The following proposal to amend the bylaws of an organization was circulated to its members for comment.
When more than one nominee is to be named for an office, prospective nominees must consent to nomination and before giving such consent must be told who the other nominees will be.
Which of the following comments concerning the logic of the proposal is accurate if it cannot be known who the actual nominees are until prospective nominees have given their consent to be nominated?
(A) The proposal would make it possible for each of several nominees for an office to be aware of who all of the other nominees are.
(B) The proposal would widen the choice available to those choosing among the nominees.
(C) If there are several prospective nominees, the proposal would deny the last nominee equal treatment with the first.
(D) The proposal would enable a prospective nominee to withdraw from competition with a specific person without making that withdrawal known.
(E) If there is more than one prospective nominee, the proposal would make it impossible for anyone to become a nominee.

I think it is D.

the first person, would never know who his opponents would be. The second person, can withdraw if he finds the first one too powerful.

I would have gone with C if it said that the last person was given better opportunity than the first person. Because the last person knows everybody in front of him.
But the choice says that the last person is denied the benefits the first one enjoys.

E as well.

Prospective nominees must consent to nomination and before giving such consent must be told who the other nominees will be: a circular reasoning.
Assuming that: A and B are nominees. A must know who is B before giving consent. B must know is A before giving such consent. --> No one can give such consent because no one knows who is the other.

If everyone is waiting to see who else is nominated then we have a problem.

Cannot be told ---> until consents.

Proposal says the prospective nominee should know about Y and then do X.
but existing scenario says for the prospective nominee should do X and then only he can know about Y.

In that case, assuming the existing condition to be valid, the proposal would make it impossible for anyone to become a nominee if there are more than one nominee.
