The statement "employers will sometimes refuse to hire a job applicant because of an inconclusive polygraph test result." tells that the inconclusive polygraph test may've caused the employers not to hire. Hence the option "C" is apt.

A and B can be safely eliminated.
B sounds like a conclusion, and B is too extreme also, and B is not what must be true based on the passage.
D looks like an answer to detail question.
E is wrong because it says "some employers ALWAYS refuse", while we talk about "ALL employers SOMETIMES refuse"

When a polygraph test is judged inconclusive,there is no reflection on the examinee.Rather,such a judgement means that the test has failed to show whether the examinee was truthful or untruthful.Nevertheless,employers will sometimes refuse to hire a job applicant because of an inconclusive polygraph test result.

Which of the following conclusions can most properly be drawn from the information above?
1. Most examinees with inconclusive polygraph test results are infact untruthful.
Word usage : Infact, are showing us the definite answers. Whereas in the stem uses truthful or untruthful.

2. Polygraph tests should not be used by employers in the consideration of job applicants.
Word usage: "Should". What if polygraph test shows something else also rather than truthfulness or untruthfulness.

3. An inconclusive polygraph test result is sometimes unfairly held against the examinee.
Word usage: " unfairly" matching with the words " truthful or untruthful " and also sometimes.

4. A polygraph test indicating that an examinee is untruthful can sometimes be mistaken.
The stem talks about both truthful and untruthful.

5. Some employers have refused to consider the results of polygraph tests when evaluating job applicants.
It is the other way around. Employers have refused to consider job applicants on the results of polygraph tests.
