In a Venn diagram, C would be inside E. What C is missing, I think, is the possibility of the student starting before 1990, in which case the Micro seminar could or could not be a Must.
My vote is E. OA?

In the Business program at a university, all candidates for the MBA in International Business who entered the program after 1990 took a seminar on Microeconomics, and all candidates for the MBA in International Business who entered the program after 1994 took a seminar on Applied Economics.

If a student in the Business program described above took a seminar on Microeconomics but did not take a seminar on Applied Economics, which of the following must be true? ( Microeconomics + Not Applied Economics) --> ???

Candidate who entered the program in 1990 + (1991 through 1994) --> Microeconomics
Candidate who entered the program in 1994 + (1995 to the present) --> Applied Economics

If Mircoeconomics we cannot infer that it was 1991 through 1994 because this is a sufficient condition.
Not Applied Economics --> not after 1994 (1994 and before)

A. The student entered the Business program prior to 1995.
This statement could be true. However, we must eliminate this choice because we cannot ensure that a candidate for the MBA in 1975 took Microeconomics.
B. The student entered the Business program after 1990 and prior to 1995.
My choice. This follows directly from the statements above.
C. If the student was a candidate for the MBA in International Business, then the student entered the program prior to 1995.
This is wrong for two reasons. This means that all candidates entered the program. Too strong! Additionally, we must eliminate this choice because we cannot ensure that a candidate for the MBA in 1975 took Microeconomics.
D.If the student was a candidate for the MBA in International Business, then the student entered the program prior to 1991.
Eliminate. This means all students who applied attended the school. This is too strong.
E. If the student was a candidate for the MBA in International Business, then the student entered the program after 1990 and prior to 1995.
Eliminate. This means all students who applied attended the school. This is too strong.

B. We need to be focused on "Microeconomics" and 1990-1995.

A. Out of scope:- Prior to 1995 could mean prior to 1990 and we do not know about the seminars offered before 1990.
B. Perfect.
C. Out of scope:- Pretty much similar to A.
E. Out of scope:- Similar to D.

Who is a candidate for MBA in IB? A student who has been admitted and fulfilled the course requirements, not all those who applied.

Stem is talking about candidates for MBA in IB not about MBA in Finance or marketing.

B has broader scope. In other words we only know about candidates for MBA in IB. It is very well possible that a marketing MBA candidate who might have entered the program after 1990 or before 1995 might fit this or might not fit this. We cannot apply it to the entire business program.

Hence E.

But..."If a student in the Business program described above took a seminar on Microeconomics but did not take a seminar on Applied Economics" limits the scope to only those students.

Another E. The question describes the student of the business program and not the IB.

premise one: all candidates who entered the program after 1990 took a seminar on M, and all candidates who entered the program after 1994 took a seminar on AE
premise two: the student who took a seminar on M but didn't take seminar on AE

so we can infer that the student is belong to the candidates who took a seminar on M, and that the period of the program is less than 4 years
imo, only D, the best ans

E

A and B are attractive BUT the premise doesn't say that ONLY the students of IB will be attending Microeconomics.

because the period of program is less than 4 years, and because student took a seminar on Microeconomics but did not take a seminar on Applied Economics,
so if B is true, the student should take seminar on Applied Economics, but Microeconomics.

folks sorry to add on to the already stated answers. But wanted to bring in a different perspective..hope you wont mind. see inline diag below
Attachment:

diag B.JPG [ 24.83 KiB | Viewed 2023 times ]

Question stem states that a student took MicroEconomics(ME) but not Applied Economics(AE). So the student could be in either Row 1(Intl Business) or Row2(Some other discipline). Now for the choices

A is incorrect, coz there is a possibility that a student from Row2 took ME in 96.

B is incorrect coz of the same reason. There could be a Row2 guy in 96 who took ME

C, D and E narrow the focus to Row1, by saying Intl Business..so that good. We are looking for an answer that clearly restricts us to Row1 and between 91 and 94

While C sounds good, it doesn't clearly deal with students enrolled prior to 90. So incorrect

D goes way beyond scope and talks about prior to 91, so incorrect

E clearly narrows it down to Row1 between 91 and 94. So that's my pick for answer.

~ rest of the folks, me eager to hear OA
