If you are all looking for an answer, i do not know. People are split between A and E.

I agree... a post *should* be followed up with an OA for analysis so that people can focus on their reasoning and learn... the operative word on the forum is "learning".

This forum is too good..

I first went for 'E' (to clock below 2 minutes..) then after seeing the counter arguments and explanations I was not really sure. The following explanation adds more rationale to pick 'E'

anuramm wrote:
Even i marked A for the reasons explained by SmashingGrace. But the OA is E.

(E) Because of the resolutions of Steve and JoAnne, neither of them can be appointed before a decision is made about the other one. That rules out making a positive decision to appoint in either case because no such decision could be the FIRST decision. But nothing in the scenario rules out Cecily's first making a negative decision (the decision, say, not to appoint Steve). Then she could inform JoAnne of that fact; JoAnne might then consent to the appointment and thus be appointed. Or, of course, the first negative decision might have been made about JoAnne, resulting in the possible appointment of Steve.

Thank you ps_dahiya...

Yuck I took the statement that Cecile would not appoint anyone on the council without their consent to mean that she would not keep them out without asking them. Which, in hindsight, is a very stupid thing to assume

I think a better approach is to not see what others say, instead respond to it with your reasons. Once this is done, you can compare notes. If you read what others have to say, then decide...doesn't help you to think for yourself.

Valid point gmatmba. 100% that should be the right approach. I am slowly getting into it. I can see most of your answers are among those first ones (replies)
