The football coach at a Midwestern college noticed that some of his players were frequently late to morning football practices and seemed somewhat lethargic after they did arrive. He directed his assistant coach to look into the matter. The assistant coach reported back that most of the late and less active players belonged to fraternities on campus which were renowned for their frequent and late night parties. The head coach then prohibited all of his football players from being members of fraternities. He reported that this would ensure that his players would get to practice on time and that they would have more productive practice sessions.

The head coach’s reasoning is not sound because he fails to establish which one of the following:

(A) He fails to establish a system to monitor his players’ fraternity membership and to impose penalties for those who do not follow his new rule.
(B) He fails to establish that his players are physically big and strong enough to be successful football players.
(C) He fails to establish that his new policy will ensure that at least some of his football players will go to bed at a more reasonable hour.
(D) He fails to establish that his best football players did not belong to fraternities anyway.
(E) He fails to establish that the success of the fraternity system will not suffer if the football players are precluded from becoming members.

(C) is the answer IMO
Narrowed down to A and C
(A) even if they are not the member of respective fraternities, that comes as a result of monitoring memberships etc, still coach cannot ensure that players will sleep at reasonable time and not wake up late and lethargic. since player can go out to party, outside the bounds of fraternity.
(C) This choice takes care of the most important aspect that the policy failed to establish

Why the answer is C? The problem was some of the players were frequently late. So, even if he makes sure that some players go to bed at a reasonable hour, how does it help? Why not A?

Hi 12.nehasingh,

The reason Option C is the better choice is it specifically states that
Unless the policy ensures that the football players sleep on time, they will not be fresh for the morning practice.
They will continue to be late and be somewhat lethargic during the practice.

On the other hand, Option A which talks about monitoring their membership at these clubs and imposing penalties
on those who don't follow the rule.

This is no way guarantees that that the players will sleep on time and unless they sleep on time,
they will continue report late for practice and stay lethargic during practice, and the coach will not be able to
have productive sessions.

Hope that clears your confusion.
