### HideShow timer Statistics

The less frequently employees leave the office for a restaurant lunch each week, the fewer sick days they take. Even employees who reduce their number of restaurant lunches by only one per week take less sick time than those who eat lunch at restaurants every day. Therefore, if companies started to offer on-site cafeterias, the absentee rate in those companies would decrease significantly.
Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the argument above?

A Employees who eat in cafeterias sometimes make personal phone calls upon returning to their work areas.

B Employees who are frequently absent are the least likely to eat in a company cafeteria.

C Employees who eat in company cafeterias usually eat more healthy meals at home.

D Employees who eat in company cafeterias use their working time no more productively than those who eat restaurant meals.

EEmployees who eat in company cafeterias tend to take more frequent breaks in the morning and afternoon than those who eat their lunch in restaurants.

OA and explanation will follow shortly after discussion.

I would go for B.

Even opening on-site cafeterias might not significantly lower the absentee rates if employees who are frequently absent do not eat in on-site cafeterias.
