A is correct: The statement alone provides a good reasoning not to implement the plan. The employees that participated in the trial were self-motivated.

Situation - In order to save money on office space expenditures, the company considers having employees work at home for a 6 months trial. The employees who have volunteered to test the plan shows their productivity to be as high as or higher than before.

Reasoning: Prove that the trial results NOT provide a good reason to implement the plan.

Option A is a straight forward choice. Its a skewed sample. What if other employees who did not volunteer are not self motivated and not independent. Might not result in sustained benefits.

Premise:
To save money on office space expenditures, a company considers having employees work at home. A six-month trial with employees who have volunteered to test the plan shows their productivity to be as high as or higher than before.

Pre-thinking:
Why would the trial results NOT provide a good reason to implement the plan?
- Generalizing from a small sample to the group depends on having a sample that is representative. In this case, the employees who participated in the trial are not representative of all employees. The employees who volunteered for the trial may be the type of employees who would be most likely to work successfully at home. It would not be wise to base a generalization about all employees on this sample.


A Correct.
