### HideShow timer Statistics

Recently a court ruled that current law allows companies to reject a job applicant if working in the job would entail a 90 percent chance that the applicant would suffer a heart attack. The presiding judge justified the ruling, saying that it protected both employees and employers.
The use of this court ruling as part of the law could not be effective in regulating employment practices if which of
the following were true?
(A) The best interests of employers often conflict with the interests of employees.
(B) No legally accepted methods exist for calculating the risk of a job applicant’s having a heart attack as a result of being employed in any particular occupation.
(C) Some jobs might involve health risks other than the risk of heart attack.
(D) Employees who have a 90 percent chance of suffering a heart attack may be unaware that their risk is so great.
(E) The number of people applying for jobs at a company might decline if the company, by screening applicants for risk of heart attack, seemed to suggest that the job entailed high risk of heart attack.

OA later some discussion
[Reveal] Spoiler: OA

an easy one

A) The best interests of employers often conflict with the interests of employees --> law would be effective if employers often conflict with the interests of employees, which indicates that employers doesn't take the possible heart attacks of employees into account
(B) No legally accepted methods exist for calculating the risk of a job applicant’s having a heart attack as a result of being employed in any particular occupation. ---> if there is no calculation method, enforcement of law doesn't make sense
(C) Some jobs might involve health risks other than the risk of heart attack. ---> law would be definitely effective in those "some jobs" the statement is referring to
(D) Employees who have a 90 percent chance of suffering a heart attack may be unaware that their risk is so great. ---> unawareness of employees can be an advantage by the employees in employing them in places prone to heart attack, law would definitely be effective here
(E) The number of people applying for jobs at a company might decline if the company, by screening applicants for risk of heart attack, seemed to suggest that the job entailed high risk of heart attack. ---> statement itself confirms the fact that job entailed high risk of heart attack, law is definitely beneficial
