he cost of producing radios in country Q is 10 percent less than the cost of producing radios in country Y.Even after transportation fees and tariff charges are added,it is still cheaper for a company to import radios from country Q to Country Y than to produce radios in Country Y.

This is a classic case of rigorous POE.

The statments above,if true,best support which of the following assertions?

A) Labor costs in country Q are 10 percent below those in Country Y.
Maybe the raw material costs are 10% low.

B) Importing radios from country Q to country Y will eliminate 10 percent of the manufacturing jobs in Country Y.
Maybe it won't.

C) The tariff on a radio imported from country Q to country Y is less than 10 percent of the cost of manufacturing the radio in counrty Y
After rigorous POE and removing all out of scope statements, i reached to this part.

D) The fee for transporting a radio from country Q to Country Y is more than 10 percent of the cost of manufacturing the radio in country Q
We arenot sure about the transporting fees.

E) It takes 10 percent less time to manufatcture a radio in country Q than it does in Country Y.
We do not know about the time.

Perhaps using some math would not hurt us- even though this is part of the verbal section of the GMAT we can still use math to clarify the stimulus

Cost of Production in Q - \$90.00

Cost of Production in Y = \$100.00

10& of the Cost of production in Y = \$10.00

Cost of tariff and export in Q < \$10.00

C
