### HideShow timer Statistics

"Temporization" is a strategy by which an employer increases the number of employees performing a task while slightly decreasing the aggregate number of hours that employees dedicate to this task. Not only does it speed up the completion of tasks, but it also ensures employee satisfaction. The reason is that the aggregate number of hours dedicated to a task cannot be decreased unless employees feel satisfied in their work.

The claim made above regarding productivity rests on a questionable presupposition that ____.

(A) employee dissatisfaction causes more aggregate hours to be taken to complete a task and so would be prevented under "temporization"
(B) the goal of employers is to maximize their employees' productivity rather than their businesses' profitability
(C) the strategy of "temporization" would require employers to approach hiring and human resources issues in a challenging new way
(D) "temporization" is a recently-developed business strategy that has not yet been put into practice
(E) "temporization" could be implemented by hiring workers currently employed by competitors

What information in the passage would be most relevant to complete the blank space - the correct response to the question? Thanks for your anticipated collaboration.

I pick A.

However, I arrived at this answer more by POE than by understanding the reason behind it.

The argument says that the aggregate number of hours dedicated to a task cannot be decreased unless employees feel satisfied in their work.

This means the employers are assuming that....

Increase in employee satisfaction --> Decrease in number of hours for a task

If we put it other way.....

Decrease in employee satisfaction (employee dissatisfaction) --> Increases in number of hours for a task...Option A says this.

Only A talks about the relationship between 'employee dissatisfaction' and 'aggregate hours to be taken to complete a task' and in a right way.
