For question 54, I agree that choice A is correct, but I can't find a good reason to reject choice E. Please explain.

The passage states that the observers mentioned in line 1 "have attributed the dramatic growth in temporary employment that occurred in the United States during the 1980s to increased participation in the workforce by certain groups"; therefore, those observers would not, as stated in choice E, predict "that the number of workers taking temporary positions would increase as more workers in any given demographic group entered the workforce". Those observers would only predict that the numbers of workers taking temporary positions would increase as more workers in those certain groups, "such as first-time or reentering workers," entered the workforce, not necessarily as more workers in any demographic group entered the workforce (ie if a large group of MBA graduates who do not prefer temporary work arrangements enters the workforce, the observers would not expect an increase in the number of workers taking temporary positions).

For Q#4 why is OA E instead of C,
in very first line, in fact we
are told that workers prefer temporary arrangement, but the actual factors of it
are because of fluctuating product demand and labor's reduced bargaining strength,
I selected C because of second factor cited earlier.

The gist is that firms decided to increase temporary positions for their own benefit.

From the first line, we have that entry by different groups were because they preferred such arrangement - "who supposedly prefer such arrangements." but deep into the passage we have that "[b]Given the analyses, which reveal that growth in temporary employment now far exceeds the level explainable by recent workforce entry rates of groups said to prefer temporary jobs[/b]"

So E is justifiable since we know that some employees did not necessarily prefer the arrangement. Keyword is "necessarily".

C says that they were involved in actions organized by labor unions. This is a recommendation and we don't have any proof whether they did engage.

Pls see this phrase...

"Given the analyses, which reveal that growth in temporary employment now far exceeds the level explainable by recent workforce entry rates of groups said to prefer temporary jobs, firms should be discouraged from creating excessive numbers of temporary positions"

The above statement is basically telling = people preferring these jobs are less in number than actually present.

Option A) Far more than can be justified by worker preferences = basically just a rephrase...
