The conclusion of the argument is "An accountant who uses a computer can earn more per hour than an accountant who uses an adding machine."
We are given:
1. That computer performs more calculations than do adding machine.
2. Cost of operating is same for both computer and adding machine.
If the cost is same then how can an accountant earn more performing the same task that is
calculating using a computer.

Answer : if the accountant is paid as per the number of calculations he/she performs.

Those who use computers get paid more than those who use adding machines.
Those who use computers can perform more calculations than those who use adding machines.
Therefore, the more calculations an accountant performs the more money they will earn.

Answer choice C states that exact conclusion.

I have a doubt for this question.

The Conclusion states - "Therefore, assuming the costs of using the two types of machines are equal, an accountant who uses a computer generally can earn more per hour than an accountant who uses an adding machine"

The conclusion talks about "per hour" rate whereas option C supports overall income.
What if the accountant with adding machine has higher per-hour rate but works less hours and accountant with computer puts in more no. of hours then earnings of accountant with computer has more overall income but still per hour rate is low.

broall !

We are actually given the conclusion that accountant with computer will earn more and considering this as true we need to find assumption.
