If Skiffs book is published this year, Professor Nguyen vows she will urge the dean to promote Skiff. Thus, if Skiff's book is as important and as well written as Skiff claims, he will be promoted, for Nguyen will certainly keep her promise, and the dean will surely promote Skiff if Nguyen recommends it."

The argument's conclusion can be properly inferred if which one of the following is assumed?"

(A) Skiffs book will be published this year if it is as important as he claims it is."

(B) Skiff needs to publish a book before he can be promoted."

(C) Professor Nguyen believes that Skiff's book is well written."

(D) Skiffs book will not be published unless it is as important and as well written as he claims it is."

(E) Skiff will not be promoted unless Professor Nguyen urges the dean to do so.

9 people out of 10 going wrong means there is a bit of confusion when it comes to IF construction...

Para..
If S's book published, D will urge for S's promotion...
If S's book is as important as he claims he will get promoted as D will urge and Dean will surely act on D's recommendations.

As soon as you read it, you should find the gap..
The importance of the book is directly linked to recommendations but recommendations were base on the fact that book gets published..
So there is a gap between the importance and the publishing..

Choice A touches upon this very issue..
If the book is as important as S claims, it will get published

A
