HideShow timer Statistics

In the last year, a company has lost a few clients and gained a few. But the number of clients lost has been lower than the number of new clients. Also, the average sales for each new client are more than the average sales for each of the other clients. Therefore, it is likely that the company’s average sales per client have been increasing steadily.

Which of the following is required for the above argument to hold?

A. Currently, the total number of clients is more than the total number of clients that existed before the company lost some of its clients.

B. The average sales for each new client are at least equal to the average sales for each other client.

C. Most of the clients lost were already planning to terminate their relationship with the company.

D. There has been no decrease in the quality of the services provided by the company since the company lost some of its clients last year.

E. The average sales per client lost were not significantly higher than the average sales for each of the other clients.

A. Currently, the total number of clients is more than the total number of clients that existed before the company lost some of its clients. - Since in the premise it is given that the number of clients lost has been lower than the number of new clients. it is not a new information. Eliminate.

B. The average sales for each new client are at least equal to the average sales for each other client. - Premise - ''average sales for each new client are more than the average sales for each of the other clients.'' Irrelevant.

C. Most of the clients lost were already planning to terminate their relationship with the company. - Irrelevant.

D. There has been no decrease in the quality of the services provided by the company since the company lost some of its clients last year. - Irrelevant.

E. The average sales per client lost were not significantly higher than the average sales for each of the other clients. - If we negate this choice, the argument fails. CORRECT.

Answer E.
