The high number of errors made by the company's data-entry operators is not the fault of the operators themselves. These operators should not be blamed for errors resulting from confusing or misreading entry commands; such errors occur, after all, because the programmers who designed the company's data-entry system did not consider the needs of its users.

Each one of the following statements about the data-entry program in question, if correct, would reinforce the author's claim EXCEPT:

a. Commands for different functions are initiated by entering dissimilar words.

b. Commands for different functions must be initiated by entering words identical to each other except for the use of capital and small letters.

c. The various charts within the program from which operators must obtain information appear on a computer screen at once, with no titles distinguishing one from another.

d. Operators must read numbers displayed on the screen in columns and rows of very small type.

e. Messages meant to inform the user of various entry options use a wide array of esoteric technical terms.

The author's claim states that mistakes are not the fault of the operators but the program. The question stem asks us to find the one which doesn't support this claim.
So we can infer that we need to find one that states that it is the fault of the operators.

B, C, D, and E are all mistakes in the program.
A states that commands are given with dissimilar words, so the operators must have made mistakes. A is correct.

Each one of the following statements about the data-entry program in question, if correct, would reinforce the author's claim EXCEPT:

a. Commands for different functions are initiated by entering dissimilar words. ( this is a direct answer actually.)


b. Commands for different functions must be initiated by entering words identical to each other except for the use of capital and small letters. ( Sure it can cause confusion )

c. The various charts within the program from which operators must obtain information appear on a computer screen at once, with no titles distinguishing one from another. ( if it appears once i can only rememer first and the last letter :lol: so sure it can be a cause )

d. Operators must read numbers displayed on the screen in columns and rows of very small type. ( same here font size can be as small as mosquitos brain)

e. Messages meant to inform the user of various entry options use a wide array of esoteric technical terms. ( wide array of tech terms can lead to confusion)
