The present leadership in government will not endorse any action that harms labor unions, which provide the government with its largest number of supporters. Recently, the state legislature has proposed a change to workplace regulations, so it is apparent that the government leadership will not support the new regulations.

To evaluate the logic of the argument above, it would be most beneficial to know

A. whether the new regulations have an adverse effect on members of labor unions
B. whether any unions might benefit from the new workplace regulations
C. whether the state legislature needs leadership’s support to pass the new regulations
D. whether the labor unions have publicly spoken out against the proposed regulations
E. whether the state legislature knows whether the new regulations will be harmful to unions

The present leadership in government will not endorse any action that harms labor unions, which provide the government with its largest number of supporters. Recently, the state legislature has proposed a change to workplace regulations, so it is apparent that the government leadership will not support the new regulations.

To evaluate the logic of the argument above, it would be most beneficial to know

A. whether the new regulations have an adverse effect on members of labor unions
Correct choice since the government will not do anything that will harm its strongest support ie the labour union.WHile the union may not be aware of the adverse effects of the new regulation,it will eventually experience adverse effects whatsoever and will remove its support of rthe government.

B. whether any unions might benefit from the new workplace regulations
Analysing the possibility of union benfiting from the regulation is not relevant since even if it do benefit the passing of the regulation will be benficial to maintain the support. and if the regulation does not benefit the labour union explicitly it will still support the goverment.

C. whether the state legislature needs leadership’s support to pass the new regulations
The leadership support is out of scope as it is not impacting the point in discussion

D. whether the labor unions have publicly spoken out against the proposed regulations
While the labour union supports the govenment it may not speak out publically or it may do,but the government must know the opinon of the union,wether it may be publically or it may be implicit.

E. whether the state legislature knows whether the new regulations will be harmful to unions
First state legislature is out of scope.second even if the unions dont know the harms by the new regulation ,it will eventually experience them and remove support.
