IQ or intelligence quotient that deals with understanding information and EQ or emotional quotient that deals with understanding emotions are both key in assuring a person's happiness and ability to succeed. Although people with a high IQ are exceptionally brilliant at understanding information, when it comes to social interaction they usually have to work hard to understand others and to make themselves understood. Thus, a person with a high EQ is more likely to be happy and successful than a person with a high IQ.

What can be inferred from above?

A. People with a high IQ are not aware of the importance of social interactions in determining their happiness and success.
B. People with a high IQ generally have a very low EQ.
C. IQ and EQ are the only two important factors in determining a person’s happiness and ability to succeed.
D. A person with a low EQ but a high IQ is less likely to be successful than a person with a low IQ and low EQ.
E. A significant part of understanding people in social interaction does not deal with understanding information.

i selected E in this : A significant part of understanding people in social interaction does not deal with understanding information

B cannot be the answer because the premise says: Although people with a high IQ are exceptionally brilliant at understanding information, when it comes to social interaction they usually have to work hard to understand others and to make themselves understood------->that fact that someone with high IQ is having a hard time to understand others does not mean that he has a very low EQ (he can have an average EQ )just as the fact that if a person is having a hard time to understand a logical problem does not mean that he has a very low IQ ;he could have an average IQ

An inference is something which should be 100% right from the given premises of the argument.

A. People with a high IQ are not aware of the importance of social interactions in determining their happiness and success.
Cannot infer that People with a high IQ are NOT aware.: Out of scope
B. People with a high IQ generally have a very low EQ.
Need not be 100% true as the person with high IQ may have average IQ instead of very low IQ
C. IQ and EQ are the only two important factors in determining a person’s happiness and ability to succeed.
There might be other factors also which might play factors in determining a person’s happiness and ability to succeed. : Out of scope
D. A person with a low EQ but a high IQ is less likely to be successful than a person with a low IQ and low EQ.
The passage compares only people with high IQ and EQ. Nowhere in the passage, the argument compares people with low IQ/EQ. The reverse situation might be either True or False. : Ambiguity
E. A significant part of understanding people in social interaction does not deal with understanding information.
Is in line with the reasoning given in the passage
