Peter: More than ever before in Risland, college graduates with science degrees are accepting permanent jobs in other fields. That just goes to show that scientists in Risland are not being paid enough.

Lila: No, it does not. These graduates are not working in science for the simple reason that there are not enough jobs in science in Risland to employ all of these graduates.

Which of the following, if true in Risland, would most undermine the reasoning in Peter's argument?

(A) The college graduates with science degrees who are not working in science are currently earning lower salaries than they would earn as scientists.
(B) Fewer college students than ever before are receiving degrees in science.
(C) The number of jobs in science has steadily risen in the last decade.
(D) A significant number of college graduates with science degrees worked at low-paying jobs while they were in college.
(E) Every year some recent college graduates with science degrees accept permanent jobs in nonscientific fields.

A. Peter says high attrition in science jobs are caused by low pay. But if the graduates flock to even lower paying non science jobs then his reasoning is not correct.

(A) The college graduates with science degrees who are not working in science are currently earning lower salaries than they would earn as scientists.

Had salary been the problem, as contended by Peter, the college graduates with Science degrees would not have been working for lower salaries in non-science fields. Validity of A proves that lower salary was not the issue, as claimed by Peter.
