9. In 1990 all of the people who applied for a job at
Evco also applied for a job at Radeco, and Evco
and Radeco each offered jobs to half of these appli-
cants. Therefore, every one of these applicants must
have been offered a job in 1990.

The argument above is based on which of the
following assumptions about these job applicants?
(A) All of the applicants were very well qualified for
a job at either Evco or Radeco.
(B) All of the applicants accepted a job at either
Evco or Radeco.
(C) None of the applicants was offered a job by
both Evco and Radeco.
(D) None of the applicants had applied for jobs at
places other than Evco and Radeco.
(E) None of the applicants had perviously worked
for either Evco or Radeco.

Hi hallelujah1234 & ndidi04,

What the hell is wrong with you people. Why dont you read all the choices properly. The argument is talking about job offers and not job acceptence.
Read C again and evaluate it with B. B has to be wrong. If all the applicant accepted either at E and R then it is possible that E might offered job to 80 people (out of 100 ) and R might have offered job to 20 people. I hope you are not going through the storm created by batliwala in a hurry.

This is like denial of "enough time to solve the Q" attack by batliwala

Look at C again.

Anand.

Hey anandnk,

You are right. I had considered C but I forgot why I chose to accept it. I did not reread the argument. C is indeed the best choice. If D and N offered jobs to half the applicants, the arguments assumes that applicants went with either N or D but not both.

Thanks for the correction.
