The Breton Symphony Orchestra board of directors and the musicians` union are currently in contract negotiations. The musicians` union is considering proposing a new contract that would demand the following: a 10% increase in musician salaries, the creation of a new financial bonus system for musicians who have been with the orchestra for at least six years, and a limit on the number of rehearsals per week.

The answer to which of the following questions is LEAST important in helping the union to determine whether the board will be inclined to accept the new contract proposal?


A. Does the orchestra have the means to pay for a 10% increase in musician salaries?

B. Are there comparable musicians not currently with the orchestra who would be willing to work under a less favorable contract?

C. What percentage of the orchestra`s revenue is generated from ticket sales?

D. What is the average duration of employment for Breton Symphony Orchestra musicians?

E. Is the proposed limit on the number of rehearsals per week reasonable when compared with industry standards?

The OA is not out yet but I would go with C. The contract negotiations are revolving around 10% increment, limited rehearsal hours & retention bonus. Options A,D & E directly speak about them, making these incorrect option choices. We are now left with B & C - If the answer to question B is no, it will make sense to change the contracts.

C is completely out of scope and should be the correct answer. Will wait for the OA to come out.

Between C and E, I marked C.

C could imply, on one hand, that only 10% on the revenue comes from ticket, and on the other, that 90% of the revenue comes from the ticket. We do not know whether this is significant.
