The easier that the government of Zanga makes it to start a wholly owned subsidiary in Zanga, the greater the likelihood that companies that have a sales and operations establishment in Zanga will set up R&D facilities in Zanga, thereby employing more people. For example, if foreign ownership of patents that are developed by citizens of Zanga who are employed by foreign multinationals is allowed, the unemployment rate will come down.

If the information in the passage is true, then what else must be true from the statements below?

A) Some companies that previously filed for patents will now get the full right to execute those patents worldwide.
B) More and more students in Zanga will pursue degrees in Science and Engineering if the restriction on wholly owned subsidiaries is removed.
C) If Zanga relaxes its regulations against foreign ownership of patents, more companies will expand their employee base in Zanga.
D) If more companies open wholly owned subsidiaries in Zanga, then some companies that do not have sales and operations today may set up shop in Zanga.
E) If the government of Zanga makes it easier to start a wholly owned subsidiary, then companies that do not have R&D operations in Zanga will start one.

Choice C restates the first sentence of the argument. Other choices are irrelevant.

Since it is a Must be true question the information in the stimulus is sufficient for us to find the correct answer.

B. Could be true.
C. Correct Answer, more employee base in Zanga means lesser unemployment (information already in the stimulus)
D. Setting up shops changes the meaning of the information present in the stimulus.
E. Shell game answer choice. Just because the government will relax the rules doesn't mean all the companies will need a R&D Dept. The assumption made in this answer choice is vague.

I think this a poor question, and that is a shame because I have heard good things about egmat. My issues are the bolded parts below. If the question stem said "it will make companies...." or something conclusive, C would be 100% correct. But, because this an inference question, we cannot say with a certainty that the C will occur.
