### 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

The OA is A

My answer is B. As it can also be inferred that as the govt. is so inefficient, then most of the workers are Civil Services Employees. Is this fine?

C - Civil Services
G - the government
E - employees that tend to loaf.

passage: [C] has [E]. [C] belong to [G]. Therefore, [G] has [E].
But [G] can contain many other departments like [C]. And we cannot conclude that [G] consist of only [C].

For example,
passage: Tom's cat and my cat are black. Tom and I live in the same city. All cats in the city is black.
This is generalization. You cannot inferred that all cats in the city are Tom's and mine.
