The Americans with disabilities act (ADA) was designed to ensure that there is no discrimination against and unfair termination of differently-abled workers in the workplace. However, after the act was introduced, there has been a marked increase in unemployment among the differently-abled.

Which of the following best explains this seeming discrepancy?

A. A number of differently-abled people chose not to work
B. Not willing to deal with the issues of workplace discrimination of the differently-abled, several companies recruited fewer of them in the first place
C. Knowing that the act was about to be enforced, companies terminated some of the differently-abled while they had a chance
D. There was no act introduced that would guarantee a job for the differently-abled
E. The unemployment among the able-bodied has remained consistently high

Option B
marked increase in unemployment among the differently-abled. is the key point. Option B says that the employer, who is not willing to deal with the issues, recruits only fewer number of differently-abled persons in the first place.
While Option C can be correct, but IMO someof the differently-abled does not fit well with the conclusion of the argument "marked increase in unemployment"

IMO-

A-seems fine at first glance not choosing to work will definitely increase unemployement , but it does not deal with the 1st part of the problem . An Act was designed to ensure.....
so Out-

B.Not willing to deal with the issues ,several companies recruited fewer of them in the first place...
this statement deals with 1st part as to why ADA was designed and 2nd part as well !!
Contender

C. Deals with only the 2nd part - Increase in unemployment .
so -Out.

D. Does not fit into the equation.
out

E. Same as D.

B for me
