In 1997, the evening adult education program at Bresgin University experienced a large decrease in enrollment by hotel and restaurant professionals—formerly a large segment of the program’s students. The administration believes the drop is probably due to an increase in tuition for those courses that receive degree credit, since the program had previously charged the same tuition for credit and non-credit courses.

Which of the following, if feasible, offers the best prospects for alleviating the decrease in enrollments for the evening adult education program, if the administration is correct?


A. Establish job-placement programs for students in courses relevant to hotel and restaurant professionals.

B. Conduct a publicity campaign to educate hotel and restaurant professionals on the benefits of adult education.

C. Offer credit courses in subjects relevant to hotel and restaurant professionals at the same price charged for non-credit courses.

D. Eliminate the disparity in the cost between credit and non-credit courses by increasing the price of the non-credit courses.

E. Establish a degree program made up entirely of credit courses from the evening adult education program.

D seems the best to me. If credit courses are costlier then non credit courses, then the attendants may not like paying more. Bringing an equal price to both credit and non credit courses would alleviate the decrease in enrollments.

I may be wrong, but here is how i look at it right now.

In D , they are planning to increase the price of non credit courses. which may not help to alleviate the decrease since its more expensive after the increase?

I am thinking of C.

Pre-thinking :
Because of the increase in tuition for those courses that receive degree credit, Bresgin University is losing hotel and restaurant students.

A. Establish job-placement programs for students in courses relevant to hotel and restaurant professionals. --> Irrelevant

B. Conduct a publicity campaign to educate hotel and restaurant professionals on the benefits of adult education. --> Irrelevant

C. Offer credit courses in subjects relevant to hotel and restaurant professionals at the same price charged for non-credit courses. --> Correct, Matches our pre-thinking, reduce the price for credit courses that hotel and restaurant professionals vouch for

D. Eliminate the disparity in the cost between credit and non-credit courses by increasing the price of the non-credit courses. --> Incorrect, though enticing, it does not address the main issue in hand, the catch is to make credit course more alluring rather than make non-credit courses less desirable

E. Establish a degree program made up entirely of credit courses from the evening adult education program. --> Irrelevant

Hence, C.

KAPLAN OFFICIAL SOLUTION:



Correct Choice: (C)

If the school is losing hotel and restaurant students because the price was raised for degree-credit courses, one solution, as outlined by (C), is to simply lower the price for those course that hotel and restaurant professionals are likely to take.

Choices (A), (B), and (E) all might make classes more attractive for the target audience, but none of these choices address the main problem—the increased price.

Choice (D) might make the non-credit courses less attractive, but it won’t make the credit courses any more attractive.
