### HideShow timer Statistics

In the effort to fire a Civil Service employee, his or her manager may have to spend up to \$100,000 of tax money. Since Civil Service employees know how hard it is to fire them, they tend to loaf. This explains in large part why the government is so inefficient.

It can be properly inferred on the basis of the statements above that the author believes which of the following?

I. Too much job security can have a negative influence on workers.

II. More government workers should be fired.

III. Most government workers are Civil Service employees.

(A) I only

(B) I and III only

(C) II only

(D) I, II, and III

B, it should be.

The first and the third statements are directly implied in the argument, but the author is not making a case, where employees need to be fired.

B.

Picked A.

III)It is possible that just one civil servant is causing the government to be ineffective ( like the top-most bureaucrat).
