In Kravonia, the average salary for jobs requiring a college degree has always been higher than the average salary for jobs that do not require a degree. Current enrollments in Kravoniaâ€™s colleges indicate that over the next four years the percentage of the Kravonian workforce with college degrees will increase dramatically. Therefore, the average salary for all workers in Kravonia is likely to increase over the next four years. Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?
A. Kravonians with more than one college degree earn more, on average, than do Kravonians with only one college degree.
B. The percentage of Kravonians who attend college in order to earn higher salaries is higher now than it was several years ago.
C. The higher average salary for jobs requiring a college degree is not due largely to a scarcity among the Kravonian workforce of people with a college degree.
D. The average salary in Kravonia for jobs that do not require a college degree will not increase over the next four years.
E. Few members of the Kravonian workforce earned their degrees in other countries.

I will go with 'C'

A. Kravonians with more than one college degree earn more, on average, than do Kravonians with only one college degree.
Too extreme to be assumed from the given passage.

B. The percentage of Kravonians who attend college in order to earn higher salaries is higher now than it was several years ago.
This cannot be assumed becos the passage does not mention anything about the intent of the college students.

C. The higher average salary for jobs requiring a college degree is not due largely to a scarcity among the Kravonian workforce of people with
a college degree.
This should be it. If this is not assumed then the large supply of college graduates will bring the demand/salaries down and therefore will not increase average salary for all workers.

D. The average salary in Kravonia for jobs that do not require a college degree will not increase over the next four years.
This cannot be assumed, because even if this is not true the average salary for all workers will increase.

E. Few members of the Kravonian workforce earned their degrees in other countries
Cannot be deduced from the passage.

C for me.

Fact 1: the average salary for jobs requiring a college degree > average salary for jobs that do not require a degree.

Fact 2: over the next four years the percentage of the Kravonian workforce with college degrees will increase dramatically.

Conclustion: the average salary for all workers in Kravonia is likely to increase over the next four years.

B. The percentage of Kravonians who attend college in order to earn higher salaries is higher now than it was several years ago.

I think this has been talked as the fact 2. it cannot be assumption.

C. The higher average salary for jobs requiring a college degree is not due largely to a scarcity among the Kravonian workforce of people with a college degree.

this is best. if the demand decreases, then the average salary for jobs that require a college degree will not increase. The conclusion will be refuted.

D. The average salary in Kravonia for jobs that do not require a college degree will not increase over the next four years.

even if the average salary for jobs that do not require a college degree will increase, the average salary for all workers in Kravonia will still increase over the next four years.

1) In Kravonia, average salary for jobs requiring a college degree > average salary for jobs that do not require a degree.

2) Current enrollments in Kravoniaâ€™s colleges indicate that over the next four years the percentage of the Kravonian workforce with college degrees will increase dramatically.

3) Therefore, the average salary for all workers in Kravonia is likely to increase over the next four years. <--conclusion

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?

A. Kravonians with more than one college degree earn more, on average, than do Kravonians with only one college degree.
- Does not help.

B. The percentage of Kravonians who attend college in order to earn higher salaries is higher now than it was several years ago.
- Not important.

C. The higher average salary for jobs requiring a college degree is not due largely to a scarcity among the Kravonian workforce of people with a college degree.
- This is the answer. If the higher salary is due to a workforce with a limited skillset, then having more people with college degrees is likely to result in lower average salary.

D. The average salary in Kravonia for jobs that do not require a college degree will not increase over the next four years.
- Not important.

E. Few members of the Kravonian workforce earned their degrees in other countries.
- Out of scope

C it is.

Such a simple question . It is (C). Actually, I narrowed down to (C) and (D). Then picked (D) in hurry without looking back or negating .
