HideShow timer Statistics

Programmer: We computer programmers at Mytheco are demanding raises to make our average salary comparable with that of the technical writers here who receive, on average, 20 percent more in salary and benefits than we do. This pay difference is unfair and intolerable.

Mytheco executive: But many of the technical writers have worked for Mytheco longer than have many of the programmers. Since salary and benefits at Mytheco are directly tied to seniority, the 20 percent pay difference you mention is perfectly acceptable.

Evaluating the adequacy of the Mytheco executive’s response requires a clarification of which one of the following?

(A) whether any of the technical writers at Mytheco once worked as programmers at the company
(B) how the average seniority of programmers compares with the average seniority of technical writers
(C) whether the sorts of benefits an employee of Mytheco receives are tied to the salary of that employee
(D) whether the Mytheco executive was at one time a technical writer employed by Mytheco
(E) how the Mytheco executive’s salary compares with that of the programmers

Aging determines the salary structure, and programmers are having issue of less average salary w.r.t writers. So by comparing salaries of 2 groups (programmers and writers) having same years of experience we can evaluate executive's statement.
Correct ans:- B
