Sure Enough Insurance is a large insurance company that has recently been experiencing financial difficulties. Claims are handled by claims coordinators who determine how much, if at all, Sure Enough must pay a policy holder who has made a claim. The aforementioned financial difficulties are forcing Sure Enough to fire 25% of its claims coordinators. To minimize the potentially harmful effects of these cuts, it is recommended that Sure Enough lay off coordinators whose average time of completing work on their assigned claims is the longest.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously calls into question the argument's conclusion?

A) No insurance payments are made by Sure Enough until a claims coordinator has completed work on the claim.
B) Other departments in Sure Enough Insurance do not have any job vacancies.
C) A significant increase in the amount of time it takes Sure Enough claims coordinators to complete work on claims could result in Sure Enough's loss of business to competitors.
D) Sure Enough's policy is to assign complex and lengthy claims to the most competent coordinators.
E) There is no significant difference between the premiums Sure Enough currently charges and those charged by its competitors.

IMO D
If the claim is lengthy and complex then it is going to take time to get processed by experienced coordinators .
If such coordinators are fired then the Sure Enough will loose business to competitors

A) No insurance payments are made by Sure Enough until a claims coordinator has completed work on the claim. If no insurance payments are made early that means more money in the insurance company’s bank thus more interest benefits less financial burden... then choosing D the means that we are stablishing that those agents that take the longest to resolve claims are the most competent, but no where in the argument we encounter that claim...any thoughts
