Imo A
Mr. Janeck suggests that Mr Stevenson is unqualified for the Job of a governor since he does not posses political experience.
Only A follows from the argument .

Mr. Janeck: I don’t believe Stevenson will win the election for governor. Few voters are willing to elect a businessman with no political experience to such a responsible public office.
Ms. Siuzdak: You’re wrong. The experience of running a major corporation is a valuable preparation for the task of running a state government.

M. Siuzdak’s response shows that she has interpreted Mr. Janeck’s remark to imply which of the following?
(A) Mr. Janeck considers Stevenson unqualified for the office of governor.
(B) No candidate without political experience has ever been elected governor of a state.
(C) Mr. Janeck believes that political leadership and business leadership are closely analogous.
(D) A career spent in the pursuit of profit can be an impediment to one’s ability to run a state government fairly.
(E) Voters generally overestimate the value of political experience when selecting a candidate



Conclusion of Siuzdak - Stevenson can win an election.
Premise - The experience of running a major corporation is a valuable preparation for the task of running a state government - this gives Stevenson a fair shot.

Only - A is close enough.

Your understanding is wrong! The question states that in what way has siu interpreted Jan!

Meaning what did she understand from Jan' comment!

Jan says that only few will vote for Stevenson because he has no political experience. Thereby stating that he is unqualified for office

B,C,D,E are OOS

Hello,

it seems that Mr. Janeck's argument focuses only on why voters wouldn't vote for Stevenson - because they're not willing to elect someone with no political experience.

However, Ms. Siuzdak response shows that she interprets his comments as if he himself believed that Stevenson was unqualified, not that the voters weren't willing to elect him. She says "you're wrong" followed by an explanation of why he's wrong.

So the key to this question is figuring out what Janeck or anyone might have said to elicit that response. Choice A becomes the clear answer. That seems like the response she would give to someone that thought Stevenson was unqualified. In fact, whatever Janeck actually says about Stevenson here isn't really that important...if you don't even think much about what Janeck says, the answer becomes clearer.
