### HideShow timer Statistics

Mayor Delmontâ€™s critics complain about the jobs that were lost in the city under Delmontâ€™s leadership. Yet the fact is that not only were more jobs created than were eliminated, but the average pay for these new jobs has been higher than the average pay for jobs citywide every year since Delmont took office. So there can be no question that throughout Delmontâ€™s tenure the average paycheck in this city has been getting steadily bigger.

Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument in the advertisement?

A. The average pay for jobs created in the city during the past three years was higher than the average pay for jobs created in the city earlier in Mayor Delmontâ€™s tenure.
B. Average pay in the city was at a ten-year low when Mayor Delmont took office.
C. Some of the jobs created in the city during Mayor Delmontâ€™s tenure have in the meantime been eliminated again.
D. The average pay for jobs eliminated in the city during Mayor Delmontâ€™s tenure has been roughly equal every year to the average pay for jobs citywide.
E. The average pay for jobs in the city is currently higher than it is for jobs in the suburbs surrounding the city.

I go with the choice D.

The argument says that the average pay for the new jobs is increasing. The argument can be strengthen by mentioning that the avg pay of lost jobs is either decreasing or no change.

And how do we know about the average pay of the newly created job?

From the argument
"the average pay for these new jobs has been higher than the average pay for jobs citywide every year since Delmont took office"

But that is still an ad. May be it is false ad.

The conclusion from the argument is :
So there can be no question that throughout Delmontâ€™s tenure the average paycheck in this city has been getting steadily bigger.

This is supported in one of the arguments that the avg pay of new jobs is increasing. This leaves an open question that even the avg pay of lost jobs might be increasing.......Hence if we contradict, it would further strengthen the argument in support of Delmont.

By the way what's the OA?
