In fact, most of these healthcare professionals are less skilled in dealing in financial projects than is the average management professional who does not work in a healthcare field. Generally, medical talent and quantitative skills rarely go hand in hand.If the Financial Analyst's argument is taken as true, which of the following statements can properly be concluded?

A. No successful finance professionals have medical knowledge.
B. Some healthcare professionals are not less skilled at finance than is the average management professional who does not work in a healthcare field.
C. Healthcare experience precludes success in financial projects.
D. Any management professional who is not into healthcare is more successful in financial project than any healthcare professional.
E. Financial projects are not related to healthcare.

The Financial Analyst presents several points about the quantitative skills of healthcare professionals. In drawing a conclusion from the Financial Analyst's argument, we must be careful to choose a provable claim, whether or not this claim pulls together all the premises. We also must avoid extending the Financial Analyst's argument or selecting statements that are too extreme. Moreover, we should not allow this process to be clouded by reactions to the content of the argument; whether or not we agree with the premises, we have to find a provable conclusion.
1. This choice takes the passage's claim that medical talent and quantitative skills rarely go hand in hand to an extreme. The Financial Analyst does not assert that absolutely no successful finance professionals have medical knowledge.
2. CORRECT. The passage states that most healthcare professionals are less skilled in finance than the average management professional who does not work in a healthcare field. This implies that some healthcare professionals are not less skilled than the average management professional who is not into healthcare.
3. This choice again takes the passage's claim that medical knowledge and quantitative skills rarely go hand in hand to an extreme. Healthcare experience and financial skills are not mutually exclusive.
4. The passage does not say that all management professionals are successful, nor does it say that no healthcare professionals are successful.
5. The passage makes a distinction between medical knowledge and quantitative skills, which are required in financial projects. This does not mean that there are no aspects of finance that fall under the realm of healthcare.

Hello,

I want to refer this question to one of E-GMAT's Instructors.

In one of your technices, called the "Negation Test", you mentioned the MOST could also be ALL. in fact, most is simply - "More than 50%".

In this question, the answer doe's not go hand in hand with the definition.

thanks

Is "B" necessarily true? Can't "Most" mean "All"??

I agree. Although I was able to arrive at the correct answer using POE, I still have a doubt regarding the validity of the concept of "most" and "some" taught by @E-Gmat.

I think this is a poor-quality question and I don't agree with the explanation. Why not (C)? The argument simply says that healthcare professionals do not succeed when they try to deal with financial projects - Therefore, Healthcare experience precludes success in financial projects.
