Adi93, Skywalker18 is right. The conclusion is the last sentence. You can tell because it describes an opinion (specifically, a prediction about what will happen in the future if a change is made), while the previous statements describe facts that potentially support that opinion.

In many situations in GMAT assumption questions, sometimes the right answers require extra miles of thinking (or even making assumptions) to reach to. So if answer requires that, we can't assume it's an incorrect answer. An incorrect answer is incorrect because of its role in the reasoning.

I will focus on A, C, and E. Let me start with C and E.

C), We don't know if the client is unhappy. The conclusion very clearly states that "client will be happier" not "client will be happy".

D), Be careful here - customers save the money when they purchase Air Jet tickets regardless of which airport they are going to use because Air Jet's air fare is low. So what could make them happier when they are paying the same money in either case? D's reasoning doesn't make sense, although part of that has a trend to make sense.

A), Why won't the staff pick other airlines? Why does him/her pick Air Jet? Based on the premise, Air Jet is just so cute that everybody wants to pick it? No, based on the premise, Air Jet's appearance in H airport increases the workload. So A's reasoning is better.

Feel free to discuss.

Hi abhimahna and GMATNinja,
I think the main stroke of the option choice E lies with whether the customers will become unhappy if they MIND and pay more money?
Logically speaking, People mind something because they are unhappy with that something.

Can you please explain where i went wrong.

Hey Nightmare007 ,

The only thing you need to understand here is if people mind about something, that doesn't mean they would be "Unhappy".

I mind you studying for GMAT but that doesn't mean I am sad that you are studying for GMAT. I may object to that fact but can still remain emotionless or happy.

Please check a very good explanation given here by our expert DmitryFarber .

Does that make sense?

Official Explanation


Because this question asks about the argument’s conclusion, quickly re-state it: customer satisfaction will go up if AirJet customers move to another airport, because the opening of their terminal has coincided with a rise in crowds. To find the assumption making this argument work, we need to find a statement that correctly links this rise in crowds to AirJet in particular. (A) does this, spelling out the reason for the recent crowds.

The argument is not concerned with other air carriers at the airport (B); some of them may be more popular than AirJet, but there weren’t overwhelming crowds before AirJet’s terminal opened, so this is not relevant to our argument.

Customers may indeed be unhappy with the slowness of service (C). Note, though, that it is the staff who have complained, not the customers (necessarily!) This is also not a necessary assumption to link the ideas that AirJet should move and that AirJet has overcrowded this airport.

The focus in this question is on Hatfield, not Chesterfield (D). While moving AirJet to Chesterfield might solve Chesterfield’s problem, it is not a necessary condition or assumption that needs to be made for the argument about AirJet and its attendant crowds to work.

The mindset or opinions of AirJet’s customers are not relevant to this argument (E), because if AirJet were to move, the AirJet customers would no longer crowd Hatfield--whether or not AirJet maintained those customers.

Answer = (A)
