As per your logic D gives a reason for higher pay. So does B.Why doesn't B fill that hole?


we are not loking for the answer to the question "why Y's hourly wages are higher than Z" .. B actually attempts to answer this Q.... we know wages are higher and this could be a reason.

But the logical question is - Y's hourly wages "must" be higher than Z, why must ? - the best way to answer this question is eleminate any other reason for total wage increase...

Which of the following most logically completes the argument?
Yorco and Zortech are two corporations that employ large numbers of full-time
workers who are paid by the hour. Publicly available records indicate that Yorco
employs roughly the same number of such hourly wage workers as Zortech does but
spends a far higher total sum per year on wages for such workers. Therefore, hourly
wages must be higher, on average, at Yorco than at Zortech, since _____.

A. Zortech spends a higher total sum per year than Yorco does to provide its
hourly wage workers with benefits other than wages -> this opposes hence eliminate
B. the work performed by hourly wage workers at Zortech does not require a
significantly higher level of skill than the work performed by hourly wage
workers at Yorco does -> out of scope eliminate
C. the proportion of all company employees who are hourly wage workers is
significantly greater at Yorco than it is at Zortech -> this does not support since no . of hourly paid workers is same for both
D. overtime work, which is paid at a substantially higher rate than work done
during the regular work week, is rare at both Yorco and Zortech -> out of scope eliminate
E. the highest hourly wages paid at Yorco are higher than the highest hourly
wages paid at Zortech
