C can't be the answer-only possible answer has to be E.Let me explain
If we infer C as the answer 'i.e average-ranked employees in large firms will work harder in order to get more than the minimal raise.'-this can only happen if the average ranked employee knows what his/her peers have received in terms of raises-we don't know anything about this.Also, we need to make another assumption that the average ranked employee is aware of this research.

Official Explanation:

Since the question states that employees who have average evaluations and do not have above-average performance will get a minimal raise, we can expect that average-ranked employees will work extra hard so as to separate themselves from their peers and have a better chance of getting a raise.
