Flimco Solutions has instituted a bold plan to dramatically reduce its "carbon footprint," that is, the amount of nonrenewable energy it expends, by allowing two-thirds of its Salemville workforce to work from home up to 24 hours per week. By allowing its employees this telecommuting option, the company estimates that its carbon emissions will be significantly reduced because workers will not have to drive back and forth between theirhomes and Flimco headquarters.

Which of the following, if true, would most threaten the success of Flimco's plan?


(A) Most of the employees drive fairly late-model cars, many of which attain higher-than-average gasoline mileage.

(B) Some employees will need special accommodations in order to be able to do their jobs efficiently from their homes.

(C) A majority of Flimco's employees travel to and from work on a light-rail system that runs every 15 minutes, regardless of ridership.

(D) Flimco Corporation offered a similar option to its workers but many of them chose not to telecommute.

(E) Some of Flimco's workers live in homes that are not energy efficient, and would expend more nonrenewable energy maintaining the climate in their homes telecommuting than they would if they left their residences to work elsewhere.

I have to make choice between C and E.

The option E is talking about carbon emission generated from homes of employees. And we are only interested in carbon emission of company.
So E is out.

Now C is clear as employees frequently travel by light rail. So telecommuting won't help reduce the carbon emission.
C is winner.

Hi...i dont think E is out because of the reasons you mentioned.I think it is out because of the word “some”.

I went for C. It says that plan does not do anything about carbon reduction since most people do not drive to work.

E - 'Some' is not strong enough to weaken the argument
