### 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
(E) III only

Could (B) be the answer? The argument doesn't go so far to say that more government workers should be fired, thus eliminating II. If you look at the last line, the argument mentions that this is the reason for the inefficiency of the government. Nowhere else is the word government mentioned in the argument. The only way the government can become inefficient is if it had a large percentage of civil service workers. What do you guys think ?

I was wondering about the same thing. On exam day I would probably go with A (since that is a definite)
