The chairperson of Acme Corporation has decided to move the company from its current location in Milltown to Ocean View. Most Acme employees cannot afford housing within a 30-minute commute of Ocean View. So once the company has moved, most Acme employees will have a commute of more than 30 minutes.

The argument requires assuming which one of the following?

(A) All Acme employees can afford housing within a 30-minute commute of Milltown.
(B) The chairperson of Acme has good fmancial reasons for wanting to move the company to Ocean View.
(C) None of Acme's employees except the chairperson are in favor of moving the company to Ocean View.
(D) Currently, most Acme employees have a commute of less than 30 minutes.
(E) Acme's move to Ocean View will not be accompanied by a significant pay raise for Acme employees.

The problem of this question is this fact: "Most Acme employees cannot afford housing within a 30-minute commute of Ocean View". Then the author concludes that "most Acme employees will have a commute of more than 30 minutes". Why can't Acme employees stay within Ocean View so they could have a commute of less than 30 mins? Because they "cannot afford housing" and they don't get allowance from the company. Hence, OA is E.

Other choices are irrelevant to the argument.
