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 would go with E.

What is the OA ?

(A) Proposal never talks about disclosing nominations to other than prospective nominees

(B) Irrelevant

(C) Out of scope

(D) THis cannot be done as the prospective nominee is not disclosed about the other nominations until he gives his consent to get nominated.

It took me reading the question couple of times before I could even understand it. Took me roughly 3min and 45sec to answer...

but can you explain how E is correct? you could get to an answer by POE, but what is E really saying? i still couldn't understand it.

I think I managed to crack it during my second attempt. Also the fact that we know the OA ('E') could have favoured it.

Let us address the premise :

P1 - when nominee: 2 or more--> introduce a new process
P2 - new process: Prospective nominees must sign a consent form
P3 - Before they sign, they should know the other nominees.

EC - no changes to the above logic of the proposal (no changes to above). And for some unforeseen reasons other nominees are not figured out
----> As we cannot break the proposal's logical approach on dealing with the nominees thus we cannot skip any premise. The proposal demands an recognition of other nominees before a sign, by which one cannot proceed ahead with nomination.

(E) If there is more than one prospective nominee, the proposal would make it impossible for anyone to become a nominee (by signing the form)
