### HideShow timer Statistics

The Asian American History Association receives approximately 1,000 proposals each year from individuals who wish to present papers at its annual meeting. The associationâ€™s officers would like to ensure constant standards of quality in the presentations from year to year. The officers have therefore decided to accept for presentation each year only the best 300 papers selected on the basis of the quality of the proposals submitted.
Of the following, the best criticism of the officersâ€™ plan is that the plan assumes that
(A) Professional associations cannot accept all papers submitted for presentation at their annual meetings.
(B) The total number of proposals submitted to the association will remain at approximately 1,000 in future years.
(C) Each proposal submitted to the association deserves to be considered a serious candidate for presentation.
(D) It is difficult to judge the quality of a paper on the basis of the proposal alone.
(E) The best 300 papers submitted to the association for presentation will be of the same quality from year to year.

E

Based on the proposals, the association selects 300 papers. But it has assumed that the papers themselves will be of same quality each year.

The question is asking "what is the assumption of the officer?"

We know it would be very difficult to judge the quality of a paper, but this is not what the officer assumes.

If the question were "Why is the plan of the officer flawed?", (D) would be chosen.

In sum, we know (D) is highly likely, but (D) is not the assumption of the officer.
