If they get customers to believe that earlier patrons have given large tips, cosmetologists can get larger tips from them. However, if cosmetologists give the impression that they are wealthy, their customers will not tip them at all.

Which of the following draws the most reliable conclusion from the passage?
A) wealthy people should not be cosmetologists
B) if a cosmetologist is wealthy, he or she will not usually receive big tips
C) if customers feel that a cosmetologist is not wealthy, they will tip generously
D) customers often give tips according to their perceptions of the cosmetologist and of the actions of other customers
E) patrons are not usually influenced by the quality of the service provided by the cosmetologist when they determine the amount of their tips

If customer tips are affected by how wealthy cosmetologists are or by how other customers tip, then D is the most reasonable answer.

It's an LSAT question. Less confusing than the fat intake question I would say

I agree with D here.

It appears from the passage that cosmetologists walk a fine line when it comes to tipping.

They must convince an individual customer that:
(1) other customers tip more generously AND
(2) they [cosmetologists] are not making too much money.

The information we lack is HOW an individual customer makes a decision on tipping a cosmetologist.

1. He/she gets a feel of how much other customer tip.
2. He/she ascertains that the cosmetologist doesn't appear to be making too much.

Bingo, D!
