here.)
(E) Office workers will be equally efficient at 67°F and 69°F.(In the last line , should not drop below 68 is written. Contradicting)
