­Most research scientists who work for corporate consulting firms have low levels of job satisfaction. However, Expert Consulting is known throughout the industry for research scientists who experience very high levels of job satisfaction. Expert Consulting attributes its success in cultivating happy employees to its programs enabling staff scientists to work on their own research projects in addition to working for clients.

Which of the following, if true, most strongly supports Expert Consulting’s explanation of its success in cultivating happy employees?

A. Some scientists experience low job satisfaction when they must work more than full time.
B. Most scientists at corporate consulting firms come from academic programs that they entered because they enjoyed pursuing their own research questions
C. Many of Expert Consulting’s senior staff scientists divide their time between working on their own research projects and working for clients.
D. Working on their own research projects shields scientists from exposure to other industries in which they might find better paying jobs.
E. The cost of living near Expert Consulting is relatively low compared to areas in which some other scientific consulting firms.

Veritas Prep Official Explanation



Correct answer: (B)

Expert Consulting’s credits its success in sustaining high employee job satisfaction to the way it allows scientists to work on independent research. On this Strengthen question, look for an answer that explicitly connects happiness to independent research.

Only answer (B) does so.

Answer (A) is incorrect because we have no way of knowing whether working on independent projects and client projects together makes scientists work more than full time.

Answer (C) is out of scope because it tells us nothing about job satisfaction.

Answers (D) and (E) are also out of scope because they focus on the questions of pay and cost of living, neither of which are factors that figure into Expert Consulting’s explanation of its success.­
