### HideShow timer Statistics

In MS Solutions, majority of the IT professionals work on Projects involving coding. A survey done last year found that as high as 30% of female IT professionals but only 10% of male ones committed errors while writing codes. The findings of the survey clearly indicate that a longer stint at writing codes and therefore a greater proficiency in coding makes male IT professionals much better at writing codes than their female counterparts.

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

(A) The male IT professional do not constitute a significantly larger percentage of IT professionals at MS Solutions than the female ones.

(B) The higher percentage of errors in newly joined IT professionals as compared to that in employees with a few years’ experience is attributable to the greater amount of coding experience.

(C) The per capita coding work done by male IT professionals is not significantly lower than that done by their female counterparts.

(D) The client companies of MS prefer their projects to be handled by male IT professionals because of the lower error margins.

(E) The male IT professionals, in general do a comparable amount of coding with reference to the female IT professionals.

The question is not self made. I got it through a study group. The question was pretty tough so thought of sharing. Plus I'm not able to find 'add a tag' option beside 'hide tag' so as to tag in 'other sources'.
