Men have an easy time deciding how to dress on Casual Fridays because all they have to do is choose khakis over dress slacks and leave off the tie they would wear during the week. Women, on the other hand, have a much more difficult time determining what is casual but not too casual. Casual Friday should, therefore, be cancelled because it presents more difficulties for women than for men.

Which of the following is most like the argument above in logical structure?

A) Women on a road construction crew are frequently assigned non-labor intensive jobs such as holding traffic signs. This is sexual discrimination and should be stopped.

B) Members of a country club are given first choice of tee times on the golf course. Members of the public who would like to play the course should also be given this treatment.

C) Users of an open-source software program wishing to access to online technical support must submit personal information in order to register. Access to technical support should not require registration, as this is unfair to users wishing to remain anonymous

D) Full-time employees spend more hours in the office than part-time employees and have greater access to the sign-up sheet for Christmas vacation time. Because this is unfair, no employees will be given extra vacation time during Christmas.

E)A university charges twice as much for out-of-state tuition as it does for in-state tuition. This is unfair to out-of-state students, who should be allowed to pay the in-state tuition rate.

Logic:

Two groups M and F are doing same work -W.
W is easier for M and too tough for F.
So W should be suspended.

A) Women on a road construction crew are frequently assigned non-labor intensive jobs such as holding traffic signs. This is sexual discrimination and should be stopped.
Incorrect: Tells about W is easier for both M and F, so F is assigned.

B) Members of a country club are given first choice of tee times on the golf course. Members of the public who would like to play the course should also be given this treatment.
Incorrect: Doesn't say W is tough for M or F. Both groups are equally capable of taking tea time.

C) Users of an open-source software program wishing to access to online technical support must submit personal information in order to register. Access to technical support should not require registration, as this is unfair to users wishing to remain anonymous
It says F(anonymous person) doesn't want to do W, not that W is tough to do.

D) Full-time employees spend more hours in the office than part-time employees and have greater access to the sign-up sheet for Christmas vacation time. Because this is unfair, no employees will be given extra vacation time during Christmas.
Correct: Full time and Part time employees are assigned W in office. it is tough for part-timers so Vaction time(W) should be suspended.
This replicates the logical pattern.

E)A university charges twice as much for out-of-state tuition as it does for in-state tuition. This is unfair to out-of-state students, who should be allowed to pay the in-state tuition rate.
Incorrect: The work W(tuition fees) is different for both the groups. Our structure is same work assigned to two different groups.
