The current economic policy aims to improve the standard of living. However, as the standard of living improves, people get more amenities, and hence they enjoy more and devote less time to working. As people work less, this in turn reduces the economic output which in turn reduces the standard of living. Therefore, the goal of our economic policy is flawed.

What does the author assume in drawing the conclusion?

(A)People who are not motivated to improve the standard of living live a poor life.

(B) The more comforts that people have the more they enjoy.

(C)The world cannot have a constant standard of living that is good enough for mankind.

(D)People who enjoy more are not significantly more efficient while working.

(E)People who work from home work longer hours than people who do not.

If you use negation on answer D "People who enjoy more are significantly more efficient while working" destroys the conclusion " As people work less, this in turn reduces the economic output which in turn reduces the standard of living".
