In order for the answer to be [yes] then both statements for an individual must be true: They have no direct report and that they have 5 or more supervisors.

The first question: "Do they have a direct report?" can be determined by looking in the Supervisor Id list. If an employee's Id is listed in this column than they have a direct report. We can quickly determine that none of the 3 employees in question are listed. Therefore none of them have a direct report and therefore pass this first question.

The second question: "Do they have at least 5 supervisors in total". The question tells us that if A supervises B and B supervises C then A also supervises C. In which case C would have 2 supervisors.

ONeil(id=8) is supervised by 11 who is supervised by 4 who is supervised by 9 who is supervised by 1 who is supervised by 6 who is supervised by 14 who has no supervisor listed. I.E

Oneil:11->4->9->1->6->14 added together : 6 supervisors in total. Mark "Yes"

Patel(id=7): 3->1->6->14 added together: 4 Mark "No"
Schickler(id=2) 10->6->14 added together: 3 Mark "No"

Yes,No, No

All of them doesn't supervise anyone and only O'Neill has 6 supervisors above him so for him answer is yes,while for the other two the number is less than 5

Re: The table lists all the employees of the Metro Corporations human [#permalink]
For each of the following, select ‘yes’ if it identifies an employee who, within the HR dept., supervises no one......
1) within the HR corresponds to that employee being in HR
Or
2) within the HR corresponds to the ones he supervises

I know, not very important here but can be tricky if multiple depts. present

Pls help

They are all in the HR department of the company. It is a useless specification the one given

Agree. But as previously mentioned, if multiple dept. present then it could be of significance. Any thoughts with that in context ??

Where is it mentioned in the question that there must be at-least '5' supervisors ? The question says 'S' supervisors.

has at least S. -> what is S here?

Hi guys!
The question originally asks for at AT LEAST 5

Could you please fix the misconception. It is problematic to comprehend what particularly question stem states.

This question is too easy for the real focus exam.

­Does 14 mean that the person is not there as he is not in the table and we must not consider him? how does it work?
