It seems that employees at middle management positions who wish to get promoted to senior management positions in their companies should start purchasing clothes from leading fashion designers. In a recent survey of 1000 employees working at different senior management positions, as many as 80% stated that they only bought clothes from leading fashion designers.

Which of the following most weakens the argument?

(A) The senior managers mentioned in the survey only started purchasing clothes from leading fashion designers after they became senior managers.

(B) The clothes manufactured by leading fashion designers are usually very expensive and outside the reach of most middle level managers.

(C) Most employees at senior management positions are no smarter than those at middle management positions.

(D) Some employees do not manage to reach senior management positions, even though they wear clothes manufactured by leading fashion designers.

(E) Wearing clothes manufactured by leading fashion designers can in some way improve the prospects of an employee getting promoted to senior management positions.

Stimulus : Buying clothes from leading fashion designers will lead to promotion.
Weaken - cause and effect - reverse causation
A. The senior managers mentioned in the survey only started purchasing clothes from leading fashion designers after they became senior managers.
After promotion the sr. managers bought clothes from leading fashion designers.

The argument implies that most of the senior manager got the managerial position because they bought clothes from leading fashion designers.

we have to look for some other reason that shows that purchasing clothes from leading fashion designers does not help to get the senior managerial position. only option A refute this assumption.
A is the aswer.

What a argument :shocked If it becomes true then middle management will stop working and start buying only leading brand clothes...anyways...

IMO: Answer should be A.
