What do you mean by "it" (in hot pink)?

C is the answer here because it's irrelevant—the passage doesn't mention anything that depends on the breakdown of the orchestra's revenue into individual sources (such as ticket sales). Please let me know if you don't see the relevance of any other choice(s).


Why is D relevant? even if we know the average age is 6 years so what? that doesnt mean most people have been there 6 years only.
1. Situation
People: 21
Average age: 6
All 21 guys worked: 6 years.
Conclusion: all 21 guys eligible for bonus

2. Situation
People: 21
Average age: 6
one guy :26 years
other 25 people: 5 years each
Conclusion: only 1 person gets bonus
So, this would give inconclusive info.

­It is about duration of employment or in other words, it is about the duration of contract, not the average age. So it is relevant

­Hi, may you please elaborate the answer. I am still confused. As per understanding union will bother least about "average duration of employment".­

Duration of employment matters because it will tell us how many of the musicians qualify for the new bonus for those with 6+ years' tenure. Therefore, it will affect the cost of the proposal.

C, on the other hand, tells us nothing at all, since we don't know anything about how different sources of revenue would affect the cost or acceptability of the proposal.
