Studies have shown that people are more likely to fall ill when they are stressed. Since companies lose out on precious business days when their employees are not well, it is advisable that they implement regular leisure trips to keep them in good health by organizing several group-bonding fun activities that colleagues can engage in. This way, the companies can save on the money lost as a result of the business they lose when their employees take sick-leaves.

Which of the following must be considered in order to determine whether the proposed plan will be a success in achieving its purpose?

A. Whether companies can organize seminars by motivational speakers who can increase the efficiency of employees

B. Whether employees would find out of office get-togethers with colleagues de-stressing

C. Whether the management of such companies would approve the plan to hold leisure trips

D. Whether there is any chance that despite these trips there will be a few employees who will fall ill.

E. Whether there are any good locations in the area the employees are based in that can be used for such trips.

B is better than C b/c of the question stem that "whether the plan will achieve the result" -> the argument concerns whether the plan will successfully produce the desired result, not about whether the result will take place.
Note that C is the correct answer in another similar question.

I cannot fathom B being correct.The question is quite clearly "Which of the following must be considered in order to determine whether the proposed plan will be a success in achieving its purpose?".Why are we even talking about another plan...?

Experts please chip in.I try so hard to get into the CR mindset.Questions with answers like these somewhat rile me up.

If I am forced to choose I would chose C actually with the assumption that proposed plan has been accepted.But even this is actually a little wide of the mark.

B even if true has no effect on the proposed plan right..?

Am I missing something

Please let me know what do you guys think.

Please let me know what do you guys think.

Perhaps, we can try this way. First, we will negate B, but pretends that C is true. In that case, the conclusion may not be true because the trip which has been approved may not yield the desired results. On the other hand, if we assume B is true, but not C, the plan still works, but not to the company. Do you follow me?

Okay, let try another way. If you are the HR person proposing this solution, would you think whether top management will approve it or decide first whether the plan will work or not?
