Unless more teachers are hired soon, the student-teacher ratio in schools is likely to increase. Such an increase is likely to interfere with Green Earth School’s declaration that it will always maintain a standard of quality in its teaching. So, the school’s management is considering hiring more teachers.

Which of the following would be the most important for the school’s management to consider before deciding on hiring more teachers?
A) Whether the new people who are hired as teachers would otherwise be hired at other competing schools
B) Whether the curriculum presently followed by the school matches the standards of quality that the management wants to set
C) Whether the need to hire new teachers would lead to the selection of applicants who lack the qualifications and experience required to meet the existing standards
D) Whether the parents of most students would be willing to compromise on the standards guaranteed by the school
E) Whether the school would be able to take in a greater number of students if more teachers are hired

IMO: C. Only C caters the issue of meeting the standards, rest of the statements are irrelevant


Please give Kudos!!! if the answer if correct.

The answer is C

The argument talks about the change in ratio of the number of students to number of teachers and how it is going to impact the quality of education in the Green Earth School.
The argument concludes that the school should hire more teachers because of the increase in the student to teacher ratio and to maintain quality of education.


Now let us see he options .
A is irrelevant to the argument
B is questions the argument and it is explicitly mentioned that the schools follows standard curriculum.
C is our answer as it states that the increase in the hiring may result in hiring teachers who do not have required qualifications thus the purpose of the schools is defeated.
D Out of scope
E Again this is out of scope.

between C and E.
C is the winner while E is a trap.
The missing link here is the additional teachers and the teaching quality. C fills the gap.
