Manager: Every organization strives to increase its productivity, for this increases profits for the owners and the likelihood that the organization will survive. But not all efforts to increase productivity are beneficial to the organization as a whole. Often, attempts to increase productivity decrease the number of employees, which clearly harms the dismissed employees as well as the sense of security of the retained employees.

Which one of the following most accurately expresses the main conclusion of the manager’s argument?

A.Decreasing the number of employees in an organization undermines the sense of security of retained employees.
B.If an action taken to secure the survival of an organization fails to enhance the welfare of the organization’s employees, that action cannot be good for the organization as a whole.
C.Some measures taken by an organization to increase productivity fail to be beneficial to the organization as a whole.
D.There is no organization that does not make efforts to increase its productivity.
E.Only if the employees of an organization are also its owners will the interests of the employees and owners coincide, enabling measures that will be beneficial to the organization as a whole.

Manager: Every organization strives to increase its productivity, for this increases profits for the owners and the likelihood that the organization will survive. But not all efforts to increase productivity are beneficial to the organization as a whole. Often, attempts to increase productivity decrease the number of employees, which clearly harms the dismissed employees as well as the sense of security of the retained employees.

Which one of the following most accurately expresses the main conclusion of the manager’s argument?

A.Decreasing the number of employees in an organization undermines the sense of security of retained employees. If the action of decreasing the number of employee has been taken in attempts to increase the productivity, only then this option holds true. Eliminate
B.If an action taken to secure the survival of an organization fails to enhance the welfare of the organization’s employees, that action cannot be good for the organization as a whole. Classic trap of changing the meaning by a subtle change of word.
C.Some measures taken by an organization to increase productivity fail to be beneficial to the organization as a whole. Perfect. Can't be debated over.
D.There is no organization that does not make efforts to increase its productivity. Where did this come from? Out of scope
E.Only if the employees of an organization are also its owners will the interests of the employees and owners coincide, enabling measures that will be beneficial to the organization as a whole. Absurdly irrelevant

C is the right inference.

Stimulus states that " not all efforts to increase productivity are beneficial to the organization as a whole"

Restating above statement :- Some efforts to increase productivity are not beneficial to the org as a whole.
