Moral and emotional choices are considered wrong on GMAT most often.

B. Eagle Trust recently implemented a highly publicized program for no-fee home mortgages.

Do we know the success rate of this program? No. Hence not a good choice for us.

C. Eagle Trust is in the process of switching its customer base from retail customers to commercial customers, which now account for over 75 percent of the bank’ revenues.

The only choice that hits the core. Correct.

D. There have been many aggressive new entrants into the retail customer banking business over the last five years.

Irrelevant

E. Eagle Trust is known for offering one of the best employee benefits packages in the industry.

Good for the employees.
