New employees of Zace Industries are complaining about discomfort caused by excessive noise inside Zace’s factory. Experienced Zace factory employees, however, do not suffer any such discomfort. Although Zace accepts responsibility for the health of its employees, it has decided not to issue earplugs to new employees. Zace reasoned that the new employees would also become accustomed to the noise without using earplugs.

Which of the following, if true, indicates a flaw in Zace’s decision not to issue earplugs to new employees

A.Because the noise in Zace’s factory is absorbed by soundproof walls, it cannot be heard by Zace executives in their offices.
B.Many of the new employees interviewed said they would not wear earplugs on the job.
C.Issuing earplugs to all new employees would be a less effective method of reducing employees’ exposure to noise than altering the machinery to be less noisy would be.
D.The experienced employees’ lack of discomfort is attributable to hearing loss caused by the factory noise.
E.The machines in Zace’s factory have not become any noisier since the experienced workers were originally hired.

I will go with B. If employees said that they wouldn't wear the earplugs then they shouldnt have complained about the noise. And yet in the passage, they complain.

Please elucidate if my answer is flawed.

This is the reason I went with D

A.Because the noise in Zace’s factory is absorbed by soundproof walls, it cannot be heard by Zace executives in their offices. No relevance.
B.Many of the new employees interviewed said they would not wear earplugs on the job. Maybe new employees didn't know that there would be so much noise. The passage doesn't say that interview happened inside Azce’s factory.
C.Issuing earplugs to all new employees would be a less effective method of reducing employees’ exposure to noise than altering the machinery to be less noisy would be.
D.The experienced employees’ lack of discomfort is attributable to hearing loss caused by the factory noise. This clearly shows why experienced employees are not complainingg.
E.The machines in Zace’s factory have not become any noisier since the experienced workers were originally hired.
